Grandparents

I have written before about lives taking different stages. My husband and I are entering a new stage as we prepare to be grandparents for the first time. The gammet of emotions that we felt when we were first told -- from we're too young, to worry for our daughter, to excitement.

We had talked about being grandparents, yet had thought we had years to go before that thought became a reality. But as the days pass since being told, our excitement grows. My husband has decided he is too young for the title grandpa, and has researched names to be called, finally deciding upon Lolo. As for myself, I have looked, but haven't decided on what I would want to be called.

As you're children grow, you worry about them, but it is a totally different feeling to suddenly be worried about your grandchild. Although we are young, I look forward to fall when our new grandbaby arrives and we move into that next phase of life.

Feel free to let me know what you have called your parents, or if you are grandparents what you are called? Would love to hear the variety we have out there.

My husband's parents were called Memere and Pepere, which I have always found rich with family history and heritage. My parents and grandparents were called Grammy and Grampa/Grampy.

Whatever you choose, it much sustain a lifetime - not just your lifetime, but your grandchildren's. That's what you'll be in name and spirit, forever, in their minds and hearts.

Oh, and don't ever underestimate that the name will endure for generations!

Now, that's pressure to pick the right one!! :-)
