just a quick relation question

I’ve been wondering this for a while, and the people I’ve asked were unclear. What relation am I to my cousin’s children?

You see, my cousin is pregnant with her second child (and the family is delighted!), but I don’t want to call her kids “my cousin’s kids.” So are they my second cousins, first cousins once removed, or some other distinction?

Your first cousin’s children are your first cousins, once removed. They are your children’s second cousins. Your kids are her first cousins, once removed. ( A generation removed, counting from the first common ancestor, in this case a grandparent.)


Ah, that clears everything up. Thanks!
