Texting Abbreviations For Parents

AB46, BITO, and Other Acronyms For Moms Who Text

Do you ever feel like you're speaking a language that only other moms can understand? Especially when it comes to texting! Why do teens get to have all the fun with their own text speak? Moms are the ones who are typing away with one hand and nursing a babe or getting lunch ready with the other. A little shorthand would actually come in handy when texting back and forth with my mommy friends, so I figured we might as well have our own mom speak. Don't worry: I've started the list for your easy reference.
