I have always thought that my children would call their grandparents grandma (name) and grandpa (name). Now that I live in the south I hear a lot of Granny and Nanny and I hate that! I remember talking with my husband about what the grandparents would be called with our first pregnancy a few years ago which resulted in a miscarriage. He didn't really say much which tells me he didn't really think much about it one way or the other. My MIL is now called Nanny by her husbands grandchildren and wants to be called that by all of the grandchildren. I know it's probably more about me than my daughter because she doesn't know any difference. Do I just grin and bear it and call her that even though it makes my skin crawl?
