Actually wasn't going to post today, but had the extra time.
Once a month, Daddy has this little pen-like thing to measure the air in mouse's tires. It probably has a technical name other than pen-like thing. Guess its important because the third week of each month, rain or shine he's checking it out. Daddy then pops the hood and checks stuff (really no clue what).
Daddy said its what you do to make sure things are well maintained. We discussed the word "maintenance" not only regarding to household chores and duties, but also on our relationship. Recently, with him being busy with work, it seems mouse was beginning to feel a tad pushed aside. Yes, there are, at times, other people or things that are more important. Our children, extended family, etc, all at times feel like we wait in line -- with mouse always it seems giving everyone cuts.
Now for those of you unfamiliar with the term "cuts" it means skipping ahead in line.
Last month Daddy mentiioned...well oh dear that's not right...see mouse had been reading a blog (possibly The Dish with Ward and June or another blog -- really not certain) where maintence spankings were mentioned. It's a topic that does come up...and one we've tried it in the past. Still, with Daddy's hectic schedule, kids and family it's really no wonder that mouse was feeling a bit pushed aside. His free time is limited and nothing EVER goes as planned!
So, Daddy said for the whole month of May, mouse will be getting spanked twice per day. Each morning and night. He wants mouse to be honest on how it effects her -- is the effect calming? After 30 days, we'll stop and see how mouse does without it. His reasons are simple, clear and honest.
- He loves a good experiment and knows women are individual. Some respond well to maintenance spankings, while others it doesn't matter.
- He wants to see if it helps even mouse out because he knows all too well a balanced mouse is a happy mouse.
- Let's face it, we also enjoy any excuse for the science that allows us playtime.
- One thing Daddy is curious to see if maintenance affects mouse so that *corrections or punishments occur with less frequency.
*It should be mentioned harsh punishments are rare for us. But what Daddy refers as corrections do occur more often -- a strongly worded rebuke from him or a face slap are common ways he will get mouse's attention.
