When my littlest turned two and “Happy Birthday” had been sung and candles had been blown out, he turned to us and asked for a fork. To eat the cake. His cake. Like, the whole thing.

On this day **indistinct cough** years ago, I was running through an airport with my childhood crush and a wedding dress over my head.
