My. Kids being on routines don't mean get less cuddles, it doesn't mean they don't get EVERYTHInG they need whenever they need it just because they sleep 7-7.
You're a pretty easy going go-with-the flow person (I don't mean that in a negative way). I sort of admire the way that you have a big day nap with your kids and do family stuff late in the evening. Is it possible that you have gravitated towards friends with similar parenting philosophies and lifestyles and that there is a possible connection between that and the kids sleep habits?

I clearly remember thinking that my first son slept well because of my amazing skill as a parent and my flawless routine. Hahahaha. The universe decided to give me a big fu with my second and third child and they both had me crashing back to earth. Some kids are naturally bad sleepers no matter what you do - even if you try and use the same awesome routine with each child.
I should disclose that I am unwilling to leave my child to cry themselves to sleep. I know that it might solve a problem or two for me if I were to be comfortable doing this but I'm not willing to and thus I am happy to wear that bad sleepers for the time being. I don't believe that to be a reasonable solution.
