We call both sets Grandma and Grandpa. If we need to differentiate, we call one set Grandma and Grandpa G...(our last name) and the others we call Grandpa Rich and Grandma Joan. The one set doesn't like to use their first names, but my parents do.

DD calls my mom and dad Mema and Pepa and DH's parents Grandma and Grandpa. We will probably stick with that unless this baby comes up wtih their own names like DD did !

Good question. I have no idea!! My ss calls my mom Grandma Cheryl and my dad by his first name. That won't happen for this baby. SS calls DH's parents Grandma and Pop Pops, so we will probably keep that for them. Just have to determine what my parents want to be called. I'm leaving it up to them.

My parents are Nana and Papa and my DH parents are grandma and grandpa. When my DD was born she claimed Nana cause she said she was too young to be grandma, lol.

My Mum is "Mongy" (I know, DD did it all on her own and we found it so funny, it's now stuck!) and my Dad is Pa, the out-laws are Oma (DD says Ami) and Opa. I am sure this baby will use the same names

My mom is giving in to me and says it's okay if my kid calls her grandma. I've been fighting her on this for a while now. She thinks grandma sounds too old and prefers nana. But I hate the name nana. Nana is the woman at the daycare me and my middle sister went to for a while, it's not a term for a grandparents in my eyes.

I told my mom grandma is a title of honor, lol. I mean, really, both my grandmas are/were awesome and I don't understand why my mom wouldn't love to have that title. But she now says okay if that's what I want my baby to call her, then that's what it'll be.

I will NOT teach my kid to call my mom's husband Papa Thor (yes, his name is Thor). I don't want to be associated to him like that. I put up with him because somehow he makes my mom happy. So my child won't learn from me the name Papa Thor. I'll just keep calling him Thor. It's the only thing I can think of that won't be disrespectful. He is not my kid's granddad.

And, unfortunately, my kid will most likely call my granddaddy, Papa cause for some reason my sister and everyone in NC decided to give him a different name. I don't quite understand the different name for each grandparent. All my granddaddies were granddaddy, we just used their last or first name when talking about them, same for my grandmas. And now my granddaddy calls himself papa, even in cards to me and it makes me angry and sad.

My dad will be granddaddy, though I'm struggling with feeling so nice to him. My niece calls him by his first name because he's never around.
