A Grandma By Any Other Name...

Some ladies have to be dragged into Grandma-land kicking and screaming; hanging on to their ungrandmaness with fake nails embedded with jewels and digging in with their 5"spikey heals.

Some try to carve away their grandma status.


Some just object to the name "Grandma" and come up with their own creative monikers.


Ethel prefers to be called  "Zoom Zoom"



Alberta is partial to NFL, short for "Nasty Female Locks"


Suzette likes to be called "Saucy MeeMaw"



Tammy is going to insist on the name "Lola"



Sheldean had dubs on "Poppers" so Wildean had to settle for "Poppie" and Verdean got stuck with "Popsie".  
Ashley just wished she could be in another family



When Shirley decided she wanted to be called "Nonnie Hottie",
Leonard instantly approved



Nastia looked forward to the grandkids calling her either 
"Caw Caw" or "Meow Meow"



Me?  I'll take "Grandma Rainy"

Oh Grandma Rainy looks so happy holding that sweet little bundle of perfectness. Leonard is a creep, I don't know him personally, I'm just sayin..

The Bipolar Diva said...

Jen West said...

Congrats Grandma Rainy :)

Ryan said...

So you won't be shaving a Mohawk into your head and calling yourself granny ramone then?

Marti said...

Congratulations! She's a sweetie.

I hope Ms. Pris. takes that mask off after Halloween.

DebbieLP said...

Do you think, possibly, that Priscilla's had some 'work' done?

Congratulations--love the photo of you & your new grandbaby!

just call me jo said...

You have a dandy pink bundle. My bundles are all three blue. I'm Grandma Jo. Whatever you call us, I think it's pretty special.

Cutest Grandma Rainy ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!

What a lovely surprise after all those preceding chuckles! You look like a perfect grandma and your little darling is beautiful. I'm itching for grandma status, but so far the best I've managed are a couple of grand-cats, grand-dogs and a grand-rat (Lord help me). I suppose I need to quit worrying about a grand-kid with opposable thumbs and pray that they all get married first. :P Love the post, as always. You crack me up!

Sue said...

Aw, cute picture. And I love Grandma Rainy! I wish I had thought of something more original for my "moniker." Grandma Anderson is kinda boring, but it's hard to get something else started after the fact...

P.S. Zoom zoom would be good, but I don't have any roller skates.

Missy said...

Such a lovely Grandma Rainy but not as perfect as that baby. Congrats.

Oregon Gifts of Comfort and Joy said...

Laurel said...

Grandma Rainy,
You look like such a natural holding the little one. She's a beauty!

hiphousegirl said...

Aww congrats Grandma Rainy. Very very cute.

But I see that anchor tattoo burnin' right on through that sleeve!

cindy said...

I have to admit to the fake nails...but it makes it easier to pick at the sticky, drippy, icky things that sweet baby will someday start sprouting all over her body:)

Cherie said...

Ohhhh Beautiful picture of you and your granddaughter!

Rachael Jill said...

Grandma Rainy! That photo makes me so jealous

Pondside said...

Wow! Isn't it the greatest? Congratulations!
