Parent alone time?

Having older kids you would think you have more "alone" time with your spouse..well not for us. Living 500 miles away from family we really dont get to have a babysiter or time away. Honestly I really dont trust babysitters anymore. Anyways..so any intamite time with us is for 30 min. I get done work at 2:30 and then pick up the kids at 3:00. So its 30 mins of fun and thats it! Whenever we try to sneak in the room..we see little fingers under the door..they are giggling listening saying ...are you guys making another brother or sister! I dont know where they come up with these things but you have to giggle. I then open the door to say..nooo just getting dressed! lol How do you and your spouse get "alone" time in with the older kids without them knowing whats going on?

    My kids make me feel like a twitterpated teenager being watched by my parents sometimes. I can't wait until they're old enough to just tell them if we didn't sneak away they wouldn't exist.

      After they fall asleep or before they wake up.

        With us, by the time everyone is in bed we are just as exhausted.

        Yes, us too. But we make ourselves more exhausted because when we don't we lose each other and start fighting because there's no communication.

          Early morning or after bed. Sometimes we sneak away in the afternoon...I don't like doing it at that time because there's more chances to be interrupted.
