RQOTD - Wednesday

Who watches your children when you're not? If you work outside of the home, where do they go for daycare? Home? Center? Nanny?

When you and dh go on a date, who watches them?

What about when you head out for some alone time?

Deacon is at daycare when I work. His daycare is in my building, so I see him any time I want.

When Jus and I go out my mom watches him. She lives in our neighborhood so its really easy to drop him off and pick him up.

When I want to be alone Justin keeps him.

I use the gym daycare when I work out.

Dh watches them when I have to work.

My Dad generally watches them for the rest of the time. The IL's have helped out a lot too, but since they don't actually watch the kids, I'll stick with my Dad for a while.

I'm actually running into my first babysitting hurddle this weekend. DH is out of town and I need to have a sitter for Friday night so I can work. My Dad is unable, and I'm not asking the IL's. So it will get interesting finding someone who can come over that late at night.

When you and dh go on a date, who watches them? We have not been on a date in about forever. But if we do go out my mom-a-law watches her.

What about when you head out for some alone time? DH or my mom-a-law. Occasionally my mom will watch her but that is not very often.

We have a home-based daycare that we use but she is currently on maternity leave. So my SIL watches them in our home when we are both working. Usually DH is home during the day and I take the evening/nights/weekends when he is working.

Dating...what is that? Smile We hire a neighbour or MIL will take them when we go out which is very rarely.

DH takes the kids when I need to go out by myself.

If I'm not watching Aiden then DH is. DH and I have only been on three dates. Once my parents watched DS (this was last Christmas), once friends that have already moved away watched him (this was last March), and once another set of friends watched him (they just had a baby and are moving right behind us).
And ummm....alone time...what's that?! DH has only been alone with DS like 6 times ever. He just hasn't had the free time this past year. This past week DH took DS with him out to town. It was the first time DH had left the house and did an outing alone with DS.
