My mom just asked me what we're gonna have the baby call her. I said "grandma" and she said no like a cute lil nickname that babies have for grandma's. I told her then she'd be whatever the baby decides to call her but she said that the baby will call her whatever I call her so...

What are some cute alternative names to call Grandma?
