    What do you/your kids call them?

    What do you call your grandparents, or what do your kids call your parents?


    We refer to my mom and dad (when talking to DS) and Nana and Papa, and DH's mom and dad as Grandma and Poppop (Don't ask ).


    When I was younger my grandma's were always Old Nana and New Nana (My grandfather's both died before I was born).

    My grandparents were Grandma and Grandpa (Last Name). I noticed after he died that my grandfather often signed things "Granddad" but we never really called him that.

    My mom's parents were Nanny and Poppy and my dad's parents were Grandma Jody and Granddad Don.

    My nephew calls my dad Bumpa (don't ask 'cause I just don't know why) and I think he calls my step-mom Nana.

    all of my grandparents died over 5 years ago Most of DH's grandparents are still alive (his mom's dad passed last year).

    My mom's mom was Grandma. My dad's mom is Gigi (which might be short for Grandma Grace) and dad's dad is Grandpa. He wanted to be called Uncle Charles, but my parents begged to let us call him Grandpa since my mom's mom was already gone by then.

    The next generation in my mom's family called Grandma (their great-grandma) Nana.

    They were (they are dead now) grandma and grandma. My grandfathers both died before I met them, and my g-ma and g-ma were never, ever together because my parents families hated each other. So they were both just grandma.

    My kids will call my mom 'Elaine' because my mom will not want anyone to think she is a grandma Hell, I might have my own kids call me 'Allie' so people dont know I'm a mother

    I am only 40% kidding.

    We call the in laws nana and granky (Grampy is a crank pot =granky ). And myom is Grandma. ( haven't spoken to my father in 12+ years, he doesn't know I'm married or that Aidan exists). However, Aidan will ultimately decide what he calls them once he can talk.

    My parents are Mimi and Papa because (according to them) they are too young to be grandparents. MIL & FIL are just plain old Grandma and Grand dad.


    I call my grandparents Grammy, Pop-pop, Pap-pap, and Grammo.
