LO, DL, DH, WTF??

LO, DL, DH, WTF??

Have you ever fumbled your way one late night on to a mummy forum and found yourself attempting to translate the foreign codes they choose to chat in?

Like, what is the deal? Is it a status thing? To be taken more seriously as an official mum. We are all mums now therefore we suddenly speak fluent mum code? Maybe its throwing it back to MSN days when evry1 used 2 msg in rly shrt wrds, brb. Only now its not MSN it’s Mumsnet. Ooor are they just trying to save time? We get it, time is top on our Christmas list but is replacing Kid with ‘LO” really buying you that extra episode of Botched?? ..We think not.

All in all we just think it makes you sound like a bit of a nutter. An annoying one at that. BUT incase you are ever knee deep in forum hell and really need to know WTF they are all on about, here is;
