I was just talking to my MIL. She called the house but I didnt pick up, i was on the other line. I told her im sorry i was on the phone wtih my nana. and she was like hun you are going to be 31 shes your grandmother. calling your grandparents nana and papa are childish. i let it go, not in the mood for a debate, but am i too old?
When i was younger, she named themselves nana and papa. She thought she was too young to be called grandma and too confusing for me. I had a lot of grandparents. I had my nana and papa. my nanas parents who i called grandma and grandpa, my papas parents who i called gramma jersey and grandpa jerssey, and my dads mom whoi called grandama del. so they all had little nicknames my nana and papa just happen to be the o nly ones still alive.
