Today Jess, Bella, Nathaniel, Ava and I trekked up to Hazleton to visit Pop-Pop, Gramma and Nana. Now who are those people?
Pop-Pop = My father, or Bella’s, Ava’s and Nathaniel’s grandfather.
Gramma = My mother, or their grandmother.
Nana = My grandmother or their great-grandmother.
It’s weird for me to call them by these names, as that’s not at all what I grew up with, but Bella insists on making sure I call them by their “proper names.” It’s so funny though that it’s all relative, no pun intended. And how do you teach that to a 4 year old? How in the world can she comprehend that my grandmother is her great grandmother, or when I say Gramma I don’t mean my Mother, but my grandmother. Inevitably it causes issues.
Nana, Jaime, Gramma, Nathaniel, Ava and Bella in clockwise order. Ava is all so enamored of Bella. Nathaniel is just looking forward to reallocating the dirt in the planter in front of him.
