I bought Sam this alarm clock today.
It is dual purpose: we use the clock to show him when he will be allowed to do things like watch the Mario Bros. Super Show (as well as to show him when it is time to stop doing things like watching the Mario Bros. Super Show) and we are working on telling time. Obviously these are related.
When we got home I put batteries in the clock and showed him the alarm. HE LOVES IT. In fact, we had to banish him to the bedroom. Because he won’t turn it off.
OH MY GOD IT IS SO LOUD.
Fun fact: Sam can’t say the L sound. Think about that.
