  • My granddaughters call me Grandma, my husband Papa. They call my ex-husband Papi, and his wife Kiki (her name is Kristine, so that's short for it). They call my mom B, not sure why, it has nothing to do with her name, but they love it. They call my ex-MIL Noni, and their step-grandma's parents are Mimi and Pawpaw. I think that's everyone. LOL.
