I certainly don't think of them as "Darling" whatever, but I do think of them as "Dear"!

I often just say the bairn as I just have one granddaughter.

Could just use the full title.

I just use gs(for grandson) and if I had one would use gd(for granddaughter) smile

I wish someone would change those acronyms, although I know they're common usage on many websites. I don't wish to refer to my children or grandchild every time I refer to them as 'darling'.

They are my darlings, but it seems trite to use that term all the time and detracts from the genuine use of the endearment.

Sorry, just a minor rant. smile

If you look up above under Gransnet forums click on the tab Acronyms and all will be revealed

I was confused with the abbreviations when I started heregrin. Have a look at 'Acronyms' (above, right). Dgd means (I think) Darling grand daughter - good luck!!!

Dear Granddaughter and Dear Husband. If you click on the 'Acronyms' tab, top right, you'll find a list of the most popular ones used here.

Welcome to GN BTW (welcome to Gransnet, by the way wink)

As a new member of Gransnet I find myself struggling with some abbreviations. What does Dgd and dh mean?
