So I was taking Big T home after he came over and did laundry, and as usual, he used the time to tell me how his life is going.
The conversation went like this:
Big T: *general discussion about making friends through a gaming server*
Me: That's nice, honey! You've done fun stuff with these guys?
Big T: Yeah! Also, I've been to some of the music clubs downtown!
Me: That's wonderful.
Big T: I sort of met a group of people there. I met one of the girls through a dating app.
Me: But you met a group of people?
Big T: Yes. It was fun.
Me: How wonderful! (Everything's wonderful to mommy, yes oh yes it is!)
Big T: Also, you should sort of know, that the girl I met. I"m dating her.
Me: *less brightly* You have a girlfriend?
Big T: Yeah. We saw each other a couple of times. She's coming over next week. I'm cleaning the house for her.
Me *a little stunned because my spawn has once again buried the lede*: So it's getting serious.
Big T: Yeah. I wasn't going to tell you at first, but then she told me we should just make it official that we're dating.
Me *thinking Really?*: So that's when you decided to tell me?
Big T: No. She changed her status on FaceBook, and so I did too, because I didn't want her to think I wasn't committed.
Me: So that's when you decided to--
Big T: Grandma and Grandpa saw it. I didn't want you to hear it from them.
Me: Ass. Hole.
Big T: I'm sorry?
Big T: *sighs* I'm sorry.
Me: This is so making the blog.
Big T: Fine.
Me: If I'd heard it from grandma and grandpa, you would have been on your own for laundry.
Big T: Yeah okay.
