was stunned to read sooo many comments to the question, " what should my step grandchildren call me? "... i am so stunned at so many strange answers... in a world growing colder by the day, any chance to receive love and warm family relationships for children should be jumped at. my sisters grandmom (from my moms FIRST marriage) Always referred to me as her granddaughter and i felt incredibly loved. when an adult crosses the blood barrier to hold a child close to their heart it should be warmly welcomed. if it is an adult that is "flakey" than let the child know the flakey grandparent isn't really a blood relative and has issues but accept any love from them they give with caution they might not be there one day. I am so excited, my daughter married a man with 9 children.. and my heart grew bigger instantly. as i get to know each child, they get added to the christmas and birthday list and get calls of merry wishing too.
isn't it an HONOR for someone to open their heart to your child when they really don't have too.. and in all fairness i think its a MUST that step grandparents do this.. and embrace the roll completely and wholeheartedly, as if the step grandchild were their own.
