I don't know that there's really a specific thing that's easy to pin down. Generally, it's some combination of restlessness and distraction (which seem pretty thoroughly related) which come up for me. Whether it manifests as grabbing to play with my phone, fidgeting to get more comfortable, or something else, it always seems related to some desire for a greater sense of comfort through some means of "escape".

I come to feel like a simple little child.
That is a good thing.

Are there any times, activities, or other objects that remind or cue you to meditate? An alarm? A routine? A feeling?

Well for me, meditation is all about routines. Every morning I wake up, have a bowl of cereal, and then sit down to meditate. I don't think about it.
Every day around noon I go for a walk. To fit more time to meditate into my day, I take that as an opportunity to pause everything and stay with my breath as I walk.
