Grandparents’ names are names of love from grandchildren!

Our Surfers Write:

  Grandparent is a name for love.

My grandchild used to call her grandpa Nine and now it has changed to Papa. She calls me Maama or Mom.  When her dad comes through the door, he always hollers "Hey Mom" and her aunt did the same thing. She knows I am not mommy, just mom. Everyone else calls me mom so it is only natural for her.

Our family called both of our grandfathers Boompa. The word is one of many that have been mangled, bastardized or just DeLain-ized in our family. This word is tossed around so frequently in our family, that actually saying "grandpa" or "grandfather" sound awkward and makes me blush. Boompa Peter was my dad’s dad. Peter Thomas DeLain. Avid golfer and once chair of the B.P.O.E – Benevolent People of the Elks – or DeLainized – Boompa Peter of the Elks. My Boompa on my mother’s side, and my name sake (no, I’m not Boompa Jr.) was out in the barn doing chores one day. Legend has it, when he came back in the house, he smelled so bad, my sister exclaimed – "Boompa – phew!" He was dubbed "Boompa Pew" from then on. Both of my Boompas are now gone. I live in Boompa Peter’s house. As we remodel and paint, he often enters my mind; he was no handy Boompa.

My grandparents were Granny and Gramps. They never raised me, but close. They are both gone now. And I miss them everyday of my life!

As I am from Germany and my son and daughter-in-law would like for their twins Abby and Jake (6 weeks old as of 1/22/99) to learn some German it was decided that we would be OMA and OPA.
