4 kids at once around the same age? Click here to enlarge No no, that would scare me, I have enough fun with my two. Click here to enlarge

It would be nice though to have someone to do a playdate type thing with.

Juni!

You don't know what you're missing! While it is a bit stressful on your morning to have the kiddos... when it is your morning off... it is bliss! Think of all you can get done! (or not!!!!!)

It's also great for the kids.

I need to find a family to share with . My SIL does this with 4 other couples for Saturday nights. Each couple gets one Sat. date night a month. It works for them. I'd have to really trust the other family. My kids are a bit on the intense side and quite a bit for people who don't love them to deal with.

Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge Click here to enlarge That is friggin impressive! I honestly don't think I could ever do it. I'm just not that good with kids that aren't mine. I never was a kid person growing up and small children just kinda scare me, I always feel dumb around 'em.

My hats off to all you guys who do that.

I do this from time to time with my friend across the street-who is also married to my cousin. Click here to enlarge

I have my four, who are 4, 4, almost 3, and 9 mos. and she has 3, who are 11-i think Click here to enlarge, 5, and 1.

It works out well for us, especially since we are right across the street from each other-no loading into cars. Click here to enlarge

Dh and I have though about asking some of the multiples parents we know if they would like to do this, but all but one couple has pretty different parenting ideas from us. The biggest thing now is they are all spankers. And the one couple that's not live way the hell on the other side of town, so it would be pretty inconvient to do this with them. We primarily get our breaks when we visit my family. My mom or sil will babysit for us.

Oh, btw, Sumerluvin, Click here to enlarge Wow, I could not handle that many kids by myself. Well, I don't think I could. I would need a good stiff drink when the ones that weren't mine left!

I wish I did! Maybe once we get our own place I'll find someone to do baby sitting swaping with twice a month.

What kind of clothes do you suppose would be worn by a man with a mole on his nose?

Sommer, holy shit!

I do it 2x/week, Fridays and Mondays, each with a mom who also has a 3yo girl. I was doing just once a week, but having that time only every other Friday wasn't really enough.

Find me on facebook - KHW.

Click here to enlarge they are all really good when I have them...it is nice if it is nice outside so I can take them out. They all play really well together. You should see us if we go out together...it is like taking a daycare out for an outing! We pray for good behavior on those daysClick here to enlarge!
