I received this from a friend and thought I'd post it here for those of us with children and grandchildren. I think it's important that we understand what they are saying when we come up behind them while they are online. Hope it helps!

It's amazing how much kids can learn when they are motivated. I betcha every kid knows each and everyone of these.
Follow our story of living, loving and laughing with a debilitating disease:

Good grief, Dotsie! And I thought I was up to date with tech talk and I could only pick up five at the most. You just have to admire their creativity though. Betcha, the grandkids would have their own set of lingo by the time they hit double digits. Now, that's another one to look forward to and hopefully be able to latch on.
