Being Daddy's slave is the easy part, well most of the time. The mindfulness he wants mouse to more embrace is so elusive. He wants it, so why should mouse struggle with it so much? How much joy can you find in doing laundry? While Daddy was away those thoughts were far away. Now since he's home, they've returned and mouse finds herself again venturing to the deep end of her thoughts.
Asking Daddy for help quieting mouse's thoughts was the easy part, accepting his decision to return to firm rituals where mouse actively practices her submission at all times -- was not what she had in mind. If she simply wished for maintenance spankings to return, she should have asked for them. Words are that important around here, and sometimes it leaves him befuddled that mouse doesn't seem happy with his decision, after all He is. Instead, he made other changes to her chore and errand schedules.
No raising her voice, using new techniques to occupy herself and the busy baby. The chore schedule is somewhat lessened. Today, is a errand day with just a few extra chores and a large meal planned. At the end of day mouse is to be expected to be honest with him about how things went.
