I find this interesting because my niece and nephew were raised to call my mom Mee Maw
That wasn't even an option for me. Now that my little brother has a daughter and a son on the way
these are things that they are having to decide on. Since we are wayyy past that time in our lives we now realize that it's not as big a deal as we might have once thought it was. Here are a few things I remember being an issue
back in the day:
boys- "The barn doors open"
After daughter :(In a southern scarlet voice) "The magnolia's are bloomin in the south"
(she loves this because NO one knows what we are talking about)
Do you need to go potty ?
(I still say this to them...it drives them crazy)
Kids name for you:
grandma & grandpa
Great grandma : GG
words at bedtime:
I love you
sleep with the angels
you can put it in your mouth now...or later
(used it for their bottle and it still stuck as a ritual)
we always stuck with the clinical words
(which I am not typing as to not accidentally end up on someone's search engine)
Funny words my kids said that took forever to correct :
Instead of magazine -mazagine
instead of bored - bird
instead of shampoo- chahm poo
those little toy figurines- peoples
Love to hear what you all say in your home:
the game doesn't start for another 45 minutes!
