Nana needed two Poppa's
You really can't make this up, I would have never in a million years thought something like this could be an issue for someone.
I actually haven't even had many issues with his ex-wife, so it surprises me that she actually felt this ---
We found out from my SD (27) that her mom (my husband's ex) was very upset when he started to call himself "Grandpa" in front of the grandkids instead of HER (as in his EX WIFE's) preferred name for him, "Poppa." Can you guess what she has the darlings call her? Yup, Nana.
Her man, (not married) has been Poppa from day one of the grands being born. My husband didn't want to also be Poppa, so he referred to himself as Grandpa and that just stuck. (He did that on his own, I wasn't even in the picture at that point)
So --- The question I can't help but ponder:
Why did Nana need TWO poppas?
I just think it speaks a lot to the whole need to control issues we see here on the boards a lot.
It really surprised me, honestly.
His daughter didn't know why she was upset by it, just said that maybe she felt it was easier if the grandparents from her side were all "Nana, poppa" so it was less confusing for the kids. But that makes no sense because you can bet your ass I am NOT ALLOWED to EVER -- EVER -- Be called Nana. lol
It's no big deal so I am not treating it as such, it just makes me shake my head and chuckle a little. Thought some of you might chuckle with me.
