When the babies start talking, they will call them whatever they want. My two ss call the same person different things. The older calls her grandma and the younger calls So it gets a little confusing.
My MIL became a grandma at a young age and was perfectly happy being called grandma.
My step mom went with "Mimi"
(Although for some reason she spells it "Meme" wth?)
My daughter calls my mom "Nana"
Mee-mee for my mom, and Avo (vaaa-VOE) for DH's mom. Portuguese for grandmother I guess.
I didn't think DD would catch on to all the different names so quickly but they do..so be prepared and start calling them by their chosen grandparent names early on!!
Mrs.Boeck:My stepmom is only 36... gonna be 37 next week. She thinks she's too young to be called grandma, so we gotta find a grandma alternative for the young ladies! HELP!
My mom goes by GiGi ... her name is Angela "Angie" but she didn't want to be called Granny ... which worked out b/c DD calls my grandmother Granny - like we all do .. so it isn't confusing & works out
EEEEE GADS! I am older than some of the grandmas listed. My kids named my dad PomPom for som reason. It stuck until they were about 4.
From the posts above I liked GiGi and I bet MiMi would be good too. I didn't see MiMi but I just scanned them - so maybe I missed it - probablydueto the shock of being so relatively old .
