I don't really want to make it a big deal, I just want to come home and say "Mom, this is my boyfriend." Just normally, like a straight guy would do with a girlfriend.
Is that stupid

Well if you feel comfortable, honestly most parents do infact know theyre just waiting for you to say, but some depending on how you were raised have no idea. I would just ideally tell her without your boyfriend because the last thing you want is a bad reaction infront of him.1

the key is is it a big deal to your mom?
its not to you but you need to respect their wishes as well as the feelings of your significant other.
would you rather it be a smooth transition for both your mom and boyfriend, or would you rather put them in an uncomfortable situation that could be unpredictable?1
