My parents are divorced and remarried so my kids have two sets of grandparents on my side. My mom/stepdad are Gigi and Papa (pronounced paw-puh). My dad/stepmom are Gigi Dawn and Grandpa Kenny (or just Grandpa).

DF's mom overdosed and died before any of the kids were born and his dad has neer been in the picture. His grandparents are more like his parents and we called them Granny and PawPaw when they were alive.

Since my parents are remarried, I have lots of grandparents: Nanny and Papa, Grams, Meme and PawPaw, Gran and Big Daddy

DD calls Dh parents mamaw & papaw...apparently it is an Ohio thing, they are from Ohio.
DD calls my parents grandma and papa

I called my grandparents grandma & grandpa on both sides except my step grandma on my dads side I called her Peg growing up. When I got older I called my moms mom nana Rosie or gma. I now sometimes call my step grandma just grandma.

My grandparents were Nana and Papa, and Mama and Poppy.

My parents are now Nana and Papa, and hubby's parents are Grandma and Papa (but they pronounce it PawPaw.) It's annoying because his family sometimes pronounces it Papa, so my son is getting confused. It'll stay annoying until he's old enough to say the difference....or just treat it like anyone else with the same name. *sigh*

What will your little one call his/her grandparents?

My parents are Grammy & Papa (chosen by my parents, Connor was their first) and DH's parents are Mimi & Grandaddy (chosen before Connor was here, they are raising a grandkid)


What did/do you call yours? Grandma & Grandpa, but apparently that's not cool enough these days! LOL

My parents are Grammy and Pops. DH's parents are Grandma Lu and Grandpa Tony. I hate that they use first names. It feels so impersonal so me. We refer to them as Grandma and Grandpa but with everyone else using the names, she's starting to pick that up. (DH doesn't care for the use of the names either, but his 20 year old nephew determined he names long ago.)

DD has three grandparents still living: Pappy (my mom's dad), Mommom (my day's mom), and Nana (DH's dad's mom). She never met Pappap (my dad's dad), she adored Nanny (my mom's mom) who passed away in November, and saw Papaw (DH's dad's dad) every time we visited GA, but he passed away last week. Lots of different names around here and she knows who they all are.

DD calls my mom Gamma and my dad Grandpa and my step-mom Grandma or Grandma Debbie.

SO's parents don't have any grandkids yet (Aidan is the first).

I always called both of my grandmas Grandma. Never met my parents' dads.

DD calls my mom Gumma and my dad Papa(pronounced pawpaw)
DHs adoptive parents are both deceased (lung cancer...smoking is bad!)
DHs birth mom weve only seen once but refer to her as grandma

I called my Grandparents Grandma and Grandpa. I had two grandmas and only one grandpa growing up and if i was talking to someone else about my grandmas I used last name to differentiate. But as a young child I called my grandpa Boppa until i was about 8 and decided it was babyish. And picked it back up shortly before he passed away. (Both of my biological grandpas died before i was born when my parents were young) But my grandpa raised my mom and aunts and treated all us grandkids like his own. Most wonderful man ever and I miss him everyday.

Both DH and my parents are divorced and remarried, so our kids have twice as many grandparents.

Grandma Suzie and Larry - DH's mom and her boyfriend/partner/whatever
Grandma Suzanne and Grandpa Keith - DH's dad and (wicked) step-mother
Grandma and Granddad - My mom and step-dad
Nana and Pop-pop, or Nan and Pop - My dad and step-mum

She also has a few great grandparents, and she just calls them the same thing as we do - DH's grandmother is Gramma, and my grandmother is Grandmum.

My kids call my parents grandma and papa. We don't really speak to kyles side of the family but we refer to them as grandma and grandpa.

My moms parents were grandma and papa. My dads dad passed away before I was born so I just refer to him as Ralph or dads dad. And his mom was grandma. I do not have anymore living grandparents.

Ya-Ya and Dad-dad are my parents. My niece came up with Ya-Ya somehow around 18 months and Lily couldn't say granddad so it came out Dad-dad

My MIL is Granny. DH's father passed away before kids and we don't keep in touch with his stepmom. I don't think the kids have ever met her before.

My mom's parents were Grandma and Granddaddy. My grandmother passed away right after my niece was born and I had just found out I was pregnant with Lily. The girls called my grandfather Great-Granddaddy. He passed away last year.

My dad's parents are Grandma and Grandpa. They live halfway across the country and don't travel, so they've only met Lily once as a toddler.

Well Drake calls my FIL Pop Pop and my MIL Grandma so Im sure thatll be the same for all the kids. My mom is the Chinese word for grandma Pao Pao. My father passed away so or he would have been Gong Gong

I called my grandparents the Chinese equivalents. My dad's mom is Ni Ni and she is still alive. My dad's dad was Eiee Eiee but he passed away a bit ago. My mom's mom was Pao Pao and I never had a Gong Gong because my mom's dad died when she was in high school

My dad was Papa before he died and my step mom is Nana, but sometimes the boys just call her Sheri.
We refer to my mom as Grandma Laura (Isaac hasn't seen her since he was a baby and she never met Gabe before she died)
DH's dad and step mom we refer to as Grandpa Bill and Grandma Meghan (they never call or try to make a short trip out here)
DH's mom and step dad have always been Grandma and Grandpa.

I've always called both sets of my grandparents Grandma and Grandpa. Sometimes I call my dad's parents Ma and Pa. The boys call them Grandma Joy and Grandpa Don. My mom's mom is Grandma Marge. When we talk to DH's grandma on the phone we call her Grandma Kathy (we almost never see her)
