Wow, I cannot believe how long it's been since I wrote. I am so sorry. We've been sick almost constantly, and it's amazing how time flies when that happens. Here's hoping that spring brings about health! :)
So today the Duke was taking on guilt over a very small issue, and something he had absolutely no control over. So I joked that he needed a spanking, and actually got a swat in before he grabbed me by the waist and spanked me. I laughingly hissed a bit loudly that my parents were in house, and they'd hear! He only laughed really hard and spanked me firmly three more times. :) Our daughter walked in and so the Duke let me go, and I jokingly told her to tell Daddy to be good. So she obediently said "Be good, Daddy." with a smile.
Just a nice light hearted moment, but I love these moments. :) The connection between us, the family dynamic, the light hearted fun, all of it. We get less of these bonding moments together as a family with my parents living with us, so I grab a hold and cherish them when we do get them. :)
