by kris1911 on August 28, 2011

One of the proudest moments in a woman’s life is the day she becomes a grandmother….one of the proudest moments in a man’s life is the day he teaches his grandson to play his favorite sport! The immense joy and happiness that comes from being a grandparent is indescribable and if you ask a grandparent, they for sure will fall short on words to describe the “magic” called grandchildren!!!

Well then, those days have long gone by when grandchildren called their grandparents by traditional sounding grandparent names like: Grandmother, Granny, Mammaw, Grandfather, Grandpa, or Gramps. Families have been inventive and have experimented a little with more “modern” sounding grandparent names….names that sound more fun, cleverer & definitely more youthful!!!
