Re: Too Young For "Grandma"

Our pastors kids call use papa for his dad and poppy for the other grandpa.
There Poppy is a missionary in Europe.

Bro. Sam,
I actually have a grandson that called me Bam-Maw. He's 16 now and
said to me one day, "Grandma, remember when I called you Bam-Maw".
He thought it was funny now that he is older. He's one of 15 fine GOD-Loving
grandsons. Ages 2-26.
As our grandchildren get older, it seems that most call us Grandma and Grandpa,
which is fine. At 70 and 72, we don't mind what they call us. Just so they call us.
We live near all except four and they are only about 30 minutes away. We love it.
The two yr. old grandson, the youngest of the 20, calls us MawMaw and PawPaw.
We love and enjoy our grandchildren very much! They love and respect us. They
were taught to do so. Makes for a wonderful relationship.

This would be even more perfect if you had a grand daughter named Heidi!

Re: Too Young For "Grandma"

Expecting my first grandchild in March and MY plan is to be called "Grandma" -- the baby may choose something else!

Re: Too Young For "Grandma"

Well, our kids have pulled a big joke on me and are saying they will call me Maw-Maw. I told my daughter, "NO, THEY WILL NOT CALL ME THAT!!" She laughed and said, "Oh, yes they will!" I was sooooooo furious and refused to cooperate, but now it's such a hoot, I don't really care. LOL!

You're welcome. The first part of the list came from the site below. There is also a list on this site of modern names for Grandma.
http://grandparents.about.com/od/adv...rannynames.htm

I edited the second list in order to remove duplicates and ones I thought were unpronounceable. Follow the link below for the complete list.

ETA....edited to add

Re: Too Young For "Grandma"

I am not going to be one, but I thought that Italian: Nonna was cute..

I wouldn't mind being called mamaw or nana either. I will probably be so happy I won't care.
