So, I’m Grandaddy and my wife is Grandmama. One set of co-grandparents are Grandma & Grandpa to their granddaughters and Grandpa Harold & Grandma Cathy to my other granddaughters. The birth grandfather of my adopted granddaughter is Grandpa David. My mother is Grandma Ruth. 
The girls never make mistakes. We don’t use what the girls first called us. At first Emma called Grandmama, “That.”
