Moms night out

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Archive April 2006: Moms night out
By Jackie on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 01:05 pm:

What does that mean to you? I belong to a local playgroup, and we normally do a moms night out once a month, or once every 2 months. This is the night we are going to the comedy club. Only 3 of us out of 12 are going. Anyways, I find out today that the other 2 are bringing their husbands. I dont get it. Granted, we dont do babysitters. But, even if we did, if I were going to a moms night out, then I would leave my husband at home.I have another friend coming with me(not from the group, but her husband is staying at home)so Its not like I would feel like the 5th wheel. I guess it just bugs me a bit.

I wouldn't take my hubby on a mom's night out. I go out to the show with a friend every once in a while. I also do things with my mom. I know it's not the same as what you're doing, but it's still time with just another woman or 2. I love that time!

Moms night out is just what you think it should be moms ONLY.We do ours once a month and we usually will do something different movies/play pool/bowling.Its fun to get out and have girlfriend time.

So would it bug any of you if the others brought their husbands to moms night out?

By Melanie on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 01:35 pm:

To me a Moms Night Out is for the ladies. I would leave dh at home. :)

By Melanie on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 01:35 pm:

Yes, it would bug me too. :)

Yes, it would bug me. It is called MOM'S night out for a reason.

By Tripletmom on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 01:38 pm:

Yes it would bug me.Its catch up time and maybe sometimes to vent.Who needs another male in the group when thats why you're having you're night out.Why have the night out at all?

Yes it would bug me! It's not date night, it's Mom's Night Out for heaven's sake!!

Depends...if they don't see their husbands enough as it is, it's nice to get out of the house and hang out with friends. If you do see your husbands a lot, then yes, it would bug me.

Yes, it would bug me, we have our birthday club and with all the members it's usually once a month of getting together. My dh and I also host several happy hours a year where families are welcome to come, have drinks and appetizers, play games etc. And we always host the annual Memorial day bash so there are usually plenty of opportunities to have couple and friend times!

By Jackie on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 02:17 pm:

You have a good point Heidi. I can say that I think both these ladies see their husbands a lot. We live in a big military town, and neither of these husbands are in the military so they are home each and every night.

By Conni on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 02:41 pm:

Tell me where in the phrase 'Mom's Night Out' does it say anything about dad's, husbands, boyfriends or kids? :)

Yes, it would bug me too.

By Ginny~moderator on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 07:01 pm:

It would bug me too, and I hope the rest of you make it clear to these two ladies that if they want to spend the evening with their husbands, don't do it on your Mom's Night Out time.

By Marcia on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 07:58 pm:

Yes, it would bug me. If hubbies were invited it wouldn't be called MOM'S night out! If they want to do a couples thing, it should be done at another time.

By Sandysmom on Friday, April 21, 2006 - 11:46 pm:

It would bug me too. (just had to put my opinion in, LOL) And, I'm glad you are bringing a friend because then it would be awkward. It would be couples conversations.

By Deek on Saturday, April 22, 2006 - 08:13 am:

It would bug me as well..and ,honestly, I cant see my husband WANTING to come..at least your friend is coming with you

By Bluedevilmom on Saturday, April 22, 2006 - 09:56 am:

it would bug me too; I do enjoy spending time with my husband (just us) and sometimes together with other couples...but "moms nite" is exactly what it says "MOMS nite". I would be annoyed also!!

By Andi on Saturday, April 22, 2006 - 10:29 am:

When my friends and I do a Moms Night Out the husbands stay home!! :)
