If your a stepmonster....

When people ask you how many children you have what do you say? If your stepchildren don't live with you do you include them? My step son lives 3 hrs. away and we don't see him much. When people ask me how many kids I have I usually say 2. If the conversation goes further I will mention that I have a stepson too. 

What about you?

All of my kids are "my" kids! We have 5 boys. My son, his two sons, our son and his brother. They are all ours! I even refer to my stepsons as our kids when I'm talking to their mother! LOL.

I will have to say that my stepsons have been in my life since they were not quite 1 and 2. They are almost 11 and 12 now. It did take some time for the bio and step parents to "get along" as well as we do now!

I don't include them because they want nothing to do with us unless it's money and they're grown.

I don't know, I am stuck on that one. It would be different if they lived with me, and I played mom. But I don't. They live an hour away, and visit a couple weekends a month. I never pretended to be or acted like their mom, they have a very good mom and I am not trying to take her place. Realize they are also 16 and 20 right now, not little kids. So, IDK. I feel like I am lying to people if I say 4, but I don't want to exclude them by saying 2.
