Every other year, Suzanne's grandchildren come up from Florida for the Christmas holiday. The years they are here are Christmases we look forward to. The in between years are kind of flat.

There's nothing like having little ones around.

Maybe we can start a new contest, like Name that Babe? I bet we could come up with some dandy names. :)

I already suggested Andrew Charles (that's me) and Andrea Charlene (feminine version of the name). I've been informed neither are in the running. (thankfully)

I'm not even sure "Grampy Andy" will stick. That's the name my "adopted" grandchildren gave me.

Andy,
When I had my first son, when he started talking, he could not say grandpa, so my father became Bompa, to this day all four kids and even little Cade still say Bompa when talking about him. Cade would not say or call me gamma, I became Ma my DH is Pa now Ethan, and Carson call us Ma and Pa, we feel like ma and pa kettle but we love it. So you see, you can choose a name but the kid is gonna name you himself

My point exactly. It really doesn't matter what they call me (within reason) as long as they call me.

Congratulations, Andy. Teach little sweetie pie how to cook like you do, too, OK?

I agree with kadesma about the kid naming you. My daughter calls my MIL Hi-Mom, as we all do now.

She overheard us talking to her on the phone every Saturday morning when she was little ("Hi, mom"), so that's what she thought her name was.

I hope to, mudbug.

My daughter won't be teaching much. She doesn't care to cook at all. I saw a sign in a card shop that fits her: "The only reason my home has a kitchen, is because it was there when I bought it."
