Sorry but I have to agree that I don't think a gsd would be a good fit for you.
They are constant shedders, and if you have wood floors, well, they might get more than dust bunnies floating around, but lots of scratches.
These dogs are not couch potatoes, puppy or older, they need daily exercise, if they don't get it, they can be 'bears' to live with.
Having two kids under two, it will be like having TWO more with one puppy. ALso, don't want to discourage the 'rescue' route, but alot of rescues will not adopt out to people with toddlers..
Maybe a small non shedding breed of dog would be better suited to your situation
