Vixie and her Mammy

Mammy is the name that we traditionally are calling our maternal grandmothers.  I was the first, because my Mammy had a nanny in the South of the USA and they called their nannies Mammy.  She loved her Mammy so much that she wanted to be called Mammy one day.

(Clarification for anyone who speaks with an Irish accent, in the USA, Mammy is pronounced the same way as Americans pronounce "Ma'am," which isn't very helpful unless you have heard that in a movie or some such... as Mammy and "ma'am-y" would sound the same in Irish too!!!)

If you recall the page entitled "My Grampa," It is made with basically the same stuff, just a bit more girly looking. :)
