  • Lola & Lolo-- tagalog for grandma and grandpa. her great grandma is Lola Puti which translates to grandma white because her hair is as white as snow. We are a Filipino family. Although my children as well as myself & husband were born American, we want to keep as much of our culture and tradition alive for as long as possible. We primarily speak english in the home because it's easier for us, but would love for our kids to know their native language. It's harder than we expected since we don't speak tagalog all the time at home. But we're trying... baby steps. They're learning word by word.

  • My kids call my mil by her 1st name, and they call my dad Boppa, and my mom is Kitty Grandma (although the little one can't say that and he calls her me-yim).
