Weekly Recap: August 19th - 25th


  Learning Domestic Discipline continues to move onward and upward as we enter the final week of August.  It's hard to believe that summer is winding down and fall is just around the corner.  Well..that's true for those of us in the United States, anyway.  We're looking forward to exciting things here at LDD to wrap up the remainder of 2013!

  Speaking of exciting things, we have a lot to catch you up on if you happened to miss anything this past week.  We have two big announcements to share, too!  Here's a recap of the week that was at Learning Domestic Discipline.


Mailbag Monday: Week 18 - We talk about working with an HoH that has recently lost their motivation to lead, working domestic discipline around a demanding traveling schedule, and whether or not a couple in an FLR would be welcome and/or comfortable coming the the LDD Retreat in this week's trio of Mailbag Monday questions.

Beginning Domestic Discipline: 5 Common Mistakes & How to Avoid Them - LDD is nearly two and a half years old now, and in that time we've noticed many common mistakes/challenges that couples relatively new to the lifestyle struggle with.  We address those things and offer ways to work through them in this week's Wednesday post.

Saturday Stories: "You Can't Turn A Teacher Off" - A fellow member of the domestic discipline blogging community shares how domestic discipline became a part of her marriage and how the entire DD dynamic works for her and her husband in LDD's latest Saturday Stories article.

  The first ever LDD Retreat will be held in Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge, TN in the month of JUNE!!!  Thank you to all who voted for the LDD Retreat dates!  The next step is registration, and we'll have the details on registration in the upcoming weeks.  Keep an eye out for that.

  We encourage those interested in the LDD Retreat to read the retreat information page.  We also ask that you hold off on your questions about registering for the retreat as they will likely be answered when the registration page goes live.  Thank you in advance.
  • On a personal note, this past Wednesday we had our gender ultrasound!  We wanted to wait a few days to announce the gender of our forthcoming baby on the blog to ensure all of our family members heard the news directly from us rather than Twitter or our domestic discipline blog.  We know a lot of you have been patiently (and not-so-patiently) waiting to know the gender, so without further delay...

We're having a baby BOY!!!

  Thank you all so very much for your congratulations and well wishes.  We're so excited to be parents again, and we cannot wait to welcome our second baby boy to this world.  It won't be too much longer now! :) 

  That wraps things up for this unusually long Weekly Recap.  We look forward to next week, and we hope you do as well!  Enjoy your final week of August everyone!

Mailbag Monday: Week 17 - We answer questions about working domestic discipline around a demanding work schedule (not to mention kids in the house), whether or not deliberately breaking rules is a good way to challenge an inconsistent HoH, and we talk about how we established the rules for our marriage in this week's round of Mailbag Monday questions.

Five Things Friday: Powerful Message Edition - We share a very thought-provoking blog post from a fellow domestic discipline blogger, we share a powerful texting while driving documentary video, and we explain why this upcoming Wednesday is a life-changing day in our family in this week's Five Things post.
