Miguel was only seven years old but he was wise beyond his years. His single mother who was raising him, told him not to leave the parking lot of their apartment complex when he would go out to play.
One day he asked his mother why she had to go to work at night. She told him because that is how she made their living.
Miguel walked around the parking lot with his hands in his pocket trying to understand. Why did she have to make her living walking the streets?
He kicked his tennis shoes through the puddle wishing she was a waitress that worked days like Bobby's mom. Then he had an idea! He would take her to meet Bobby's mom and she could get her a job as a waitress!
He went home to an empty apartment, pleased, knowing that he was going to help his mom.
