Talk about a bad way to start the day. 

Grades are in and I jumped on the computer as soon as I could open my eyes.  I was so hopeful that I would continue on with the Dean's List as I had every semester prior.  I had hopes of seeing all A's staring back at me on my transcript record.

But instead, I see this:

My Wednesday class ends with a B.  A stinkin' B.  I just want to cry.  I worked so hard this semester.  I got As on all of my assignments.  But I had to miss 3 classes due to Kage being sick.  Those absences took my chances at an A.  I'm so mad.  But I know that I really can't  be mad.  It's no one's fault, I guess. 

Well, it's my fault.  No one to blame but myself.  I knew the consequences for missing class.  She made it clear to us in the beginning.  But what can you do if your child is sick and no one else can be home with her?  Right.  I'm a mom first. 

I'm bummed.  Really, really bummed.

Listen up, lady. You should be darn proud of that B. You know as well as I do how hard it is to be a student, a mom, and a wife all at the same time. You daughter comes before school - it's a fact of life. You needed to miss those days.

And a B is still really good. If you had full-in failed the class, I could understand the level of disappointment. But I'm sure you'd agree - I'd rather get a B in a class than get a B in raising my daughter.

So keep your head up! Who cares if this semester takes you out of Dean's List?! Kinley sure doesn't care. And in a few weeks, you won't either. Keep being the excellent mom that I know you are and you'll be just fine.
