My husband and I have three little boys, who are our whole life!! But at times we miss being able to do things with just the two of us!! We have no one to take all three kids, and I feel that if we dont start making more time for just each other, we are going to fall further apart! What do we do??

ask around your neighbourhood, ask your friends I have two `4 yr old twins that babysit for me I just recently hooked another neighbour up with them & she recommended them to another .

you have to find a church that does parents night out PNO u might have to pay a little money but its worth the time with ur hubbie. see if there is a family member that will watch them for a couple of hours. try to put them asleep a little early so that u guys cn hav a late movie night just to cuddle. e have three kids and find plenty of time even if u fall asleep its ok ur in his arms.

maybe a sitter who can come after your boys are asleep for the night??? of course make sure its someone the kids know so their not freaked out if they wake up in the night!

Do you know another couple who have 2 - 3 children? Why not try swapping babysitting either others' children? That way both couples can get a break and you won't have to pay for a babysitter. Then you can have a date with your husband.

Oh no, it is good you recognize the importance of harmony with your hubby! One small possibility is to try a youth program at a church, maybe a big church. We are three houses down from a FBC and dropped him there for a peaceful walk around the neighborhood, or stay for a bible study/sermon. The good news is there is a light ahead in the tunnel of parenting: they will get old enough to start in pre-K or some similar program. Can you afford to spare the expense of paying for a minimum of four hours up to a day once a week?? Family harmony and stability is a big part of a healthy founda- tion, very crucial! Please let me know how you two do, good luck.
