I can do this.
I know how you feel -- my grandma was the same way. I went back to school full time when I was about 25, and grandma was tsk-tsking the whole time. Even after I had graduated in the top 10% of my law school class, she was still skeptical: I called her a few months after graduation to tell her that I wouldn't be able to join the family for Thanksgiving, and oh by the way, I was expecting my bar exam results that weekend. Grandma: "Well, Dear, you mustn't be too disappointed if you don't pass... so many don't, you know." Sheesh!
After that, I put my family on a "need to know" basis with respect to my finances, my job plans, and so on. It has saved me a lot of grief over the years because they can't second-guess what they don't know about.
passed the bar on the first try
