What if you “propose” to them that they be your step-sons officially? Hard to give ideas not knowing if they are 3 or 30 though 😉

Congrats!

How old are they?  This might give us a better idea of possible roles.

@Lauren416:  What if you take them out to movie and a dinner, give them a toy/special momento as a “ring”? A five year old might not quite understand there is a difference between you now and you as “stepmom”, so don’t be too disappointed if there isn’t a huge reaction to that part of the news!

When my dad proposed to my step-mom, I was 10 and my brother was 7. They had dated for a long time, my parents divorced very early, so we loved her very much and there was no chance of us being unhappy about the news. They took us for a dinner at Outback Steakhouse and the chef asked my brother and I if we would like a tour of the kitchen, and he let my brother “taste test” the macaroni with a spoon haha. Then we got back to the table, and they told us that they had some exciting news for us, that they were getting married and they hoped we would be as happy about it as they were. I was so happy that I slid under the table and cried haha. My brother stood on the booth seat and went “YEAH YEAH YEAH!” There weren’t any tokens or anything, just a great family dinner and that was plenty for us, it might work for you too!

We just sat down with my kids (they were the first to know about our engagement) and told them that we are getting married.  My 5 year old son said “Today?”  hahaha
