Hez over at Love and Submission posted a really good question yesterday:
What is your definition/meaning/role of an Hoh?
The minute I read it, I texted Fireman. It was too good not to ask immediately. Plus, there's no way I'd remember to ask him in 5 hours after he got home from work, lol. Hez requested the HoH give their answer, too. I knew he'd help out.
A short 15 minutes after I texted her question to him, I had the response.
*I think HoH is, the leader of the pack, the pater familia, ceo and coo of the family organization. He is the go-to individual for all things. He sets the rules, limitations, and breaks all ties. In many circumstances, too many "chiefs" create disorganization. HoH is THE cheif, the one and only. It's his responsibility to after all, to make sure everything with "his" house is as it should be. Not that he can't delegate, but everything ultimately falls back on him.*
I agreed with his statements. I think we all have heard two people can't drive the car. I just wonder is it 51/49? Is it 60/40? 70/30? Does any of that matter? I kind of think maybe it doesn't.. but I don't know.
All I know is, I couldn't have picked a better HoH for me. I'm lucky. We've been on this journey for going on 5 months. While that's just a small amount of time in the big scheme of things, it's made a huge difference for us.
