I am grateful that my daughter survived her first semester of college! One down, seven to go! She had many transitions to make, and seemed to handle everything really well…

spoiler alert: bragging about to ensue…

I am proud that my daughter made Dean’s List!! Yay!!

But the conversation went something like this:

Me: How were your grades (because when it comes to grade distribution they’re independent adults who require privacy, but when it come payment they’re dependent children- but that’s a whole other post)

Daughter: Embarrassing. They sucked. I should have done SO much better…

University: Congratulations! Welcome to the Fall 2019 Dean’s List for your academic achievement….

So- there you go…

  2. I found that so funny. I could get into the school website to pay money either for tuition or to add to her student account for food and stuff but as far as grades or schedule went, no way. Congrats to you both for surviving the first semester.

  3. Knowing you, you are analyzing why she seemed disappointed in herself, despite being on the Dean’s List.

    Probably back in the dark ages when I was in college, parents knew our grades. Ours knew my brother and I would do well. I was always on the Dean’s List, but they never said anything about it. If they were proud of me, I never knew it. Please, please let your daughter know you are proud of her. Come to think of it, our parents may have never praised my brother, either. I’m going to let him know that I heard pride in every tone when I heard them talk about him to others.

      1. I know. My son was so made that one semester he got a B from one professor because it ruined his chance for the highest honors! It was for his Master’s! I was so proud of him, but you know I am Mom.
