Today is Elayna's 17th birthday. Wow. Dude.
Tomorrow is her debut in Seussical
! All are invited! It's at her high school; e-mail me if you need to know where that is. It starts at 7pm, and tickets are $10. Check out her Facebook profile for a pic from the dress rehearsal!
So my parents are here. This is the first time they've met one of my non-spouse poly partners as a partner. They met feste_sylvain
first as our friend, because I wasn't out to them yet. I think it went as well as it could have? I mean, awkward. But only in places. It wasn't a full night of awkward. The true test is today, when I'll be spending the day just with them; if she has a Problem with our situation, that's when Mom will bring it up. She's too polite to do so in front of Judah, you see. I plan to distract her by suggesting clothes shopping; I legitimately do need new jeans, and hopefully we can derail the complaintmobile onto Route "Why Aren't You a Size Zero Anymore". I am more comfortable on that terrain, as I don't actually care that I'm not the slender waif she'd prefer.
Elayna actually has rehearsal until late! :( I'm going to see if there's an opportune time to sneak in for hugs. I love that she's in the musical, but I hate never seeing her. Especially on her birthday!
*stretch* For now, I shower and wrap her gifts (I'm such a slacker). Then the parents will descend.
