3 hours

Ruby looked at some little buds along the sidewalk, crouched down, and declared that "these flowers will bloom in THREE HOURS." It's gone from narration to prophecy.

It's really interesting to see her development in terms of her sense of time. I think she understands yesterday and tomorrow, but how long that is in comparison to weeks or hours is completely wonky. It's really lovely to watch someone that is so completely in the here and now. The drama is ridiculous, but there's something really pure about someone who has no sense of perspective.
