What time to do your kids go to bed?

Ok I am tired of getting snarky remarks for my kids bedtime so I am just wondering what time your your little kids (5 and under is what I am dealing with right now) go to bed?

The story:
both of our kids go to bed at 7:30. My daughter is 4 1/2 and my son is 15 months. We start our bedtime routine at 7:30 and they are in bed with the lights out before 8pm. They get up at 7:30 or 8 am. my son takes 2 naps 10 to noon and 2 to 4 and my DD takes a daily "rest" time from 2 to 4. Everyone around us seems to let their kids be up until 10 or 11 but that just is not for us. I go to bed around 11 for goodness sakes. SO why does it seem that people (esp younger parents) just let their kids stay up so late? I am 24 by the way so I am not like an old fudy duddy
Though we have the courage to raise our daughters more like our sons, we've rarely had the courage to raise our sons like our daughters. -Gloria Steinem
