Australians have a habit of shortening words - footie for football, breakie for breakfast, you get the idea. Most of them annoy me but I can get over it - it is a cultural thing that I have to just live with.

But I am starting a one woman crusade against "bubs" for babies. Now I clarify imemdiately I have no problem with babies, toddlers, children of any age and stage - it is the word "bubs" which is like fingers down a chalkboard to me.

Down with the "bubs", up with the "babies" :-)

I agree!!!
Worse, I know someone who uses "bubs" or "bub" as a pet name for other people!!! *shudder*
