Have you and your DH/SO gone out yet, alone? Yes. MIL watches her for us every Friday.
What did you two do? We usually don't do too much. We go out to eat and rent some movies. Woohoo! LOL!
How many times did you call home? None! I know she's in good hands. I completely trust my MIL!
We have been out on a couple dates. We went to Avatar and out to lunch. My mother in law watched her and we didnt call. We left her overnight with my mom once and we checked in at night and first thing in the morning. We spent the whole night away watching videos of her and looking through her photos!!
Have you and your DH/SO gone out yet, alone? We did when she was 6 weeks old
What did you two do?We had tickets for TSO (Trans Siberian Orchestra) a friend of mine sings with them and I couldn't miss the show. Had the tickets for MONTHS before she arrived
How many times did you call home? I only called once ... SHOCK huh ?!
Have you and your DH/SO gone out yet, alone? Twice...once when LO was 2months old DH was in a wedding and again when LO was 5months we got free tickets to a concert.
What did you two do?Wedding and a concert
How many times did you call home? for the wedding only once he was with my mom and doing great but sent a few text. For the concert about once an hour he was crying so I was worried about him.
I think we would do more if we lived closer to my mom. My in-laws are great but they freak out when LO starts to fuss even just a little bit. It makes me very uneasy about letting them watch him. So we just tend to do things where LO can come along.

Reason: add more
Tom and I have gone out 3 times alone, all 3 times we went to bars.
On my birthday we went to so shmancy resturant, then met another couple at a bar, it was my friends boyfriends birthday too. I called home after the resturant, but that was it.
The 2nd time we went to a billiards bar, shot pool and had a few drinks.
3rd time we went to the bowling alley I used to work at, had a drink, then went down the street to a bar that was just opened by one of the regular bowlers, they were supposed to have a dj playing 'oldies' and when we got there they were play old skool rap/hip hop, it was hilarious, it was pretty fun watching my 6 ft 4, 175 lbs total white boy hubby 'rapping' to the music, as it was all stuff we knew.
hopefully we will be going out this weekend, as friday is our 5 yr anniversery.

The first time we went out alone after he was born he was about a month and a half old. We went to dinner and to see New Moon. We've gone out a few times since then, but not a lot. Usually our neighbor watches both of our kids when we go out. I didn't actually call home at all this time around. I knew if something was up she'd call me
We've gone out twice since Catie's birth. Once in November and once in March. I just told DH we need to go out again. Both times we went out to eat and to see a movie. i think the first time i called home twice to check on the kids. And the next time i called home once.

Have you and your DH/SO gone out yet, alone? Once a couple of months ago.
What did you two do? We went to dinner and came right home.
How many times did you call home? Once but we were only gone for about 2 hours.
I think we are actually going to go out Saturday night. DH usually works Saturday nights but he's off this week. We're either going to go to a movie or dinner. I don't really want to do both because I don't want to be away from the baby that long and it's too expensive to do both now.
We've been out a few times for maybe 2 hours. Each time we go out to eat at to Target and end up buying stuff for the kids. I don't call. I do text my little sisters who live with my mom because they will tell me if she's really OK while my mom will lie and say she's fine even if she won't stop crying.
