^D. was pretty interested in the time today, as he's on a tight schedule with Halloween things tonight. Waiting is hard at any age, so getting a good 'feel' for a clock and wait time is important. We had a Q&A session and the best moments were: a) the lightbulb going on when he "really got" the 59 to 00 minutes thing when the hour jumps to the next one (because it matters to him – he leaves at 6:00) and b) Watching my cell phone's clock as it went from 4:59 to 5:00. Also got to show how "time flies when you're having fun" (jibjab took 13 minutes, q&a took 12 minutes and it went fast, chutes + ladders went fast at 10 minutes – BUT waiting that ONE MINUTE for the time to change from 4:59 to 5:00 felt SLOW. The nature of time always interests me, so it's great to pass a "sense of time" on.^
