    Default Re: Question for all of you about your grandparents

    ok- my side of this....
    my dad's side...no history as all passed on very early...
    my mom's side....Grandma, the only grandparent I met, although I met my dad's grandfather, but did not have a name for him.

    DH's side... Granddaddy and Grammie seemed to work for both sides

    Our DD said Grandma and Poppy for my parents, and Grammie and 'More Daddy" for Bill's parents- a funny story I need to scrap.

    Our older grandson calls up Granddad and Grandma

    now for the munchkin, who turned one on Saturday...we are just 'noise', LOL sometimes... I am "ah Gee Gee" with up stretched arms. Hoping the child speaks English one day.

    My grandchildren call me (memaw) and they call my husband (papa) they call their other sets of grandparents grandma and grandpa.
    I was very young when I had my first one, which my mother was very young to be a grandma (so she thought) she had my oldest call her G' (short for grandma) Marie (Gmarie) it was kind of a family joke. Till she was about 4-5 when I had my other two. Now Toni is 31 and call's my mom GMarie for giggles Ohhh and my grandchildren call my mom "The Queen" lol she refuses to be a great-grandma just yet.

    I answered this on FB, but I'll answer here too! I called my grandfather on my mom's side grandpa, but it comes out more like "grampaw," haha.

    (As a sidenote, Grandpa called ME mijita, which sounds like "meeHEEta" and literally translates to "my little daughter/girl.")

    My great-grandparents on my mom's side, I called them what sounds like "wiLEEto" and "wiLEEta," which is a slightly shortened version of saying the full Spanish words abuelito and abuelita (meaning little grandfather and little grandmother in Spanish. I don't know why it has little in there, but it just did lol).

    If this is for a kit, I'd love to see abuelo/abuelito and abuela/abuelita in there. ^_^

    He when my grand kids start arriving (years from now I hope!) ill have to remember Grams and Grumps lol!
    Grumps suits my husband perfectly!

    My mom we call Nanna
    And my grandma is Great Grandma
    My husbands grandmas are 'Gram' and 'Nan'
    My father in law is Pappy Joe (toms step dad)
    My other Father in law is Pappy Potts (Toms dad)

    Otherwise, except for my dad, everyone else is grandma 'first name'

    We had a tough time with grandparents when my son (now 18) was little.
    At the time the poor kid had like a dozen grandparents lol!

    My mom and dad
    My maternal grandmother
    My maternal great grandmother
    Toms mom
    Toms stepdad
    Toms dad
    Toms stepmom
    Toms maternal grandma
    Toms paternal grandma
    Toms stepmom's mom

    My dads mom we all called Mummum. She passed away a few weeks before I found out I was expecting Kyle, so my kids never got to know her
