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.

The phrase "derail the complaintmobile" is so perfect and appropriate to some of my own situations that I am going to gleefully adopt it.

If that thing must roll, I hope it rolls where bidden.

Wooo! Much birthday happiness in wishes... and also for family sanity.

Her gifts need to be showered before you wrap them? :-)

Are you taking the (grand)parents to see Elayna's show?

"I am more comfortable on that terrain, as I don't actually care that I'm not the slender waif she'd prefer."
~Thumbs up on that note. I'm happy that you are comfortable with the shape you are in and are at home, both in your new domicile and in your own skin.

As for Elayna, it's awesome that she's in Seussical. Bryanna is considering signing up for Theater Arts this year, if she doesn't get into Beacon Charter School and their Theater Arts major. (Their curriculum is structured more like Explo's, which suits her.) She can take forensic science junior year if she takes the prerequisites this year: honors chemistry and biotechnology.

Happy Birthday to Elayna! and tell her to "Break-a-leg" and I hope to performance goes great.
