I'm really new to this but I don't have many mum friends and work from home so thought I'd give it a bash! What's the lingo?

Can someone help with the abbreviations used?

Thanks smile

Hello! Those stand for Dear Partner, Children, Daughter, Son etc. Basically the first D is usually read as "dear" or "darling" and the second letter is the family member you're talking about.

The D ca be a rather sarcastic "D" if you're feeling annoyed with the person in question...grin

In terms of how to get on board, just start reading around the different boards and contributing. Make sure you read the whole thread and not just the top post and the title as often the original poster (the OP) will have updated or given more information.

My favourite boards are Feminism Chat, _Chat, AIBU (am I being unreasonable), food & recipes, and all the pregnancy and parenting ones from when I was expecting!
