What kind of role would you like her to have in your kids life?

Purely HYPOTHETICAL. For those of you that don't know what that means...

It is like "what if They were getting a step-mom?"

I'm sure we will still the responses such as, "This will never happen to me." or "My kids don't/won't ever have one." LOL!. 

WHAT IF?

I wish she didn't exist, but since she does - she doesn't play any role in my son's life, because I won't allow his father in his life.

She would be a mother figure to my kids. She would have some what of a say in how they were raised, I would want her to be involved. I would become friends with her even if I didnt like her.

i would just want her to love them and be there for them. I want them to like her and respect her. I want her to be their friend. 

What I don't want is for her to think that she is going to take over and change the schedule or change the way we do things. I don't care about her opinion but I will respect her as long as she respects my children. I would have no problem with her picking the kids up or dropping them off as long as it was drama free. 

I trust that my ex will pick a good woman to marry. He has a good track record ;)

My son would never have one. There really are no what ifs. For the sake of this post I'd at least want her to be involved but I would never want her to actually be a mom to him.

She'd be exactly who she is. My ds has a step mother, and she's everything he and I could want in a step mom. She's loving, caring, accepting of my ds, she's just as involved in ds life as his father and myself are. I take her concerns into consideration, she doesn't overstep any boundaries, and th boundaries were never set, they're unspoken, but she still respects them. Honestly, I'm glad she is a part of my ds life.

I'd rather not have to deal with one period but it's possible. I really don't want her playing any role. I want her to stay in her lane as his Wife and  be respectful to my kids and leave everything else up to me and my Ex.
