Donald Trump: Mr. Trump? What an egotistical jerk.

I chose "Mame" as my grandma name...I'm so NOT a regular grandma. My husband chose "Mac" from his Scottish roots in Clan MacMillan. None of the 6 g-kids batted an eye over it. When I volunteer in their classrooms the whole class usually calls me "Miss Mame".

As a child, I referred to my grandparents as Grandmother and Granddaddy. If I needed to indicate which one, I simply added their last name. I thought I would be called Grandmother also. When my first grandson arrived, that is the way I referred to my self to the baby as well as to others. When he first started talking, he was calling his mother mommy and calling me the same thing. At some point, in his mind, I became Grand mommy. It sounded so sweet that I was thrilled he had found his own name for me. Now he's four and never calls me anything else. His two year old brother calls me Grand; time will tell if he ever adds the mommy.
