Riddle me this

My daughters and I have developed a night routine where they get into bed, then I ask them several riddles before they go to sleep. Inevitably, they always ask for one more riddle when I tell them to go to sleep.

Tonight I relented and gave them one more. “It’s ten o’clock. What time is it?”

Lucy went literal: “Ten o’clock.”

Me: “No.”

Kathleen tried a classic: “Time to get a new clock, because it’s not ten o’clock?”

Me: “Nope.”

Girls: “Fine what time is it?”

Me: “I gave you your extra riddle, so it’s bed time! Now get to sleep.”

Katheleen: “That wasn’t EVEN a riddle!”

Lucy: “We’ll get you for this in the morning.”

Honestly, I don’t know how they didn’t see it coming.
