Conversation with my almost 7 year old during today’s history lesson. We were talking about Benedict and abbeys and making connections with Redwall.

Caleb: I bet Methusaleh was really an abbot a long time before Father Abbot.
Me: I don’t think so. I think he was the oldest at Redwall but I don’t think he was ever Abbot.
Caleb: Why not?
Me: Well, not everyone wants to be in control. Some people are fine with that.
Caleb (with an incredulous look): Why?
Me: I have no idea.

Can you tell we’re both first borns? *Grin*
