My Mom has 10 grand kids and she is a Grandma, Granny, Nanny, Nana, Meme, Nantny and Grammy. Seems like almost each grandchild picked out a different name for her. Our grand kids picked out mine and my husbands name. They call us Poppy and Nanny or Grammy.

Tell your mother I felt the same way. But one of the sweetest sounds in my life is when i hear, "Grandma?? I love you!" (so much better than say, "Hey, Sue!") lol!
