i always ask the kids when they have their birthdays.
and today, it popped into my head that it was Miguel's birthday.
he hadn't even realized it!
so i quickly scrounged up some candles, stabbed a cookie with them and made an impromptu cake.
he loved it.
imagine turning eleven.
and not even realizing that it's your birthday, because no one else remembered it was your birthday.
it breaks my heart.
happy 11th birthday miguel.
