Boss of me     

Posted by Katherine Putnam on November 30th, 2010

“You’re not the boss of me now, you’re not the boss of me now, you’re not the boss of me now and you’re not so big…”

Over the Thanksgiving weekend Chris and I had our first official, sit-down, pre-marital counseling session with the Strands. They had sent us a few books to start on prior to Thanksgiving; over the past month we’ve been working steadily through a book of 100 questions (which has been pretty fun and helpful thus far). Anywho. I enjoyed our time with the Strands, and I look forward to continuing our counseling with them.

We also used the long car rides to and from NY to tackle a few of the 100 questions; however, we did tend to rabbit trail down some rather tangential paths. (<-- And verbally redundant, apparently.) One trail started with us discussing what we would be "in charge of." We established that, while we would obviously strive to work together in all things, we each have different strengths and interests and should utilize those in our home and marriage. The aforementioned trail ended with Chris suggesting we create official titles for our domestic jobs. Here's what we came up with:

Chris:

Master and Commander of the Family (Yes. I do desire for my husband to be the head of the household. And yes, I do realize that I will have to keep my bossy nature in check to help make that desire a reality. It’s a process that will definitely require a lot of prayer.)
Chief Financial Officer
Co-Director of Arts and Entertainment


 
 

Katie:

Vice President in Charge of Household Management
Vice President in Charge of Nutrition
Administrative Assistant in Charge of External Affairs
Co-Director of Arts and Entertainment


 
 

Enjoy.

 
Cheers,

Katherine Elyse
