    hello, I wondered if anyone else out there is a single parent of multiples and how you coped if and when the children were small please? My twins are 2 years 9 months old and are running me absolutely ragged at the moment. I mean, we are coping, there is food on the table and the kids are clean, but I am so, so tired. I’m trying to find tiny breaks when I can but between keeping the girls out of mischief (like nearly suffocating the cat, for instance) and keeping the peace between them.. they’re at such a tricky age, there’s so much boundary pushing and the tantrums are intense. One twin shouts nearly all the time even when she’s not frustrated or angry and has taken to scratching, punching and biting me. The other is seeming a little bit withdrawn – she was daddy’s girl until he moved out six weeks ago. Anyway, I’m just trying to work out how to comfort them, because I can see they miss him, how to keep them calm with me and with each other, how to juggle all of this. Sorry this is more moan than an6hing else. Still. It’s so much easier than it was when their dad was here- in many ways much calmer and so much less stressful for me. Anyway, just wanted to say hello. Any tips appreciated. Thanks x
