To get a shallow depth of field more easily, you could get the 50mm f/1.8 lens for about $220.

The D5100 is a good choice, and the 50 f/1.8 would certainly allow you to do selective focus. But for kids indoors, I'd go with the similarly-priced 35mm f/1.8 because the 50mm is kind of tight and you end up backing up into the wall.
