Welcome to Day 2. This has proven to be quite the learning experience for my wife. On the way to pick up one of our children, she read and answered a text message. HUGE RULE BROKEN! She came home, told me what she did, we discussed why she did it, and I decided the driving privileges were revoked until I go to work this weekend. This was met with a bunch of pouting and "bargaining". I kind of let that slide considering this is only day 2 and told her to let it go or I will increase the punishment. Luckily for her, she calmed down. Later in the day she also went over on the spending budget without asking, this resulted in some whacks on her bottom.
I think she is surprising herself at the amount of rules she has already broken. I do appreciate the honesty she has in telling me she texted while driving. I think I am a fair HoH, and in turn she is completely honest.
After dinner, we had a short discussion about the day and the results of the actions. We had a great evening again and woke up feeling refreshed.
Thanks for reading.
