OK so I am not completely new here but I do not have the option of getting everyday. I read posts all the time and I always see the acronyms. Will some one please tell me what they all mean. I know SO - significant other and LO - little one. SAHM stay at home mom and thats about it. I know it sounds dumb but please, it drives me crazy. 


Thanks
