A whole year…

Wow.  I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog.

I had no idea when I started this that we would be where we are today with our relationship.  In retrospect it seems crazy for even trying it.  But I was a bit confused at the time as I discovered things about myself and new feelings.  It’s such a relief to know that my wife can look back now and see the same thing I did that really helped us out.  She can now see that we’ve always been in a wife led marriage.  It wasn’t what it is today, but it was a WLM nonetheless. 

The only difference now is that we’ve found a way to make it fun for both of us and it has given our lives a refreshing twist.  It no longer dominates my thoughts, but that’s because it has been integrated into our daily life pretty well, I think.  Although we may not appear to be into a serious D/s relationship, we are at a level we are both comfortable with.

For example, last night I was on the computer as my wife was getting our kids ready for bed.  I heard my wife ask them, “whose job is it to help you make your beds”?  The oldest replied that it was their job.  My wife replied “yes, but it is daddy’s job to help you,  and your beds aren’t made, so daddy didn’t do his job today, did he”.

Ouch!

Now, I didn’t get into any trouble.  There is no discipline.  She didn’t bring it up again.  But the fact that she said it loud enough for me to overhear means that she cares and she was letting me know it.

True love!

In this next year I’d like to see my wife begin to do the things she tells me she wishes she were doing.  I’d like to see her become a bit more dominant in the ways she has told me she would like to be.  If I’m lucky then perhaps that will possibly lead to some of the things that I’d be interested in getting into.  Nothing too “out there”, but perhaps a little kinkier a little more often.  Small steps, you know.  This isn’t something I’ll push towards, just something I hope will develop naturally with time.  Hell, if I could go from my wife having no idea what I was talking about, to a fully accepted WLM in about nine months, just imagine what we may evolve into in the next six months!

I’d like to thank everyone for their comments and encouragement.  If it weren’t for the comments I probably would have quit writing a long time ago.  It is really amazing to me that I’ve had about 70,000 hits on this blog in the last year.  It makes me happy to know that so many people are interested in what I have to say, but it is also comforting in knowing that there are so many people out there with whom I can relate.  If there are five thousand couples in the US that are interested in some form of FLR than that is a very significant number.  That’s ten thousand people.  That’s a micro trend, and sometimes micro trends find themselves to be mainstream before they know it!
