I love you with all my heart. A spanking, even a punishment will not change that. It will only strengthen us. You have seen that in the past. It will help both of us. Just because I don't agree doesn't mean you can't push. If you insist, I will submit. You made a rule and I broke it. Even if I think it should be an exception to rule, you are probably right and I am wrong.
So what if I get mad at you? Isn't pouting against the rules too? You have threatened to spank for pouting before. My bottom won't break of you spank me twice in day. I have safe words and you know when I start to panic. Wait a bit and let me calm down, then get my backside!
I depend on you for so very much. You deserve my very best. When I fall short of your expectations you have some powerful tools in your hands. I would never love you any less for using those tools to redden my backside.
It is too cold in the garage? You have spanked me over jeans before and if I get too cold that might just be a little encouragement not to do disappoint you again.
Owch that hurts! Well... isn't it supposed to hurt?
I don't deserve it this time? Oh? What is different about this time? It is against the rules. Who gets to decide if it is an exception to the rule or not? Apparently I wasn't a very good judge of my behavior to begin with. That is why it is a rule.
You are tired from work? Now that I do understand. My punishment doesn't have to be a punishment for you too. Lines? Corner time? What would please you? Your naked wife curled up in your arms? That works too.
This is the part where I submit to you. So why am I writing this? Seeing your shoulders drop when I get defiant. That breaks my heart but I keep doing it. I know you can't force my submission any more than I can force your dominance.
I promise to do better. The next time I earn a punishment, when you call me on bad behavior, I will do my very best to not argue myself out of it. I will do my very best to be an adult and accept the consequences for my actions.
