DINK= Double Income, No Kids. Very popular term in the 80’s….as in , “The DINKS next door just got a new BMW” or picture the couple who lives next door to the Griswalds in Christmas Vacation. Ok, we weren’t THAT Glam–but we used to travel around a bit and belong to a gym. And go to Starbucks.
SAHM= Stay At Home Mom. I think this is more of an internet thing, since you can’t really pronounce it phonetically.
While I’m at it–definitely adoption specific terms, what’s used on adoption.com:
PBM: potential birth mom
BM: Birth Mother
AMOM: Adoptive Mom
and probably the newest and FAVORITE added to my collection lately: WTF. This I say outloud now, figuring it’s better than having the Babe hear the real word. Anyway, it’s What The F%#K?????
I say WTF alot.

thank you for the clarification on the SAHM and DINK —duh, i feel dumb but i just didn’t know…lol
We have a small very personal agency and i’m so happy they do tell us all that – i could not be in the dark….i would go nuts. At least i know they are looking – i think i would faint if i got a call out of the blue….
BM also means bowel movement. Did you mean bowel movement or birthmother Mitch?
I never thought of that! Yikes! That’s horrible. Perhaps we should type bmom when need be. Come to think of it, that’s generally what people do. Maybe I just got a little too crazy with the abbreviations and dropped a few too many letters.
