I don't know if there is anyone out there who actually reads my blog, but if there is I really need some help.

Perhaps I am being a bit dramatic.  It is not life threatening but it could threaten my relationship with Vincent and after my kids that is the most important thing in my life.  

My kids are on spring break next week and the weather here has been beautiful so I have taken some "me" time this week.  Just walking in the sunshine and thinking about everything or nothing at all.  It was wonderful but my mental train took me down a track that has me really worried.

I realized that this whole DD thing with me and Vincent is being guided by me.  I am not yelling, sulking, or creating walls between us anymore, but I have now learned more subtle methods.  I am steadily and very subtly guiding what rules we make, what punishment happens, when it happens and even how.  What is even worse is that I am subtly molding him into the HOH that I think he should be.

I truly didn't realize that I had been doing this.  That wasn't my intention in any way.  I truly wanted to give him the control and let him be the head.  Now I don't know what to do or where to go from here.  Do I tell him?  Do we have to trash the whole thing now? Can this ever work for us where it is truly him leading and not me?  How do I trust myself now that I know I can control situations so subtly I don't even know I am doing it?




  1. I sent you a message. Don't worry too much just sit and talk with
    Vincent about what he would like and then do your best to let him lead.

    It takes time to build a blogger following. Sorry you haven't had many visitors
    yet. You can try adding tags to see if that helps but really the best way
    to get better acquainted is to keep commenting on other's blogs so they will get
    to know you.

  2. It can be frustrating to blog and not get much back, but try to make this a journey for yourself and worry less about others. They will come. :D

    I had the same realization at the beginning and to a degree still, but that usually doesn't happen unless DH is not able to give me what I need. Life, kids, winter all have caused this, but we always find back to the right dynamic.
