Napping?

Just curious who's kiddos are still napping? Amelia still NEEDS a nap most afternoons. This weekend she missed naptime 2 days in a row - Saturday she fell asleep during a very loud dance recital (music was loud, LOL), today, she fell asleep during a memorial day program. Roused briefly during the 21 gun salute, and fell back asleep in Daddy's arms. She makes for a very grouchy kid if she doesn't get her nap in!! Is she the only one still napping?

Oh, I WISH Brantzen would still nap .. he stopped regular naps a year ago almost exactly .. it was once K/S were outta school and he didn't want to miss out on what they were doing. LOL

Maybe twice a week .. he'll either fall asleep or if we're in the car he'll be OUT .. but most times .. he hangs in there w/o a nap.

Kenniston might take a nap once a month or so.

Noah is the same as you and NEEDS a nap and usually will take one. Daycare helps with that as they enforce a rest period where all the kids still sleep at this point. He is NOT a happy camper w/out a nap. that being said, if he misses one here and there it is usually not a big deal and he won't sleep anywhere but his bed so we have to be home for him to nap or sleep.

Aidan still naps everyday. Every now and then he goes through a phase of fighting naps and I fear he's giving them up, but it always passes. He started preschool this year and came home exhausted everyday, sometimes falling asleep on the bus. He would usually sleep for 45-90 minutes. Now that it's summer and we're outside all day he is taking two hour naps, which is so wonderfully amazing I can't even describe it. Bedtime was 8-8:15, waking up between 6-6:30 (not by my choice!), but now that school's out, bedtime is at 9 and he is sleeping till 7:30 or 8 (which is also wonderfully amazing because he and Evan are usually super early risers and I am NOT a morning person). Maybe once every few weeks he'll miss a nap, and he does okay with it, but he definitely couldn't do it regularly.

I need him to nap, too. He is such a high energy kid, on the go from the second he wakes up, and he is incapable of entertaining himself without some kind of interaction from me, so he can be very exhausting. I hope Aidan's energy will serve him well as an adult in a productive career, AND I am very grateful Evan is a laid back kid who is content to do his own thing :o)

Trevyr stopped napping somewhere between 2 1/2 and 3...I can't even get him to have "quiet time", but he sleeps about 11-12 hours a night, but no naps for us, although Mommy definitely could use them!!
