Just curious what your skids call your parents?  Do they call them by their first names or do they refer to them as their grandparents?

My skid never knew my parents. If they were still alive, I would ask him to call them Mr. and Mrs. last name. My are grown and they refer to their step grandparents by their first names. But this was at their invitation.

Bio & Skids call them all the same thing.

My mom is Nana to my kids (her choice - german heritage)

My uncle (god-father / only father figure) is Papa to both my kids.

MIL is Grandma D*** (firstname).

FIL is Papa S*** (lastname).

My DS calls his stepfather's dad "Grandpa Chuck" and his stepmom's parents are Meemaw and Papa.

My SDs  call my parents by their first names, but they didn't meet them until they were teens, so "Grandpa and Grandma" felt awkward for them.

Well, my parents have been in SD's life since she was 4 months old, so they are Me-Me (my dd started calling my mom that at 9 months and it stuck with SD who was 19 months at the time) and they call my stepdad grandpa. They both welcomes SD with open arms and treat her as if she were blood.
