    What do your grand children call you?
    We are Grand Ma.....aka Gammer.
    And Grand Pa..........aka Pa.
    Thats the way a 3 yr old sees it.

    My grandson calls me "Gran"

    When my son was born, my mom insisted that she and my dad were going to be "Grammie and Grampy"..... Well Alan Jr had a hard time with "Grampy".......It came out "Grumpy" and the name stuck.....and that was almost 8 years ago.

    "Gampaw and Gammaw" from our youngest, and Grandpa and Grandma from the other two.

    Of course, the 4-year-old is liable to add "You old grump..." when responding to a correction requiring a "Yes, Grandpa..."

    My older daughter asked me what I wanted my grandchildren to call me (several years from now, of course). I told her they can call me "Paw" like she does sometimes.

    No grandkids...but my daughter calls my mom "Mie-Mie".
    When she was really little...about 3, maybe...she heard me call my mom "Mom", so she did it too. I explained to her that my mom was "My mommy like I'm your mommy." ...and it came back as "My Mie-mie?" Then she just started calling her that...
    Now she's 17 and it's still "Mie-mie".

    I am waiting for my first to be born and I shudder to think about grandkids at this point. I think by the time my children are old enough to have their own kids I should be so senile that it won't matter what i'm called. Maybe "you old poop" or crazy old coot.
