    As if they've been sliced almost the whole way through. You fold them and the slice is completed. Very clean.
    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Sounds like you know my ex-wife. My son married a girl with a child so I inherited a grandchild. The first time I had them over for dinner Ciara kept saying "Hey Grandpa" and it took me a few moments to realize she was talking to me. Now I have a grandson Zac who is about 5 and Ciara is 10. It's cool, I love it.

    Some people are just super vain and don't want anyone to know they're old enough to be a mother or grandmother (or father or grandfather). I personally like the word "grandmother" and "grandfather" 'cause it sounds like such an honorable title! I'd be thrilled if one day I became a mother OR a grandmother! I don't want some little kid calling me his Coco!

    My grandkids call me Grandmother. I never could stand all of those cutsie names and let my kids know that I wasn't going to answer to anything else but Grandmother. The little one could only say Muduh, but now he says Grandmother plainly. I miss Muduh.

    I can't stand those nic names for Grandparents either. I was 38 when I became a grandmother. Everyone was asking me what the baby would call me...."Grandma of course" To this baby, I'm really old so why not? For years people would say Oh, you're not old enough to be a grandmother, I'd say, "I am, and I love it!"

    There's nothing greater than when one of my little grandsons says Gwama I wuv you...oh my heart melts like butter on a biscuit....

    It has always been "Grandma and Grandpa" in my family. I don't have grandkids yet but my older brother does - and they love it. My mother takes the most pride in being called "Great-Grandma".

    I have a friend whose MIL is so vain and self-absorbed that she refuses to let her grandchildren call her grandma - she makes them call her Nana. So, the kids have a Grandma and a Nana. That is unfair to the kids in my opinion. At least now that they are older they understand the difference between the two, and you can guess which one they would rather spend their time with.

    In our family grandchildren call the grandmother Nonna. It's an Italian thing. I know of other Italian descendants who mistakenly use Nanna instead.

    I have a friend that even called her own father "Walter", at his own insistance; he didn't want to be called "Daddy", "Dad", etc. She calls her mother, "Mama", though. I have no idea what she called her grandparents. I think they have been dead forever, though.

    My father is Italian and my mother French-Canadian. So as a child, I had a Nonna (italian) and a Grand-maman (french). I loved that. It makes simpler than saying Grandma X and Grandma Y.
