So! If your parents and grandparents are still with you (and your SO's of course), what will they want to be called when the new baby arrives? If you/they are BTDT, what do you and the kids call them?

My mom is still thinking it over. She thinks she's too young for "Granny" which was what her grandmother was called (she was this tiny little lady all shriveled up, totally a granny ). I think she'll go with MomMom. My dad hasn't decided yet either. I think he'll go with PopPop or Granddad. DH's parents are already Nana and PopPop b/c they have 2 grandchildren already.

I'm not really sure yet...his parents are already grandma and grandpa, so we will probably stick with that. My mom will probably Grandma JuJu (her name is Judy, and little kids all call her JuJu). Not sure about my dad.

My mom is Nonna and my dad is Nonno. My grandmother in France is the only grandparent left on my side. I call her MeMe.
David's parents want to be called Nanny and Poppa and all of his grandparents are deceased.

My mom is Gigi and my dad is Papaw. DH's parents are just grandma and grandpa, they are very serious and thought my mom was crazy when she asked what they would want to be called. My MIL said she had never heard of any nicknames for grandparents besides Grandma and Grandpa, and thought it was odd that I called both my grandpa's "Pappy." I called one grandma Mimi and one grandma Mam. That is what my kids call them as well, but they really only see my Mimi regularly.

My ILs are just grandma and grandpa.

My mom is Nonna (Italian) (although my kids pronounce it Nah-nah) and my dad is Ricky---lol.

My grandparents are Memere (French) and Pop Pop.

Both our parents are Grammy and Grampy.

We called my grandparents Memom and Poppop. My other side was Grandma and Granddad.

My mom is Oma and even though my dad is deceased my kids still call him Opa. My grandma is Grandma and my kids call her that too. My outlaws are Granny and PapPap-- that was before my time with my husband's 1st daughter.

My parents are Grandma and Grandpa to all their grandkids.
My brothers in-laws go by MeeMaw and BumBum--although as the kids have gotten older I haven't heard them refer to them much by those names--usually it is"my other grandma and grandpa."
My daughter refers to DH's parents as her Grandma and Grandpa that are in heaven. DH heard that for the first time last night and was a little surprised by that.

My mom and dad are 'ammachi' and 'thaatha' to my DD. And DH's parents are 'Paati and thaatha' She differentiates by referring to my DH's dad as Trichy thaatha when in third person - Trichy is the name of the place they live in She has met my grandma twice & my late grandpa once and DH's grandpa once. And she was too young then to call them anything. We refer to my grandma to her as 'Kollu ammachi' (great grandma)

my fiance's mom has the grandkids call her "mam-mum" which I think sounds stupid.

my grandma's growing up were grammy (last name) and grammy (last name).

my stepsiblings grandparents were Nana and Pappa which I also thought sounded stupid.

My mom doesn't really have a preference, I think I'll just let the kid name her what it wants, and she'll introduce herself as whatever she wants. but it's NOT going to be nana or mamum because those names sound like nails on a chalkboard to me.

my fiance's dad and my dad are both deceased, and i'd prefer my kid have little contact with my stepfather, so he'll be whatever also. but not pappa.

Huh, I don't think my son calling his great grandma Nana "sounds stupid".
