How old are your kids? And why on God's green Earth would your ex-husband want to be there? Are you going to invite (or allow) him to join you?

Oh wow -your ex is going to be there as well--that will be very interesting. . . . Hope all goes well--I too believe in--I don't introduce anyone to my children unless it is someone who is going to be in my future ---so that the kids don't get attached--etc. For my situation this has worked out great--& I've been with my BF since September--& he didn't get to meet the kids for @ least 2-3 months-- Good luck--I'm sure all is going to go smoothly!! :)

Each situation is different..some kids warm up faster then others. But for me I never bring anyone around unless I know he's someone I can have a future with. The last thing you want is to have your kids get attached and then have things not work out with the bf. But just take it slow..when the times right you'll know :) good luck!

hi there, how are u going? i dont think there is a best way to do its a big step for all of u. The big thing is to make sure your boyfriend is ready to meet your children and that you try to explain your hardest to your kids what is going on more so for the older ones but just take it one day at a time maybe get him over for dinner with your kids slow interduce them to him over time instead of rushing them into it and to let them get use to them having him around as well. Anyway i hope that helped in some way. Let me know how it all gose. xoxox
