It was an extremely hard spanking, as expected. There was no floating away to subspace. It just sucked with additional humbling enhancements.
We re-connected and as I started to lay my head on my pillow, I noticed my phone screen flashing. The child needed picked up. Since I was specifically being cried for, I headed out. By the next evening, we'd learned a few important lessons.
- Do not skip aftercare.
- Do not drive freshly spanked. That was the most miserable drive of my life. Being miserable after a spanking is really frustrating when you're by yourself and the HOH isn't holding you.
- Do not sleep in the same bed with a wiggly small child when nearly every inch of your body is sore and exhausted.
- Not sleeping after a hard spanking and adventurous sex will result in the worst subdrop of your life.
- Exhausted and emotional with a full day ahead is a great way to work yourself into another pickle.
Life just happens sometimes, but we have a very real understanding of the need to be well-rested and follow up with rest when any kind of power exchange happens. So even though just 48 hours ago I took a pretty hard spanking, we're heading back to the basement tonight to clear my head and get back into the groove we know works well.
