Girls, Why did my ex do this?

We have been split up for nearly two years and I'm ok with it. We have children together, but we don't communicate and I haven't seen her physically for three months. When I send a message regarding the kids, she ignores me. The kids tell me that they cannot mention me because my ex becomes angry very quickly.
I saw my ex today, she walked past me. I looked up and she was smiling at me and actually waved hello, she continued to look at me whilst smiling and walked past.

I didn't expect this behaviour because we haven't spoken in three months. She could have just walked past me and ignored me, but she didn't.
