    I would recommend using the Nikon 50mm/1.8 since you will be confined to indoor's shooting only and with F1.8, your flash will have a better coverage.

    Use the 18-55. The wide-angle will help with the group shots. The flash will help with ur exposure.

    personally, i find flashes very irritating to the subject.
    just use the 18-55 for group pics, etc.
    use the 50 1.8 for kids and other stuff.
    do as u see fit.
    no model answer.
