Mammy’s little baby

When Hudson and Denton were born,


they had a total of six grandmothers… two regular grandmothers and four great- grandmothers.  I don’t know too many children who are born with a blessing like that. Since these were my first grandchildren, I was the only one out of the six that didn’t already have a “grandmother name”.  In that little group there were four Maw Maws, a Meme and a Memaw.

The day after the twins were born, when I was at the hospital, Nikki asked me what I wanted to be called.  I told her that since the other five grandmothers had names that started with ‘M’, I wouldn’t add to the confusion.  I said, “I’ll be Grammy”.

And I was Grammy; that is until those boys started to talk.  At that point, I became… Mammy.  And that was o.k. – as a matter of fact, I like that name.

My third grandchild was born today. I’m glad that what she will call me has long been settled by her older brothers.  So, ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages,
focus your attention on the center ring of the Jaques Circus as I introduce Josie Lynn Jaques

  1. Oh Mammy, what a blessing. She is a lucky little girl to live next door to such an outstanding mentor. I hope you pass on all of your talents to this precious bundle. Much love, Dian and Ed

  2. She is the perfect little doll we prayed for; Our best wishes to you and all of her family. I am assuming Nikki is fine and we are so happy for her and Josh. I can’t wait to here what the boys have to say about her. She has a beautiful family to greet her and I can’t wait to see her. Love to all.

  3. Congratulations to all! I wondered why there had not been a post in several days! It was so nice to see Vivien’s picture…

    • Thanks! Mama would have been tickled to have a granddaughter, especially if she had been able to do her sewing.
