Getting back with my exhusband

My exhusband and me are getting back together after 2 years of being divorced and living separate. We are looking for an apartment to share, that we will be moving to soon. How do I make this a smooth transition for the children? (they are 4 and 7) Honestly they will be stoked to have mommy and daddy under one roof again. We never told them we are dating, but I'm sure they kinda know because we are doing a lot as a family again (which they love). I know our divorce was a big transition for them, and they adapted, but I want to make sure reuniting our family goes smoothly.

Congratulations!

I don't have any advice . . . but I do want to caution you that with any change kids can have a tough time, even a "good" change.  Be patient with them and with yourselves. 

Good luck!  (Hopefully someone else has some good advice for you!)

Honestly, I would make dang sure that it was the real thing and that you are going to work out long term this time. It would be terrible on your children to start this again, and then have it fall apart again.

The only advice I have is to take it slowly. They could easily get crushed again if it doesn't work out. This isn't a game.

I just hope it all works out.  I'm sure the kids will be super happy but I agree with the first post....take it easy and understand that there could be an adjustment period.  Good luck to all of you!!  Keep us posted.  :)

Maybe a surprise party for the kids.
But make sure you go to marital counseling or some type of plan to nit have a separation repeat

I would wait until you've been together for longer than you've been divorced and have made it work well for a long time. Good luck.

Just take it slowly and talk to the kids. Ask them how they feel about Mommy and Daddy living in one house again. LIsten to their thoughts and respect their feelings. Good luck.
