When I told my parents I was pregnant, I asked my Mum what she'd like to be called. At first she said Nanna, which surprised me... "Don't you want to be Bubbah?" I asked. She gushed (just a wee bit) "Oh that would be lovely!". Bubbah (or Bubbe) is the Yiddish word for Grandmother, and her little Bubbelah (or pancake) is enjoying his cuddles.
