  • Both my parents and DH's parents are grandma and grandpa for now. She's only 8 months so she has time to "name" them is she chooses.

    My grandparents are mommom and poppop and grammie and poppop. Mommom is the only original one out of those.

  • My dad is Papa. My mother in law is Gramma. My sister in law's first grandchild was born when she was 35 and she has always been called Gramma. She thought it was funny.

  • Well I'd find out what they'd like to be called, and if I agreed, then we'd settle on that. On the other (bitchy) hand, you could always say that if they don't want to be called a grandparent, then they won't be treated like one.
