What do/did you call your parents and what do your kids/grand kids call you?
The reason I'm asking is yesterday I was talking with some people and mentioned my Daddy. They were shocked that a 66 1/2 y/o woman would still call her father 'Daddy'. I can't ever remember calling him any other name (well after sons were born and they could talk he was NanDaddy to them and when they were little I did use that name for him with them - if I talk about him with them now he's Daddy). Different times my mother had different 'names' but Mom was the most enduring.
Daddy's dad was the only G-father alive when I was born and he was NanDad. NaMa Daddy's mother. Mom's mother was Nannie.
I'm Gram and Hubby is Grap. G-daughter's other granparents came up wanted to be called GrandMa and GrandPa so she came up with Gram and Grap for us - works great for us.
"Pet" names for other family members - Boys call my brother Uk Boo (Uncle Bill) that goes back to the time SOOO many years ago when they were little. ( I call him Toad Frog but don't remember when or why I started calling him that.)
