  • My mom's parents were Grandma and Grandpa and my dad's parents are Granny and Punkin. My oldest cousin called him a punkin-head once (sunburned bald head with red hair fringe) and the name just stuck.

  • I call my mom's mom Mamaw. I don't remember her dad, he passed when I was around 3 or so.
    I call my dad's parents Mamaw Sandie and Papaw. I still talk to dad's parents at least once every week or two and see mom's mom about 2-3 times a month. :-) Very Lucky!
