Chita, also known as Edwin, turned 12 the other day.
Last Saturday in fact.
I'll admit, I haven't been the most consistent in my birthday celebrating lo' these many months.
Of the hundred or so birthdays I have on the calendar I think I've maybe celebrated 10 with kids.
Time to cut the fat and do some prioritizing.
Chita is one that I just can't cut.
A loyal, sweet and selfless child; he can wield a mighty temper at times but is always quick to forgive and forget.
4 of 8 children from one of my favorite families in Los Laureles.
That little one Darwin there, I wish he were mine, he's darn near perfect.
