I don't think anything is wrong, but...

A parent made a comment about my kids sleeping schedule. It started with an inquiry to their ages - 2.5 and 4 and then she said, innocently enough, that I must never get any sleep now that most kids those ages don't nap.

I replied that they are pretty solid sleepers and nap everyday usually from 12 - 2. DS1 varies in that he usually wakes up after 1 hour and 15 mins and every two weeks or so he will just skip sleeping and play quietly. At night they sleep from 7pm to 5:30am. Her response was "Really? I don't think that is normal at all. I can't imagine two little boys sleeping so much. You should let your pediatrician know."

I'm not drugging them. If they don't get naps and a solid night of sleep, you can definitely tell in their behavior. Is that amount of time grossly inappropriate? I have always thought it was okay.
