I don't know which is worse, the seeming indifference of a parent, or a parent who just pats you on the head and says "I knew you could do it," totally negating all the hard work you put into doing it. So see what you missed?

Frankly, I would have been crushed, too. But with longevity comes perspective. I'm with Carla. I think your mom probably didn't want to vest too much emotion at this point thinking she might set you up for a fall when all she really needed to do was just give you a little encouragement. Well, you've got it here, and in spades.
