I have 5 grandchildren–3 girls that include 8 year old twins, a creative music loving 6 year old, and 2 boys; one 5 and the other almost 2. When the twins were born, I had to make a decision on what grandmother name I wanted to be called. I though about calling myself Nana, Mimi, or maybe Gigi. But, I decided that I would be Gramma–sometimes called Gram for short. My oldest grandson first called me Moma and that was a good one (like the museum of modern art!!) but, once he turned 3, he started calling me Gramma.
So, that’s it. I am Gramma Karen. Maybe, when the kids get older I may shorten it to just Gram! But today I am called Gramma.
