Noah just came in wearing two watches–almost 2nd grade appropriate. I had to de-geek him and ask him to wear only one watch. I had him remove The Simpson’s watch since it talks and makes lots of noise. Noah has enough problems with talking in school without a watch to help him.
Does anyone remember synchronizing watch alarms in school? I think it was probably high school but the digital watchs had become fashionable…oh man! remember those red led numbers? (that was probably middle school)…and I clearly recall leading people to set the alarms to all go off at a certain time during class. It was like a guaranteed moment of silence and starring from the teacher.
