Watch it — may28th

Sara asked us a few weeks ago, if we could please help her out a little — she still didn’t know how to read the time. I guess our parenting technique has been a bit too relaxed perhaps? She’ll be nine soon! So I quickly ordered a watch for her and for Pim, and we’ve been talking about the time a lot lately. And surely she mastered it in no-time! Advantage is that she can always tell me what time it is… disadvantage is that she keeps close attention to my schedule, and constantly reminds me that I’m running late, which I often am!

The watches I got are from may28th and I think they are just perfect — simple, colourful, and water resistant enough to withstand a thorough bath (as I can attest).

These are pretty thank you for sharing.
You were so right to wait to teach your daughter time… Mine is 5 and keeps telling me to hurry or she’ll be late! 😉
Love your posts and this blog.

My little boy Ted is the same – almost 9 and only just mastering the time! Those watches are lovely but I also love the O Clock range at Little Hanbury. The watch faces are so clear x

Hi! Have you got a recommendation for a cute and stylish alarm clock? These watches are great :o)

Hi Catherine,
Funny you’re asking, because we got Sara an alarm clock for Christmas as well. We got her this retro alarm clock from PSikhouvanjou: It’s very simple and cute! (We got her the pink one, but there were more colours as well — maybe they will get them back in stock soon.)

I was going to suggest the very same one! They sell them in lots of colours at dotcomgiftshop xx
