    Well the "D" can be for Disney or Dear and the "H" is husband, "W"wife, "S" son, etc.
    Hope this helps.

    Just google it. It is universal "speak." . DH= Dear Husband. DS = Dear Son, DD = Dear Daughter.

    Disneyland Hotel, but that's often abbreviated DLH. ;)

    I believe that was suppose to be funny/joke/sarcasm.

    When our son was a difficult teenager, the DS stood for words I try not to use. :furious:

    I think PrincessShmoo was joking.

    I like to add ages, i.e., DS15, DD10

    jdb - there are times I wanted to use PITA ~ any member of my family that was being a pain..... :rotfl2::rotfl2::rotfl2: PITADH ;) :eek: That's a joke.


    What I don't get is YMMV or something like that.

    YMMV = Your mileage may vary (i.e., you may have a different experience/result)

    I've found that http://www.urbandictionary.com/ is a great resource when I encounter an abbreviation I'm not familiar with. For example, I didn't know what IIRC stood for and had to look it up.

    YMMV was a hard one for me,

    Your mileage may vary

    Others use OH for Other Half... but for the longest time I thought it was perhaps ornery husband

    I am, at times, amused at the number of abbreviations people use online. I guess it reflects our hurried society.
    I just don't see it saves that much time for me to write "DH" rather than "my husband". I'll keep trying to decipher all these abbreviations. :scratchin

    I think the abbreviations became popular with texting. It's easier to type "my husband" on a grown up keyboard than it is when your thumbs are using a mini-keyboard on a cell phone.

    The abbreviations that are hard for me to figure out are the ones the military uses. Our son-in-law is in the army reserves and our daughter keeps using the acronyms -- they've become second nature to her, but it's like hearing a foreign language.
