I did a poll on facebook asking friends and followers what their children called the parents' parents. It was such an interesting thread I decided to share it here.

I only knew one set of grandparents growing up, and we called them 'Grandma and Grandpa.' Yes, boring, I know! Surprisingly, only one other person said their kids call theirs that. And the person who wrote that had to clarify that the grandson who uses those terms in not from here!

Some of the other terms included:

Maw Maw and Paw Paw
