Re: What time to do your kids go to bed?
We start the bedtime routine at 7:30 and it's lights out by 8 at the latest. My youngest is 15 months old and usually she doesn't fall asleep until 8:30 and needs a glass of water and some snuggle time before she'll go to sleep. They wake up around 7-7:30 in the morning. DD doesn't nap, DS takes a nap sometimes around 2, and DD2 naps from noon to 2.
Edit: I'm 24 also, so not an old fuddy duddy either, my kids just need their rest to function and be happy during the day. It's better for their health and for their behavior so that's how we do it. I don't understand why some parents will let their young kids stay up until 11, their kids must be terrors the next day. Not to mention, after the kids go to bed is my only "me" time, and my only time with DH.
