So, I am going to be a grandparent in March, 2011.

The question has been asked… what do you want to be called?  I had not really given it much thought but now that the question has been asked, I have been trying to decide on the ‘right’ grandparent name for me!

Grandma, Gramma, Nana, Grannie, Oma, Grandmere, Gram, Mimi… you can also use Google to get a long list that includes other languages.  There is even a ‘what kind of grandmother are you’ quiz.  I took that one…. just because I wanted to know and it turns out that I am the ‘traditional’ grandmother type (whatever that means).  I sure don’t feel traditional most of the time.

So, I am going to throw it out there….what is the ‘right’ grandmother name for me?  What do you think?

No matter what I come up with or decide on, I know that our newest addition to our family will decide in their own time what I am to be called.

Isaiah 43:1 … I have called you by name, you are mine.

    Our Grandchildren came up with their own ideas. The first time of hearing them call for you is precious.
