Is this Progress?

My mom’s thinking about having a New Year’s Eve party. She asked me if I would come. I made a face that meant, “Maybe, if nothing better comes up.”
She said, “Oh, I get it. If one of your lezzie friends has a party, we’re out.”
She was right.
Now I’m wondering: is this progress, my mom saying lezzie?
