Mommy Time VS Dating time

So, I have been divorced for a while and finally starting back in the lovely dating game. I havent brought many men around, but this guy was just the one I knew would go far.
I find it hard at time to balance the kid time and the man time during the week. Evenings are hectic and I dont want anyone to feel left out. I try to get him involved in homework time, but I feel the time with the kids without him isnt enough. What are good suggestions to make it easier to transition back in to a family home vs the single mom home??

When the weekend comes, and the homework is done, do family-oriented activities together with your beau. Whether you go to the park, a museum, go-karts.... depends on your kids ages and what you like to do.
Transitioning will be easier if they include him in the fun stuff. Save the serious stuff for when he moves in. That's still your responsibility, for now.

You deserve it, and need it. As long as the little one is cared for when you are out you should have no guilt feelings and enjoy yourself. Yes, you are a mommy but that does not mean you have to stop living. It's hard bringing up kids especially if you are alone and you are entitled to a little alone time from baby.It is better for you and baby this way because mommys need a break and you will be more refreshed and happier and not as stressed.Enjoy

I personally waited until I was with the person for awhile efore I even introduced them. I'm probably a bit overprotective but I like to give it time. I wouldn't even go out until my little one was in bed.
