What if I am too busy for Domestic Discipline?

I’m in a bit of trouble again. Over the past few weeks with the combination of Christmas shopping and all the activities going on in our homeschool co-op, I’ve managed to let the housework slip a bit. My husband wasn’t happy with me this morning, so I’ve spent quite a lot of time today trying to catch up. I am supposed to go to my mother’s tomorrow for my baby nephew’s first birthday party, and I’m afraid if I don’t get things back in order, he won’t let me go.

I don’t know what is going on with me. It seems like I’m having an awful time keeping my focus. I rarely require spanking, but in the past couple of months, I’ve been spanked twice and came within a gnat’s hair two or three other times. I don’t know if my husband is becoming stricter or if I’m just not doing well.

Tonight, I think I’ve gotten the house on its feet well enough that he won’t punish me, but I am concerned that my behavior seems to be on a downhill slide. I am going to have to pray I can do a better job keeping my home. After all, this is one of the most important callings of a wife and mother.

  1. I know exactly where you’re at , this happens to me around the holidays too. My husband is very forgiving at these times , he cuts me some slack and doesn’t spank me if the housework gets a little behind. He is very understanding. Don’t beat yourself up about this, you’re doing the best you can and I am sure your husband knows it,
