No problem.Im sure all will go great your kids may fight but that only means that they are getting more comfortable and settled LOL.Just make sure you ask them all separately after you've been living together for a while if they feel comfortable and if there's anything you can do to help the feel comfortable.Good luck

Maybe go out on a few family outings together to bond also you could have a few "sleep overs" it gives the children a chance to get yous to life as a branded family before they actually have to live together.Make it a fun thing with lollies and a movie have lots of laugh make it a friendly fun environment where the kids can feel safe.As the kids are all close in age I believe it will run smoothly it may be rocky at first but when everyone gets you to new life (all changes have a breaking in period) it will be great I'm sure.



Also re I force family rules! You and your partner can make them up together and tell all the kids these are the rules we all have to follow that way it makes everything fair and even and safe!



Good luck I'm sure it will go great congratulations also!
