Once a week? Every ten days. Or maybe every other week. At least twice a month but rarely more than five times a month. Sunday morning seems to be a good time if the kids sleep in...Saturday it's also a good day to try to get a date in if you can find a sitter. It can be a challenge but it's do-able. I've got 2 kids 6 & 10. Also if he gets home early & they are still in school sometimes we get away with it.
