Do you have a regular babysitter? Just family? A friend?

How often does someone watch your child(ren) so you can have a night out?

Do you have a regular babysitter? Just family? A friend? My parents usually watch Jack but I also have a friend who has watched him once for a night out

How often does someone watch your child(ren) so you can have a night out? Not very often. My parents live out of state so when they visit we have a night out.

We have a sitter for during the week when I work....then if we do something on the weekends, we either use one of my SIL's or my parents/DH's parents (both sets of parents live a ways away so using them is limited). I would like to use a neighborhood girl for the weekends now that Brady is older.

ETD: We probably get out once a month or so.

Just my parents, but they're 2 hrs away so it's rare (less than a handful of times since he was born).

I have three regular sitters...two of them are 15 and one is 20. I rely on the 20 year old if we are going to leave the city for a date night because her fiance comes with the package and they are both like family and our girls LOVE them.

For quick day jaunts or just a movie or dinner, we call on the younger ones.

It's nice to have a few lined up just in case the others are busy.

**EDITED TO ADD** We don't go out too much. Maybe once every other month or so. Sometimes we go more often if there are special events going on, but we just don't get out that often.

My mom or MIL. We only go out together without her about once every three months.

The only place she goes overnight is my SIL's. For day stays it's usually MIL/FIL or my mom's.

Every year for our anniversary we go away at least for the night. This year it was the weekend. Other then that she's just about always with us.

Do you have a regular babysitter? Just family? A friend? No baby sitter for us--my mom use to watch him but she is having health problems right now...and I don't trust anyone else.

How often does someone watch your child(ren) so you can have a night out? HAHA Never! I haven't been without Logan since about April or so...
