As a flight attendant I feel compelled to set your straight on this one. Exit row rules mean that if you have a responsibility to anyone on the flight, you are ineligible to sit in the emergency exit row. IOW, you and your wife in the exit row with your kids in the row behind or in front of you, or seated somewhere else on the plane, is a no-go. To sit in the exit row, you must have nothing and no one else on the plane to worry about.
