So I'm 8 months pregnant and I have 4 year old twin girls, how do I stay relaxed when dealing with them when their dad is gone?

also, teach your children downtime. my kids at 3 & 4 understood quiet time. it meant they could play quietly, look through books, etc while i just put my feet up. I kept the time short and manageable for them..20 to 30 minutes.

My kids are a year apart. When they were toddlers, it was very exhausting. My husband was deployed when they were young and it was very hard. Try to find activities they enjoy and keep them occupied for some down time. blocks..coloring..even a movie now and then. There were times i simply locked myself in the room with them while they played and I would layon the floor just to rest my body. Take them out to the park and let them run around some to exhert some of their energy. Have them read a book to you. You may not get alot of sleep time per se..but some time to at least rest your body.

Just enjoy them. They won't be 4 forever. Take them to the playground. You can sit on the bench and watch them. If you mean REALLY relaxing, wait until they're in bed, and take a bath!
