As I sit here watching the World Poker Tour on TV, I keep hearing children running in and out of their rooms. All three have come down for band-aids at some point in the last hour.

We have an 8-year-old (K) and 4-1/2-year-old twins (J&L) and on school nights we try to get them all in bed at 8:00.

Yet lately, I find them pushing the limits on an almost nightly basis. So far tonight, I've threatened the loss of TV and computer...and the oldest even got threatened with a swat on the butt if we have anymore problems tonight. (Hey...I got spanked and I survived...we don't do it often I can assure you.)

For those of you with elementary and pre-school kids...what time do you put them to bed??? And do you have these issues too?
