We discovered 2 days ago that we are to be the grand parents of a little French girl. Our daughter Charlotte and her partner Badara, who live in France, are to have a baby in February 2011. She will be coffee coloured and already has lots of cousins waiting for her arrival. What's French for Nanny, which all my grand kids call me? The only translation I can find is Grand-Mère which makes me sound ancient.
