I also recommend what Jenna said. Tell the kids when they're with you so SHE doesn't have a chance to steal your thunder. Then tell her before they have a chance to. That way if it does cause her pain she has the chance to get her compusure before she has to deal with the children's excitement. Not quite the same thing, but my kids' mom will send messages through them and that just drives me crazy. They shouldn't be ever put in the middle like that.
