It's like he's almost a teenager... when he wants quiet time, he gets the CD player and his headphones and sits in the big chair away from the rest of us. Yes, yes, he looks hard. But that's actually Baby Einstein lullabies that he's listening to, and he knows that if he turns it up past level 4 (you know, to rock out to Chopin and Mozart), we put it away. He follows the rules because he loves his headphones. And we don't mind the few minutes of quiet time that it affords us!
