TOO much sleep

Okay now I realize some people would love to have this problem, but with him being #4 it creates a time issue?? Cade (4/3/08) goes to bed at around 9-9:30 and sleeps until 8. Then naps from 12:30-4:30. My 2 older kids get home from school at 4:30 and my 4 year old and I are stuck in and around the house for 4 HOURS! argh! And then by the time the boys get home it is time for homework, dinner sports and bath, bed...Does this seem like a lot of sleep?? I guess I can ask my ped at his 2 yr check up, but I just do not remember my other 3 sleeping for longer then 2-3 hours for a nap!
Thoughts? I do like him sleeping until 8 b/c it gives me time to feed my older boys breakfast, get their lunches packed... Do I just suck it up and wait it out? Maybe I should try waking him up early from his nap and put him down earlier???
TIA for any input!

What a problem! LOL I completely understand though. I feel like I can never get out of the house b/c someone is always napping. I'd say put him to bed earlier at night, but if you want him to sleep till 8 so you can get the big kids out the door-that's totally understandable...but MAYBE if you wake him early from his nap he'll go to bed earlier at night and STILL sleep till 8. Win-win! :) IDK worth a try maybe? GL and let us know what you decide and KUP on how it goes!
