I have one of each. My son stays up very late but when he gets tired he will brush his teeth, grab a book, and put himself to bed. No fuss at all. My daughter, on the other hand, will stay up very late if I let her but get grouchier and whinier and weirdly hyper and will NEVER put herself to bed until she completely collapses from exhaustion (after driving me and her brother nuts, of course). It's only in the past few weeks that she has finally started admitting when she's tired. Hence I usually put her to bed around 10PM with a routine of vitamin, story, brush teeth. She's allowed to look at books until she falls asleep.

Calm, I agree with the everyone else. If this is working for you and it isn't a struggle then I see no reason to change. Routines arn't bad unless they are forced upon an unwilling person.
