Grandpa’s singing at the top of his lungs right over Claire’s bedroom where she is sleeping in late. Yesterday, Robert set his clock ahead because he has been dilly-dallying at bedtime instead of brushing his teeth. So this morning when it was really 9:00 (the usual time he gets up), he thought is was 9:15, so he started in on his vocal exercises!

Ugh! I am not ready for this.

A few days later, Grandpa told me that Robert had set his watch ahead. I don’t how he found out but he did.

“Why did he do that?” he asked asked me.

“Because you keep dilly-dallying at bedtime,” I said.

“No, I don’t.” he said.

“Well, good,” I said. “You stick to the schedule, and I’ll give back your 15 minutes.
