The sound of silence.

I certainly wouldn't say its music to my ears. The bedtime chorus of tired children and all the lovely screaming and crying that it entails is doubtful to ever become a hit musical. Although, I'm sure the sounds my screaming children could be quite comparable to some singers out there.

Sometimes the evening goes smoothly and the kids go right down, no problems. Other times, it is a battlefield of sorts. Some nights its a battle of wits. Other nights its a battle of bronze. But once the dust settles, and all have signed the peace treaty which includes the traditional exchange of hugs and kisses... and gummy bear vitamins, the sounds of peace are so great, I just have to go and check on my conquerors. I just have to make sure they are all tucked in and cozy warm.

But I have to admit, even I can be surprised at what I might find. There is such a thing as too cozy warm you know.

It's amazing that kids can sleep like that! I guess we get a bit pickier as we get olders (it takes me forever to get the blankets "just right" when I go to bed). :)
