When I was a little girl my great-grandmother Beatriz Barcina had become bed ridden. She was a sweet old lady. A big old lady. All of her great-grandchildren always referred to her as "Big Momma" to her face. Or we called her "Big-Momma-in-the-Bed". I was four and would go running into her room shouting "Hi Big Momma!" Why is it that now as an adult, I think that name is so derogatory? Yet I think it's funny to me, but also insulting.
I mean, would you ever want your grand or great-grand-children to call you "Big Momma" or "Big Daddy"?
