Tonight, Erin and I were on the move:  I picked her up from Mayo HS after practice, off to Chipotle for a quick dinner, then a haircut for her, and finally a piano lesson.  Sometimes I drive 80 miles and don't go anywhere...

On our ride home, we were discussing the homework on her docket tonight.  I mentioned an assignment that she has to finish.  This exchange ensued:

"You're about halfway done with that, right?"
"Um, not exactly."
"But, I thought that's what you told me?"
"Mom, sometimes I lie to you to make you happy."

We locked eyes... and both started laughing...

Miss Erin makes me laugh and smile almost every day.  I'm grateful she's here, showing me the way.
