View Full Version : Acronym meanings?

10-22-2002, 05:50 PM
Sorry, but I'm new to the whole parenting forum thing, and have been unable to find definitions in the FAQ or a serach here for the acronyms people are using (e.g. DD, DH, DS, SAHM, etc...)

Can anyone point me to some help?

I know there have been threads before, but here goes with what I can remember...

The D stands for dear, h=husband, s=son, d=daughter
SAHM=stay at home mom

Then there are SIL, MIL, FIL, BIL, etc., for Sister/mother/father/brother-in-law

Sometimes it references brands: PP=peg perego

or other stuff:
cio=cry it out (letting baby cry him/herself to sleep)
lol=laugh out loud
btw=by the way
tia=thanks in advance

This page has a lot of abbreviations: http://pages.ivillage.com/psboards/acronyms/

At first it seems like a code, but pretty soon it becomes second nature. HTH (oh, that means hope this helps...)
