How often does mom need a break? "Every night! I'm just kidding. Needs and should are different! My husband and I are really trying to be good about date night. So once a week we get a babysitter and we go, even if it's just go to dinner. Just to know that you have that to look forward to is such a gift. So really, if you can manage it, at least once every two weeks — just so it's not so far into the future that you can't look forward to it."
