What do the acronyms on CafeMom stand for ?

I feel stupid, but I am relatively new here and have been really enjoying the "answers" section the past few weeks. I must have missed it someplace, so please help me - what do all the acronyms stand for people use on CM ? I can figure out SO (significant other), but what about the others DD, DH, DS, etc. I thought at first they might stand for like "adopted daughter" or "foster daughter", but not seeing anything that fits like that. Thanks !!

  • I recommend you bookmark the list in the Newcomber's Club. There are way too many abbreviations to remember.
