I have seen a lot of sayings and words on CM that are not correct...but funny in their inaccuracy.  I can't think of them all, but here are a few:

popsicles = one mother wrote "pop sickles"

two and a half years old = one mother wrote "two in a half"

old wive's tale = one mother wrote "old wise tale"

etc (etcetera) = one mother wrote "ext" (throughout her post, not a typo)

municipal pool (our local public pool) = a young girl I know wrote "I'm going to the minissipool" on her facebook status.  Cute.

I know there are more...(and I'm not making fun or putting them down...it seems a lot of the time it simply shows that they misunderstand what is being said and haven't seen it written before, so they don't know).

Care to add to the list?

I've seen moms put "than" when it should be "then" and it drives me nuts!!! They'll put something like "I'm going to the store, THAN to work.." I've also seen moms put "husben" rather than husband, and they're totally serious. I also CONSTANTLY see moms put "your" when it should be "you're!" Or the wrong form of to/too/two, their/there/they're and things like that. That's not exactly the same as what you're talking about, but its still wrong lol.
