Having children, there is one word that I use a lot. It also happens to be the one word I am flat out not allowed to say to Alpha.
Oh sure, I say it sometimes in that "putting my foot down so I can pick it right back up" kind of way. More of a joke than anything.
But "no" is never a response to "I want to fuck you." Not for a very long time anyways.
I'm never "on" in the middle of the night. And for the most part, he just lets me sleep. Something I am very grateful for.
I was exceptionally tired. He had been snarking at me for a while (pain plus pain-killers equals a horrid combination for snarkiness), and I had been up with the kids numerous times.
And I said no.
We had miniature clashes throughout the morning. Then came to the agreement that he's been snarky and I am excessively sensitive. Though he made sure I knew it wasn't going to slide. Really, I expect nothing less.
I had a moment of insanity perhaps?
I can't remember the last time I said no to him.
But I'm betting I'll remember this one.
