When the big hand is on the "Then" and the little hand is on the "Maybe later"...

Now that we've got a mammoth mahogany timekeeper, we're working on telling time with the Critter.

When the bells chime, we all stop and count the chimes together out loud, and then introduce the concept of o' clock.

Last night, we paused the latest episode of Battlestar Galactica (it's crazy good) as the bells chimed again, and turned to the Critter.

Me: Eight bells. What time is it, then?
Critter: (pauses and thinks) Now.

No more Kafka-hour specials on Little Einsteins for that kid.
