My little oven timer

Do all children come with a built-in over timer, or is mine just weird?

Every single time I try to bake something -- no matter what it is, no matter how long it's in for, no matter what new calamity is bringing the house down around our ears while it's baking -- my dear, frustrating little boy never fails to be in my arms, just on the verge of falling asleep but still fussing, when the timer goes off.  Every time.  It's been two and a half months!

He could be sound asleep when a batch of cookies goes in for 12 minutes or wide awake and happily playing on the floor when banana bread goes in for an hour and a half; he will still be barely awake, needing to be held, when the timer goes off.  It's unreal... how does he do it?
