This is one of my favorite challenges because we already do this lol. We are so lucky and blessed to have my parents just two towns over and thank goodness, they love having the kids over. They actually make us come over every sunday for dinner. Truthfully, I know that it doesn’t matter if Hubby and I even go; all they care about is seeing the kids at least once a week.
We also get lucky that Hubby’s family in Ohio loves to see the kids and whenever we visit, my Mother-in-law practically steals my children and keep them with her during the whole visit. We make a point to ask her if she’d like us to take them off of her hands at any point, but we get shooed away and she basks in the crying, crankiness that is my children. Kristen says to make a point of planning some time away with just each other, and even if that doesn’t happen until 2012, at least start the planning to get the fire sparked. We’ll be taking our trip together for a blog conference this summer and will be alone for at least 2 and a half days. I’m pretty excited about that and so is hubby even though he’ll be spending lots of time in the room waiting for me to get out of classes.
