David and I have been talking about this lately and I’m curious to hear what other people do.
What do you call your mother? What do you call your grandmother? What do you have your children call you?
Whenever I talk to Peanut, I always refer to myself as “mama”. I’m not sure why since I did not grow up with this terminology. I have noticed among my southern blogging friends that using the term “mama” is very common, even for adult children.
When I was growing up, we called our grandmothers by their last names such as Grandma Smith or Grandma Brown. I don’t know, but that seems kind of formal to me now that I think about Peanut calling her grandmothers and grandfathers by those names.
So, I’m curious to hear what other people do and how it probably varies regionally and culturally. I’m looking for inspiration! 🙂
