Date Night Question...
May 21, 2010 at 1:27 PM

For moms who already have 2U2:

I'm pregnant with my second and I was wondering:

Do you find it hard to find someone to watch both of your kids?

I love being able to get out with my fiance once in a while (without baby), but I'm scared that no one will want to watch them at the same time. Is this something you run into or am I just being too nervous? Thanks!

    It's Harder but not impossible. I have people watch them in teams of two, like grandma and grandpa, or my sister and my aunt.

    I've had my sister come over after they were in bed for the night and she just sat on my couch while I went to my husband's band's show. It was in town, "just in case."

    This has been a problem for me.  Everyone seems willing to take one, but the pair is out of the question.  Just at this age.  They are one and two.  The youngest isn't walking yet.  I think it's hard for my friends to chase/clean-up after a toddler while dealing with the meltdowns.  Then add in the one-year-old who still need lots of help and it's just too much.  He wants attention, wants to be held, needs to be cleaned up, etc.  We don't get out much!
