    My DD is 3.5 and DS is 10 months.

    DD is in bed between 7 and 7:30 and DS between 7:30 and 8:30 (depending how long it takes me to get him to sleep)

    I've always got cooking, cleaning up, toys to put away, paperwork to file, clothing to fold after that but rarely do any of it. I like my quiet time.

    Usually I'm in bed between 9:30 and 10:30 as I'm up 2-6 times a night to DS.

    I find though that I stay up until 10:30/11 if I've had a rough day and have only gotten DS down at 8:30, as I'm not ready to give up on the day and start the next day 'sooner'

    On that note it's been a good day but DS is sick and has me up for a 2 hour party at some point over the last 5 nights so I'm off to bed now at 10:15.

    Nearly 2 year old 830. We've tried earlier and it doesn't work. At 830 there is no fight, no getting out of bed for random things etc literally tuck into bed, lights out and she rolls into her pillow and drifts off. I'm exhausted ( I'm pregnant ) so I go to bed the same time.
    I work full time, don't get home until 5ish then it's straight into dinner prep. I enjoy the fact I get a few hours with her ( because she goes to bed later). As for cleaning I do that whilst she's awake, she "helps". Big clean is then on weekends

    You guys are not alone. I have a 5 yr old and a 2 yr old. The older one goes to bed at 7, but the younger one, since she takes a regular nap at 1pm until 2pm, sleeps around 8 to 8:30. After that, I have to squeeze in as much as I can before I fall on my face by 11 or 11:30, sometimes at midnight. By 5:30 the next day, I have to be up and about to get the day started. Sometimes, I don't know if it is lack of time management or 24 hours is really not enough for a mom.

    2yo here and he's doing 7.15-7.30 to 7. He's been doing that for a very long time, basically since he was 8mo.

    One 3yo here and she goes to bed quite early, 6:30-7. So I have a bit of time to get dishes done, quickly scoop toys up off the floor etc, but I don't put too much pressure on myself and you shouldn't either! They are little for such a short space of time. I can't imagine how chaotic it must be with three, but go easy on yourself

    I have a 2 year old who goes bed around 7-7.30. The only housework I normally do after that is to clean up the kitchen. I have a cleaner which makes it easier but I'm basically lazy and just want to sit down and relax.

    Ds is 17 months. He goes to bed between 8-830. He's pushed later so he at least gets a little time with his dad when he finishes work otherwise I'd probably let him sleep earlier. He's happy though. Once he goes to bed I clean the lounge room - all the toys. I don't bother picking them up during the day anymore. Clean up after dinner. Anything else that needs to be done. I plod around during the day cleaning little things so I have a bit less to do at night. Usually in bed between 930 and 10. Dp sometimes stays up and does the kitchen and toys if I'm tired and want to sleep. We spend some time together before I go to bed and watch what we want to on TV.

    Default What time do your kids go to bed?

    We have a 3y, 5y, 6y olds, our 3y & 5y go to bed at 7, our 6y also goes to bed at 7 but is allowed to go on the iPad until 7.30/8.

    6 year old. 8pm
    10 and 8 year 8-8:30pm though my 8 year old often doesn't get to sleep til 9 or 10pm
    15 month old 10pm. He sleeps 10 hours most nights so I'm not too worried that he has a late bed time. When he was younger I used to be able to put him to bed at 7 and he'd sleep til 5am (so 10 hours) then I'd bring him into bed with me and give him a bottle and he would sleep another two hours but these days not so much and I don't want my day starting at 5!

    My 8 year old has always been a late night sleeper too so maybe my 1 year old will be too. They each get 10-12 sleep each night anyway so it doesn't bother me too much.
