Question referring to titles


#1

I'm sorry if this is dumb question but as I have been strolling through this forum for a while I can't help but notice DH, DS, DD and I have no idea what they mean. Well I know they stand for husband, son, daughter but the first thought that comes to my mind is deceased husband, son, daughter. I just want to understand what the first D stands for. I feel crazy because I should know this stuff, I'm 21 yet I am confounded by these abbreviations.

Thanks,

Jeff

Dear (or Dearest) Husband, Dear Son, Dear Daughter, Dear Wife.

Good question, it means "Dear". It's more commonly used by women on CAF, particularly so in the parenting section of the forums. Or as I affectionately refer to them "the Mommy Mafia". (All in good fun, ladies, don't hate!) :p

Thank you guys so much! I now feel like I can understand much more. I absolutely love this section of the forum as I get a perspective I would not have otherwise. Thank you all for all of your hard work and time that you all spend on here helping others and asking great questions!

You will find other ones the deeper you delve :) For instance:
MIL = Mother in Law
FIL = Father in Law
SMIL = step mother in law

and on and on! lol it can be a little confusing at first. I sometimes peek over at the Nest forums and they really get into the abbreviations.

I finally figured out ABC = artificial birth control. Still working on NFP.
