Do you talk about Your Children on a First Date?

Hi, I’m a single mom and I always want to be open and honest on a first date, but I also don't want to scare my date off by talking about my kids too much. I don’t even know if it’s okay to mention that I have kids on the first date. Whenever I go on a date I often struggle with what to say (and how much to say) about my children, especially on a first date. On one hand, I want to give my date a chance to get to know me as an individual; on the other hand, my children are an important part of my life and I feel it’s important that my date knows that I’m a single mom from the onset. What do you think? Is it okay to talk about my kids on a first date or do I wait until we get to know each other a bit?
