Terri Brisbin: I'm Late! (too!)

I just realized it's December 20th - my day to blog -- and realized I had not posted one. I usually post one about the Winter Solstice (tomorrow!) at this time of year but I didn't. I apologize! Yes, like Susan Meier said yesterday, I could blame deadlines, etc. But my delay has a specific reason -- her name is Alexis!

 My first grandbaby arrived earlier this week (2&1/2 days ago!) and I am completely captivated! And I have gotten almost nothing done this week - not Christmas preparations or writing! I know I'm not with her in person or taking care of her but I keep texting and getting new photos and call and just now visited. Other experienced grandparents tried to tell me how wonderful it would be, but I just didn't understand. Much like my son and daughter-in-law didn't understand anything we parents told them -- before she arrived! 

So, rather than ask a writing question - I thought I would ask a family one:  the big question everyone is asking me -- what are you going to be called? 

   I called mine Grandmom (only one alive while I was growing up).... My hubby's family go with Mom-mom and add a modifier like Mom-mom T or Mom-mom Jean.... I think I'm going to go with that, too. Be Mom-mom Terri....

 What do you think?  If you are a grandparent, what are you called? If you have a grandparent (LOL), what did you call yours?
