First day away from my twins. Suggestions?

My SIL is coming over tomorrow to watch my 8m old twins for the day. I have never been away from them during the day, only at night, and am feeling nervous for her already.

I am in the process of making nap/feeding tables and lists for her but what are some things that would be important to include.

  • Diaper changes? Bath times (if you bathe them during the day)? I honestly can't think of anything else besides those two, so sorry if I'm not much help!

  • I was the same way with my DD. My MIL would always offer to come over to help and I was always a nervous wreck. I'd run around town as fast as I could getting everything done in under an hour. When I"d get home frazzled and run-down, my DD would be sleeping peacefully. I worried for no reason!

  • How to comfort them - especially if each twin likes something different!
