Birthdays & punishments

"Aren't you getting a bath?"

"Yep."

"Well get to it then"

I can see what I'm in for. HoH hat on completely. I get everything ready for the next day for my school-going one and start my water. Super hot with scents and softening ingredients, he turns my water off and I get undressed. 

I don't stay in super long... But I realize I didn't bring any clothes in with me. It's still somewhat early. The kids have only been in bed for a short time. I come out of the bathroom wrapped in a big towel. He nods and gets up. 
Wait a minute.. Isn't it early? 
Nope. Everything is fine. Go ahead. He looks down at the little stool I kneel on. I'll go make sure. 
I get into my spot and wait. I expect him to have me lean up so he can climb onto the bed and me lay across him like we usually do. He walks up behind me and places his hand on my lower back, removed it, then says "You know this is punishment. It's not regular maintenance or for fun. It's because you are in trouble." 
"Yes, but it was just a minor infraction."
Smack... The weird leather strappy thing comes down harder than usual. "Two infractions."
"Oww yes, two.. But still..." Smack.. "Minor!"
"Yes. But it's still punishment."

He continues and I say ow more than once. When he feels it's enough, he stops and says "okay. Your punishment is over."
I wasn't really sure what to do.. Do I get up? Stay? I just wait a second. 
"Come in here with me" as he walks to the living room. I get up and follow him in. I go to sit beside him and he points to the floor in front of him. No, right here. 
"Which way?"
"Facing me." I get into my spot and he says "now show me some attention."
Yummmmmm. And the rest was the end of a great birthday ;) 

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

  1. Well happy birthday indeed :)

    On an aside note, when SM and I first started this part of DD, I was really unsure what he wanted me to do before, during, after maintenance or punishments. It was so embarrassing to have to ask so we sat down one day and he went through it with me and what would be expected even going so far as to define certain elements. I hated to need him to do that but once he laid it all out for me I never really had to ask again and that was a relief! (Mentioned due to your mentioning how you didn't know whether to move or not and which way to turn, etc...)

    1. We had that discussion once too. I thought he wanted me to not say ow or move around much.. Turns out I was wrong! He felt like I was disconnected when that happens. Lol. Now I can wiggle (a little!) and say ow when needed lol :)

  4. Sounds like it was a good birthday after all. :) Sorry that you were so uncertain there for a minute though, I get those too. I like Sara's idea, and may ask the Duke about it. :)

  5. Sounds like FM did have a great birthday :) I'm glad you two were able to celebrate.

    It's awful not being sure what you should so isn't it? I too like Sara's suggestion.

    Hugs,
