Duggar grandson Spurgeon Seewald is pretty bright. Whenever his mom Jessa Seewald shares about the things he says and does, fans gush over just how smart the little boy is. In Jessa’s most recent social media post, she shares about the four-year-old’s most recent naptime-stalling tactics. Anyone who has kids or has been around little ones knows that they will do anything to get out of naptime. And, it sounds like Jessa’s son is no different.
In her social media post, Jessa explains that she puts Henry, 3, down for his nap first. The boys share a room, so they giggle and chat if they try to nap at the same time. Then, once Henry is asleep, Spurgeon can go to nap. The mom of three adds that she sometimes lets Spurgeon skip his nap so he goes to bed earlier.
Then, Jessa goes on to tell a story about Spurgeon stalling to get out of naptime. She writes, “I told Spurgeon, ‘Grab a book and read for 5 minutes while Henry is falling asleep.’ I returned to find this— an entire shelf’s worth of books transferred onto the couch beside him! ‘I’m going to read ALL OF THESE BOOKS!’ he declared. 📚👦🏻”
Then, Jessa continues, “I thought he’d employed a pretty creative tactic for getting out of a nap. How could I say no to that? 🥰 And so it was, no nap for him today! We both sat on the couches reading our books while the two littles napped. Though he didn’t make it through the whole stack, he did sit quietly for a looong time looking through those books!”
The Duggar daughter goes on to say that she is impressed with Spurgeon for doing all of that reading. In the past, he’s shown interest in reading.

To nap or not to nap— that is the question. Our 4.5 yr old will still fall asleep for an afternoon nap, but that usually makes bedtime a bit later. Sometimes we skip naptime and bump bedtime up. Since the boys share a room, I often put Henry down for his nap first, and once he’s asleep, then Spurgeon goes down. This way they aren’t talking to each other or keeping each other from falling asleep. 😁 When the room is quiet, Henry usually goes to sleep pretty quickly. I told Spurgeon, “Grab a book and read for 5 minutes while Henry is falling asleep.” I returned to find this— an entire shelf’s worth of books transferred onto the couch beside him! “I’m going to read ALL OF THESE BOOKS!” he declared. 📚👦🏻 I thought he’d employed a pretty creative tactic for getting out of a nap. How could I say no to that? 🥰 And so it was, no nap for him today! We both sat on the couches reading our books while the two littles napped. Though he didn’t make it through the whole stack, he did sit quietly for a looong time looking through those books! I was impressed. When did you give up afternoon naps with your kids?
