In general, when stating what time it is I’ll round up or down. If it’s 8:57 I’ll say it’s 9. If it’s 6:12 I’ll say it’s 6:10. This habit of mine drives the girls BONKERS. They are constantly correcting me. They love nothing more than to tell me “Mom, it’s not 9 it’s 8:57”.
To be honest though, doesn’t everyone do this? I can’t be the only one doing this right?
Last night in the car when I once again said it was 5:20 when it was really 5:22 Caden said to me “Mom? When you’re an adult do you have to round the time? Because you always do.”
