Many of you regular posters use the terms DS and DD during posts in teh forums, which I soon realised represented a son or daughter.

But please put me out of my misery, and tell me what the first D stands for !

Yours (behind the times)

Have always assumed it stands for 'darling' - but could be other things depending on their moods!!!

I've often wondered that too!
I made the assumption that it was "Dear" in the end but I'm really not sure. Could equally be "Dunkin Doughnut" or Nintendo "DS"!

I think it stands for Dear, I was on another parent's forum and there was a section where you could look up well known acronyms, and it was there.

Also Darling, but I have been know to privately substitute it with Dippy, Dozy, Dopey, Dratted, Disorganised, Demanding, Degenerate, Dysfunctional, ...

You have to make quite a few posts to work your way through that lot though. :wink:
