NIGHTTIME=NICETIME for spouses who enforce a child's bedtime

Question

We have a 9 yo girl and 7 yo boy. Bedtime is usually supposed to be at 8pm. In the last several months, both of them, though mainly our daughter, has slowly pushed that back to 9, sometimes 10pm, because they have to keep using the bathroom, both pee and bowel movements. This is getting out of hand with sometimes up to 5 trips. We are about to start the ticket system for some other behaviors, but I'm not sure this would be effective for that since it's taking place right before and after bedtime. Both are generally good kids, but obviously are not getting the sleep they need. Any advice for non ticket and ticket system? Thank you
