I will be a first time grandmother in July! I'm trying to decide on my title to be called.
Sadly, my daughter's husband's mother is already called Grandma (gramma) by her 3 other grandchildren.
I want to be identifiable by another name.
I called my own grandmothers, big grandma & little grandma, not flattering as it should've been tall & short. My cousin hates being called Grandma San Diego. My kids called my own mom plain,with honor, Grandma, since she was the real hands on and fun one. My husband's mom was Grandma Charlotte because they rarely saw her and she never changed a diaper or fed them, mostly she just watched them as interesting. I thought of GrandmaC (my name is Cathy) but the other one is Cheri, too close & same initial. My daughter doesn't want Nana or anything that's too different from Grandma.
I thought of SewGrandma, but that's probably kind of corny. However, I should ask my daughter about that one since it's kind of an honor if you think "SooooGrandma"!
So far the winner idea is Grandmom since my husband wants Grandad. I realize that Grandmom will actually sound like grandma by a toddler but maybe it could be Granmomma until older boyhood when he can actually say it right. Regardless if the momma ending is used or not, I will at least have a different signature.
What do you think of SewGrandma and Grandmom?
