Laura went to the doctor today and everything went great!  Laura was taking to my Dad and she said “Goodbye, Pop-Pop, Poppie, Grandpop, Pop, Grandfather, or whatever you want to be called”.  My dad busts out with “Popeye, I want to be called Popeye!”  LOL  So my Dad is now offically “Popeye”!  How cute is that!  It totally fits his crazy self!  I love it.  I was talking to Pete about what his parents will be when we have kids.  He said his dad will most likely be “Grandpop”.  I picture his dad as a “Gramps” and his Mom as a “Grammy”.  My Mom used to tell me she wanted to be called “GrandMaMa”!  What did/do you call your Grandparents, how about your kids?

    Hi Lisa! I use to call my grandparents by “Granny” and their last name or “Grampa” and their last name. I don’t know why, that’s just the way we use to do it. As for my mom, her nickname is “Bunny” given to her by my dad. So, my kids call her Granny Buns. She has over 25 grandkids and they’ve shortenend it to “G-Bun” and now a few of the older grandkids are calling her “G-String” and she just laughs her butt off! Anyway, I’m off to watch a movie, you have an AWESOME 4th of July!!!

    I love Popeye! Soooo cute! I have Nanny & Pappy, Grandmommy & Grandaddy. Mom & Hale are Papa & Gigi- which I think is cute. But Popeye takes the cake!

    LOL. Aww that is too cute.

    I called my mom’s parents grandfather and grand mommy Rose. My dad’s mom was grandmama.

    Popeye! That’s awesome. I didn’t get to meet my grandmothers (well, I don’t remember the one and the other died when my dad was a teen) and I didn’t see my grandfathers very often. We referred to them, though, as Grandpa (Last Name) and Grandma (Last Name).
