I have one granddaughter, 3. She stays the night at least once a week and goes out with me and pawpaw any chance we get to have her.

What does your grandchildren call you? I told my kids their children can call me anything but granny. I think of the Clampet's when I hear that name.

Hi Jayne, I am a grandmother. I have 1 grandchild and two on the way. It is going to be a busy summer around my house.

My granddaughter calls me Gramma or Mom. She often will even call me Karla if we are around other people saying my name. lol

My oldest called me by my first name because my husband always did. My mother was absolutely outraged over it. I thought it was kind of cute. Hubby started calling me Mom so eventually my son did too.

One of my friends has a 45 year old married daughter and 43 year old single son. Her daughter got married and had twins 18 months ago so don't give up.

Wow! How many children did you have? I have four and am hoping more than just my one son will have children. At 59 I thought I would have more grandchildren by now.

It's been years since I was here last, but I couldn't resist visiting and seeing this question, I just had to answer too.  I have 15 grands.  They range in years from 24 to 3 yrs of age.  They are busy to the point that we seldom have family get-togethers because it is just too much muchness. Wink

Wow! I've been trying to get Ivillage to let me in.  Let's see if this works.

I have 9 grandchildren all by one parent.  I never wanted to be a grandmother.  I love them all and wouldn't trade any of them in.  I never wanted to be called grandma so I have them call me what their mother called her grandmother-Grams.  The other grandmother is grandma and the other is Nanny.

If this works I'll try to post after many months of trying.
