No, just in a family with a lot of divorces where the divorced men recruited some pretty nurturing women.
First when I was REALLY young, my Mom's parents divorced and Granddad's new wife really took to us kids.
A while later, my parents divorced, both remarried, and the new stepmother's and stepfather's mothers were each the same way.
Those plus the two original grandparents makes five. We were encouraged by these ladies to call each of them some form of "Grandma", and we didn't fight it. They had genuine affection for us, and the extra presents and spoiling were great!
Considering the sheer familial hell I see emerging from a lot of split families, we were blessed.
