This Saturday, my in-laws are taking my daughters for a sleep over. I am really excited because my husband and I haven't been able to spend much time together because of his work schedual. I am also excited because he told me that we are going out but he won't tell me where we are going, or what we are doing and it's starting to drive me a little crazy. Has your spouse or partner every done anything like this for you? What did you do? Was it a lot of fun? Do you look forward to spending time alone? Would you rather go out or stay at home with them?

Hi, CRIVAS. Yes, my husband has surprised me at times too. This sounds like fun about you and your husband going out together. I hope that the two of you will have so much of fun together. I would rather go out somewhere, while the kids are with their grand parents. This is a big break for the both of you. Have a great time out!

i am used to be with my kids all the time, especially during night time. i can't spend the night without them, i can't sleep well and i am always thinking of them whenever they're away.

Last Friday night my mum had two of our six children as we have not had much time to our selves as well as hardly any sleep.My son who is seven years old tend to not go to sleep until late and he also then wakes up during the night as he is scared,he thinks he say a ghost in his room a few month back.We stayed in and we watched tv then we went to bed together just for a change,we both enjoyed our night together as well as getting the sleep.

Wow I actually do understand this completely. I'm Not married but my sister who was married a few times, does have 3 children of her own & she really does Not spend much one on one time with eachother & being that I actually try to be a very sweet, caring & loving aunt to her kids, prehaps more then I should, I end up having to watch the kids or they just want to spend as much time with me, because I do like to do fun things with them. But I'll admit that I do understand where You are coming from here because my sister & her 3 kids still live with me & my family, & she's devorced & is the only real parent the kids do have. I still wonder how all of your parent are actually able to get through being a parent, Cause what's I scene with my sister That to me was just completey horrible. Thankyou for asking!

when our daughters were younger i used to love to go out without the girls after being home with them all the time. now they are older (12 and 16) and we get more opportunities plus, hubby is unemployed so when i am not working, we are home alone during the day. i like being with him without the kids even after 22 years of marriage!
