But surely there were no other Ammas and Buppas: Amma sometimes, but Buppa was seemingly unheard of. (BTW, there's nothing wrong with ending a sentence with a preposition.)
Except . . . Except Shauna saw someone in our own town, our own little town, advertising Amma and Buppa mugs a little before Christmas. So she surprised us with them on Christmas morning. She had us open them simultaneously, and we are, at this moment, both drinking our morning coffee from said mugs.
Buppa [buhp-uh] Special grandpa to Danica and Jonathan. Has been known to have ruffles.
Amma [am-uh] Grandma extraordinaire to Danica and Jonathan. Often found with Rhonda.
Buppa's Ruffles comes from a time when Danica was very young and brushing my hair, and she called my short hair, on a pattern-bald head, ruffles.
Meanwhile, Amma often invokes the help of Rhonda, when flustered.
