and possibly never will but as i now have lots of friends who are grandparents it’s just a natural interest…kind of like proms for 18 year olds, weddings for 20 somethings and babies for 30 somethings. you talk about it whether you are participating or not!
so, i had a little chuckle reading this article…
No name is too goofy when “Grandpa” or “Grandma” just won’t do.
Apparently, we’re a generation of grown-up teenagers who can’t get over ourselves. There’s even a website—Grandparents.com—that offers alternative names for those not ready to embrace the traditional honorific.
Some of the sillier options for grandmothers: MeeMee, MeMe, Big Mama, Bigger Mama, Nother-Mother, and GeezerGirl. Grandfathers can opt for Papadaddy, Mellowman, Puggles, Grindiddy, and Geezer Guy.
it got slightly uncomfortable when i checked out grandparents.com. they have a list of traditional, trendy etc suggestions.
can’t even imagine what i would pick, want to be called if and when i do get there~~but i’m sure some of my readers will be more than happy to leave comments!!
disclaimer: i’m not implying in anyway that i want to be a grandma or that i’m sitting on the edge of my seat waiting for one of my kids to make me one…it’s just funny stuff!
