The best entertainment ever

Tim got a birthday card that plays music, and he's had a great time listening to it over...and over...and over...

The kids have been playing games with it like hide-and-seek and train (the person holding the card is the engine and when the music stops the train stops). But today the card stopped working. I suggested to Tim that maybe it needed to rest. :) :)

So he decided that it needed to rest for 10 minutes, until 5pm. He and Alex promptly went in the living room to wait for the card to finish resting (Tim actually laid down on the couch with it) while they watched the clock.

The clock in the living room is over a big arched doorway. After about 5 minutes of waiting, the boys were ready for it to be five o'clock.

So they decided they could maybe "help" the clock get to 5pm.

By jumping.

So they stood under the archway and jumped, taking turns. Then they'd look excitedly at the clock saying "Look! It moved! It's closer to five o'clock!"

Yes, they really did this for 5 WHOLE MINUTES.

Now what I want to know is if I could convince them to help "move" the clock for an hour?? :)
