View Full Version : What do all the acronyms mean?

15-11-2011, 06:49 PM
I am new here and I am getting a bit confused with all the acronyms the ones I know so far, or THINK i know are

LO = Little One
CM = Child Mind/ing/er etc
D&S/D&V = Diarhea and Vomiting/Sickness (learned that one today)
DS/DD/DH = (I think) Dear Son/ Dear Daughter/Dear Husband (or darling)

If I am wrong please correct me, and if you could tell me some more that would be a god send lol

Thank you :D
