I was talking to my mommy over the weekend about what Young Foxy should call her. For those of you that know or have met my momma, she is hip and young and, well, quite Foxy herself. She hardly fits the bill of a typical grandmother.
Mommy informed me that she isn’t too fond of just being called “grandma.” Too her it’s a bit country and she is already aghast that her daughter is going to be raised Southern. I guess she assumed her grandchildren would always be raised as hip, progressive Northeastern children. I’m not sure why since we’re from the Midwest, but I digress.
She threw out the option of being called, simply, Grandmother. I told her I thought that was a bit stiff and impersonal. To me, it doesn’t at all sound warm and endearing.
So we are now in discussions for what Foxy will call my mother. The problem is that neither of us has any better ideas. That’s where you come in, favorite readers!
What do your children call their grandmothers? What did you call your grandmother? Ever heard of a cool name for a grandmother?
