Conversation with Addison 1 month before he turns 5

Tonight Addison and I were driving along one of our old commutes to his first preschool. We were talking about our old house and his old school, and then he let out a big sigh. I asked, "What's the matter, Bubs?"

"Oh, I just feel sad."

"Why? Are you thinking about old times?"

"Yeah," his voice slid down as he spoke, "That was all the way back in 2009. And 2009 will never happen again."

I smiled. "You're right, Addison. You don't get to go backward. Only forward."

Addison sighed again. "Everything just keeps changing all the time."

"I know buddy. That's life, I guess. Time keeps moving forward, and things keep changing. But I like being here with you right now. And that's fun, huh?"
