E is awesome for a bunch of reasons but first and most importantly it’s because of her mom.. I’ve been besides myself with stress about telling her about H and I, mostly because I was really worried I’d loose E.. You just never know how parents will react.
I couldn’t figure out how to tell her so we went to coffee and talked about Bob and how things are harder because I don’t live as close to her so I can’t pick E up as easily, I told her I don’t mind that she gets dropped off at the new place so I can bring her when I go. A is so worried about imposing on me/us and she made a comment about making sure it wasn’t getting on H’s nerves.. Decided that was as good a place to start as any…
“about that… E is really observant and she happened to notice yesterday we moved into a one bedroom with one bed… I guess you can kind of assume what you want from that..”
“Oh, I knew that, I think you two are perfectly adorable together, where you worried I wouldn’t”
YES I WAS.
I explained to her how I got burned at the gym, how the last thing I want is for her to think because im a lesbian I’m bad for her daughter or somehow unsafe.. I explained to her T’s “it makes me sick” reaction and how I really value her opinion and didn’t want to make her sick…
She said it makes her really sad T acted like that that anyone acts like that, she said she really appreciates my influence on E and she loves H and says of E asks us questions I have her permission to answer her however I think is appropriate but ALSO she’s going to be attending A’s best guy friends wedding and he just happens to be marrying another man so A and E have already started talking about different kinds of couples and how love is love and gender isn’t important. She told me her son who is a little older understands it and how important that was to her.
I left feeling so good about everything, so totally content that if E sees h holding my hand it’s nothing to worry about, that if she asks again why I call h babe I can tell her why, because she’s my girlfriend and I love her.
This was definitely the best part of the day today :) SO happy things went the way they did bc I absolutely ADORE A and think shes amazing.
