Call Me Mee Maw

No fancy grandma names for me

The women I know who have become grandmothers have been very creative in naming themselves anything but Grandma. It’s not just the women, actually. The guys I know have their own version of something that is more youthful, less foot-in-the-grave, too.

So while I do love the Gigis, Nonnas, G-moms, GrandBobs, Guses, Poppies and PopPops I know, I’m going the other way: MeeMaw.
