    Default Question for all of you about your grandparents

    What do you call your grandparents (or what do your kids call your parents)?

    My boys call my mom "Ma" and my dad is "Papa". My in-laws are Grandma Hazel and Grandpa Lowell. I am Mom or Mommy and my mom is "Ma". It's kinda funny because it really throws people off when they hear my kids calling her "Ma". But that is what my dad calls her and all of us kids do too, so it stuck with my boys too.

    Here's a little story I just have to share. My mom and my oldest son were shopping when my son was about 3 or 4. My mom told my son to pick out a toy tractor and she would buy it for him. The store clerk said to my son "Wow, you are lucky to have such a nice Mom!"
    My son replied, "That's not my Mom! It's my Ma!"
    The clerk looked at my mom funny and my Mom had to explain that she was his grandma and he calls her "Ma".

    Default Re: Question for all of you about your grandparents

    My 10 year old calls my in-laws big grammy and big grampy (even though they are not big lol) and he calls my parents other grammy and grampy.

    My 8 year old refers to my inlaws as 443 and my parents as 442 because that is the beginning of their phone numbers and that stuck with him but when he is actually at their home it is grammy and boomie and the same for my parents when he is at their house.

    I didn't want to have to use last names to distinguish grandparents by. So, my parents (who live a block away) are Grandma and Grandpa. Ryan's parents are Mam Maw and Pap Paw.

    Okay, this is a bit funny sounding , my Jewish side.

    In our family my mothers side were Zadie and Bobi, [Zadie is Grandpa and Bobi is Grandma], and on my fathers side it was Grandpa and Grandma. This was so we wouldn't mix up with the two pairs. These days it's just Grandma+name and Grandpa+name.

    But the Zadie and Bobi sure stuck to my kids!

    Hmm...I'm from the Philippines, so it's all completely different. The kids call my mom--Nanay--which actually means mother. My dad is Tatay--which means father. Trish, I live super close to my parents, too....2 houses down the street! There is only one house in between us, lol! I love it!!

    But they also call other grandparents Lolo and Lola (grandpa and grandma) these are the traditional Filipino names for grandparents.
