Commute Conversations

I picked Laney up at around 6:00. We chat a little through the first half of the commute, but by the second half of Lake Shore Drive onto Sheridan Road, we've fallen into a companionable silence, listening to Chicago Day on WXRT, when Laney breaks the silence:

Laney: Good job, Mom
Me: What?
Laney: I've said enough.

Ah, the deep abiding mysteries of mothering a kid like Laney.
