Libby Forsmark | 2 comments I believe I read this book between 2009 and 2012 (when I was in 2nd to 5th grade).It was about a group of siblings who lived in a cottage on a beach and their father had taught them how to tell what time it was based on the position of the sun. The older brother always had different girlfriends that the other kids did not like. When the family cat had kittens, the little boy said if the cat had had the kittens in the oven (or perhaps the cat did have the kittens in the oven), the girlfriend would have thought they were muffins. This lead to the family's inside joke of calling dense people something like "muffins," I can't remember the exact insult. Unfortunately I cannot remember the main plot, only these details.
