Speaking of alarm clocks - Teresa reports to me some afternoons that, "there's a 4 on my clock, quiet time is over." She says Daddy told her she could get up when there was a 4.

Now there are a few problems with this -
First, she does not concern herself with which position on the clock the 4 is in - thus it could read 2:14 and she professes it has a 4 and quiet time is over.
Second, she knows how to change the numbers displayed on the clock so at any given moment she can change the clock to have a 4 in the readout and thus make it "end of quiet time."
Third, as an artifact of the second problem listed above, the displayed time on the clock has no basis in reality!

Fortunately GramMary got her an analog clock for Christmas which we need to install and learn to read.
