Bathroom Renovation???

So, I've been comtemplating the pros and cons of sound-proofing the bathroom.
I admit that if it were sound-proofed, I wouldn't be able to hear what my children were doing outside the door, and there might be an emergency (occuring in all of two minutes time), or I might get carried away with the sheer silence of it all and accidentally stay in there for a few hours.
The incident that got me thinking along these lines went something like this...
(Kids are playing in their room. Mommy enters bathroom and closes the door. Mommy sits)
Clomp, Clomp, Clomp (Speep coming downstairs)
Knock Knock Knock
Speep: Mommy? Are you in there?
Mommy: Yes
Speep: What are you doing?
Mommy: Going to the bathroom.
Speep: I wanna tell you sumsing.
Mommy: I'll be out in just a minute.
Clomp Clomp Clomp (Apple coming downstairs)
Knock Knock Knock
Apple: Mommy?
Mommy: Just a minute please
Apple: Can I ask you something?
Mommy: Yes, When I come out.
Apple: Ok, I want to know if we can have a snack.
Mommy: (to self) grrrrr

To sound-proof or not, you be the judge.
