  • My mom prefers to be called Nana.... If my daughter called her granny I'm afraid she would have a heart attack haha It's also nice because she a few other 'grandmas' and it makes my mom feel special... and lets face it not so old.

  • My nephews and niece call my mom wemaw cause she is fun and my grandma to them is applesauce because she always gives them applesauce. You can go for mawmaw, or a nickname you all agree on.

  • my question to you is why aren't you proud of being called grandma...people will be shocked and amazed at how young you are-- just think of all the attention! Embrace it! Don't be ashamed of it.
