At age 16, my son got a job in Mother's, an Italian style restaurant.

After 16 years, he has now left a job at East Side Marios, an Italian style restaurant.

This is going to feel very strange for both of us. No calls at all hours with work related questions, no going in for alarms in the middle of the night, no calls from the boss to ensure certain things were done, no fixing the plumbing or leaks, no working or training on your days off, no working until 2 a.m. and due back in at 7 a.m. and so many other things that were considered just part of doing his job well.

Monday starts the new job for a training company and entails work from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. with every weekend off. The hours alone are a major change. He is also getting involved in selling financial products which has been a growing interest for him in the last few years.

I am so pleased he has decided to do what feels right for him. Am also very sure he will do very well in his choosen fields.

And if not -- he can always go back to a restaurant. (Can say that here as he doesn't read my blog.)
