Today I had to run some errands and since school is out for spring/Easter break, I took Noah with me. One of the things we had to do was go to the Y and sign him up for swimming lessons and summer basketball.

From the front desk at the Y, you can see into the childcare room, where Noah spent many hours when he was younger. He stood next to me today and said, “It’s like looking at my past.”

I thought that was a pretty astute observation for a nine year old and said, “Yep.”

Then he said, “I saw a kid who looked just like me when I was little. We must be on an alternate time line.”

What can you say but, “Yes, I guess that must be it.”
