Lakewood resident Sandy Toby Kay is known to most (not just her 13 grandchildren) as Grandma. Her daughter, Julie Doyle, and son-in-law, Tim DeLaughter founded the mega pop rock band Polyphonic Spree (if you think you haven’t heard of them, think again — their songs are regularly heard in TV shows, movies and commercials). But Advocate managing editor Christina Hughes Babb knew Grandma as her daughter’s preschool teacher at Kid Country on Skillman and Monticello. Read more about Grandma here on Christina’s blog post.
