A Word for Monday – Grandmother

This week we’re expecting a visit from Tanya’s mother.  And we’re already eagerly anticipating a visit to Jon’s parents this summer.  So this is a perfect Monday to celebrate our grandmothers by learning those words in Slovak!

The more formal word for “Grandmother” in Slovak is “Stará mama” (literally “old mother”), but more common are the words:

babka  [bahb-kah]                                 babička  [bahb-eech-kah]

As you can imagine, we’re excited about seeing our Babkas in the weeks and months ahead!
