Life has been crazy lately. Our baby is growing and, thankfully, my wife is more than half way through the pregnancy and is feeling much better over all. My job has been crazy and super stressful lately which has led to a much higher than normal craving for diaper time, which isn't necessarily a bad thing. Of course, joking about diapers all weekend with my best friend didn't help either, which leads me to today's topic.
Last Thursday morning one of my best friends came down from the east coast for a long weekend. If you are keeping score, this is the friend who I told all about my DL side a year ago on Thanksgiving. Wow I just realized how long it's been... Was it really that long...?
Yeah, so anyway. I took a 4 day weekend and picked him up Thursday morning. It only took until Friday for the diaper references and jokes to come out. Honestly, I loved every minute of it. It feels great to have people in my life who I can be completely open with. Sometimes I wish there were more than just 3 people, but there isn't anyone else right now who I feel should know. Or maybe I should say,there isn't anyone else who would take it well and not break our friendship.
I guess you could say, you don't really know what would happen without just doing it and, while that is true, some bit of strategic planning is necessary. I definitely can't just go tell everyone because there will be negative reactions, and it will affect my life and my growing family. I will say though, it does feel easier and I feel more confident opening my self up to others. I may meet someone in the future who I want to bring into my little circle of trust but, as for now, I can't think of anyone else.
