Of course on the Internet people use abbreviations all over the place. I have created this thread as a common place for users to find answers to their questions about what an abbreviation means. I am really drawing a blank right now, so I only have two to start out the list. If you have more just add them here, and I will put them in the OP so they will be easy to find. If you ever have a question on one that you have seen that isn't on the list, just ask here and we will find the answer and list it. I know a lot of you are from 2 peas, I am not listing the 2 peas ones for now. If they start being used a lot then I guess I will post them. For example things the whole family thing, DD, DS, DH, etc. I have never seen those outside of 2 peas, so I won't list them, unless as I just said they start becoming common place here.

I will also try to keep this list alphabetical, so it will be quick to find the one you are looking for.
