LO = Little One

In the CafeMom Newcomers Club group, there is a forum for starting out on CafeMom. This forum has a post that has a bunch of the frequently used abbreviations. I find myself referencing it fairly often and it helps a lot.

Finally!  a post about this...I figured there must be a CafeMom abbreviations dictionary somewhere that I wasn't privy too!  I've been able to figure out most of the acronyms but sheesh! it's really hard sometimes.  I always thought it was Dear Husband and Dear Daughter, etc.  Can you all enlighten with some more of the common acronyms used here?  TY :)

Cool!  Thanks all for the enlightenment.  I was ROFLOL with some of these.  I could never for the life of me figure out exactly what AF meant! haha!  I could determine the general meaning from surrounding text, but I honestly thought it had to be some technical term I never heard before.  Now Aunt Flo, I know all too well! haha
