How to spend more time with your husband, now that you have a family.

Hello, I am a mom of 2 (daughter 2 years and a son who is 8 months) and I have a husband. My husband and I moved to a new city for a job opportunity when I was 7 months pregnant with my daughter. We have two children now and family is 4 hours away, and we never get any alone time. I look forward to the kids going to sleep so I can spend time with my husband, but something always gets in the way, either one kid has permission from dad to stay up a little later or another kid is fighting sleep. I miss having a social life with my husband, I miss feeling loved and most of all I want to feel affection sometimes. Anyone else dealing with this or has dealt with this? I could really use some advice on this one. :)

I have the fortune of living five minutes away from family but what I think you need to do is find a babysitter you love and trust. (We use family but I realize that's not an option for you). Set a date night once a month. hat is what my husband and I do and have done since the kids were little (my boys are now 11 and 8). You said you have family relatively close (4 hours away) if they are game I might also try to set-up a "weekend getaway" for the kids. If your relatives are willing meet at a central location on a Friday evening to drop the kids off, have the weekend with just each other and pick them up again on a Sunday afternoon. The once a month date night is a must though!
