Today, we are launching a new Page to our site. This Page will be called Bammie’s World. I hope you enjoy this newest addition. I would really love your feedback. This website is for you, and I value your opinions.
Who Am I?
When I was born, my parents named me Wendi. Actually, that’s not quite right. That’s just what they called me. They put another name on my birth certificate. I’ve always wondered why would you name someone one thing and call them something else? You will just have to ask my Momma. Not only that, they gave me a nickname. Ha! They called me Cricket. LOL!!
How Did I Become Bammie?
I guess you could say my name changes started when I met my old high school sweetheart. He was cute, smart, and had the prettiest green eyes. He made me laugh all the time. Anyway, needless to say, I married that High School Sweetheart, took his last name, and have been married to him for over 36 years now.
Along came our 3 precious boys. Then, I became Momma. I mean really, that’s all I heard 24/7. Momma, will you play with us? Momma, where’s this or that? Momma, I’m hungry! Momma! Momma! Momma! I’m not complaining at all. The name totally grew on me. To this day, if I hear a kid in the grocery store call out, “Momma”, of course I turn around. Don’t we all? It’s just a habit. Seriously, I love being a Momma. I love my sons and am very very proud of the men they have grown up to be. 🙂
Those wonderful men have given me my very greatest treasures. My Grandchildren!! One of them, our very first grandchild, we lost to SIDS. It was a tragedy. We have since been blessed with 9 more beautiful, healthy grandchildren. I will always say I have 10 grandchildren. But just one of them is truly an angel.
I had decided to be called Grammie. 1st mistake. You never get to decide what your grandchildren call you. They will do that all on their own. Thank you very much. My first grandson could not say Grammie. He called me Dammie. Uh Oh, we had work to do. So, we worked with him. No, Kayden, not Dammie… Grammie. Dammie? No, Kayden… Grammie. Finally after about a month, we were working with him… Grammie, we’d say… Bammie? YES!!! Oh My!! How we whooped and hollered!! Yes, Bammie was great!! He has called me Bammie ever since, and so have the other 8 grandchildren who followed him.
What Is Bammie’s World?
Bammie’s World will be the place that we can share pictures and anecdotes about raising children and grandchildren. It will be where we share ideas and opinions.
Here are a few things I’m looking forward to implementing through Bammie’s World:
- Interaction with my readers
- Guest Writers
- Online Photography Contests with prizes
How Does It All Fit Together?
It goes together perfectly in my mind. Let’s see how it does in reality. LOL
I would like to keep our visits centered around children, family, photos, and life in general. I will look at Bammie’s World as a place to get to know you, my readers, and a place for you to get to know me.
I will still center creativebabyphotoprops.com around photography and props for children, and I am still very passionate about it.
Bammie’s World will be a place where we can just let our hair down, be real, and just get to know one another.
I hope you will let me know what you think. As I said earlier, your opinion matters.
If you have any questions or comments, or have anything you would like to add or suggest, please do so in the comment section below. I love to hear from you guys!!!
All the best,
