We are not High Protocol, not by any stretch, and there are very few rules. But recently one has been added; every night when it was time for bed I would find her hair brush on my side of the bed and so a new rule was born. If the hairbrush is on the bed at bedtime it will be used to deliver a spanking. She has been (mostly) very good about following this rule, she forgot over the Xmas holiday. Currently we have the kids around and a tween girl sleeping over so the punishment has been postponed. So instead of starting the New Year off with a bang, we are starting it with a spank!
