How do you refer to your ex-husbands sibling's kids? I know you can just say DS or DD's cousins, but is it weird to still refer to them as your nieces and nephews? I don't really think it is.

Well, my husband passed away a few years ago so the situation is a little different, but I still refer to them as my nieces and nephews.

Nope. I divorced two yrs ago and still call then my niece and nephew, and they still call me Aunt Amey. Bc I am still very close to them and their mom. Not about to try to explain to a one and two yr old that I am no longer their aunt by,marriage. In my heart, I still am.

My parents still call my cousins their nieces and nephews and my cousins still call them their aunt/uncles and they've been divored for about 13 years.

 Did you include the nieces and nephews in the divorce decree?

I still refer to my ex's niece and nephew as mine. However his sister tells them I'm still their Aunt. So no not weird.

I still refer to them as my nieces and nephew, and they're still a very big part of my life.  They also have a great bond w/ my children that are not related to them (they're only DS1's cousins).  My other kids also refer to their mom as "Auntie".
