|You could start by looking at it differently.
General Rule: Tell what you WERE doing, as gracefully as possible--rather than leave a gap.
If you were doing anything valuable (even if unpaid) during those so-called "gaps" you could just insert THAT into the work-history section of your resume to fill the hole. Here are some examples:
- 1993-95 Full-time parent -- or
- 1992-94 Maternity leave and family management -- or
- Travel and study -- or Full-time student -- or
- Parenting plus community service
