Right now it's silent in my living room. Toy Story is playing, and even though it's about five minutes to bedtime, they're both completely rapt and into it. They got to have ice cream on the floor, and they're watching peacefully. This sort of quiet really only happens when they're in bed sleeping, so peace and quiet while they're awake is a treasure for sure.
At least until I tell them it really is time to go to bed.
