Hi my friends , this post is about our children that we are raising and what they want to become when they are in this world , on there own , and making a living. I am a single dad with a 13 year old son now for the last 5 years . I started bringing him to work with me at age 4 ( we had our own restaurant for awhile ) and he has always been a very good worker . In all the kitchens I have worked since I have always brought him in to help whenever the chance happened . I have also involved him in many offsite catering events during these years . During the last couple of years he has been helping me do small BBQs for about 300 to 400 people during the warm months . To be truthfull he is of more help to me than my own staff . He just knows what I want and does it . He does prep in the kitchen as well as taking out the trash with the same ammount of heart . He is so customer service oriented and yes this makes me proud . Last year he told me he wanted to be a chef when he is grown because he told me how else can you help people so well but by giving them good home cooked food with love ? I might be selfish but I hope his thoughts and feelings stay the same throughout his life . My father was an Air Traffic Controller and he also took me to work several times trying to get me interested in sitting in front of a raidar screen and talking to airplanes so that I could follow in his footsteps . I could never imagine myself as that ! So what do your children want to be ? Clear skies , Doug.........
