So much of being a mom is faking it. We don't know what the hell we're doing. Not when they're young and not when they're older. So we fake it. I had a good mom, but it was complicated. I just want to say that all of these years, while I was faking it, I was doing my best impression of you.
Miguel: When I think of your mom and me, I think of the phrase 'written in the stars'. I used to love that expression, the way it meant that the universe had plans for two people. That was your mom and dad, but it wasn't like that for her and me. It was strange. And I was filled with doubt on our wedding day and on a lot of days after that. But as the years went by, I realized that was okay. Some love stories are written in the stars and other love stories are written together: two people the universe had no plans for writing their story in the stars together.
