Mother-in-law, daughter-in-law engage in spirited spat over nicknames

DEAR CAROLYN: When my son’s eldest started to talk, I encouraged her to call me “G-ma” because I didn’t care for “Grandma.” She never could learn G-ma, but instead called me Mamaji. I thought this was adorable and very special since it was her own idea. I became Mamaji. It is my email, user ID, I even had a T-shirt made! Not a word was said against it.
