Are you a grandma?

What do your grandkids call you? Is there a story behind your name? Would you care to tell it?

  • Yep! My five year old granddaughter Libby calls me " Cowgirl Grandma", a name she bestowed upon me herself, because of the fact that "Grandma wears cowgirl boots and rides her horses." She's got all my (step) grandkids calling me this, too!!

  • I am only 32 so having a step-grandchild is kind of weird. My neices called me Na-Na (sounds like in taunting) because they couldn't say my name so we decieded she could call me that.

  • My great grandma used to live next to a cow farm and we called her grandma cows. There's a pig farm next to her old house now! Good thing it was now and not then!

  • I have 4 biological grandkids ranging in ages from 4 1/2 down to 11 months. I was supposed to be Nana like my mom was called by my kids but Chubby my oldest grandson has called me Ganma since he was 15 months so it's stuck.
