A few months ago, just after we moved here, Kait decided she was done with not having any money and started putting in applications at pet stores hoping to get a job as a trainer or groomer or anything else where she would be in frequent contact with dogs. She ended up getting a job selling lemonade and chicken everything at a local Chick-Fil-A restaurant where dogs aren’t even allowed. Turns out she crazy loves selling chicken all day long.
She had 6 interviews and out of 300 applicants that month was one of only two people hired and after 8 weeks on the job she is already being groomed for a coordinator position because she’s freaking amazing.
I like to think silently to myself, and out loud sometimes, that she owes her brilliance to me. That it was most certainly my raising of her that made her this way and she had better bring me home some grilled chicken nuggets and some waffle fries to thank me for all the sweat and tears that went into the job of raising such an great person. And often.
You think I’m kidding but no. At least not about the nuggets and fries.
The day of the 5th interview, the one where they said they were ready to hire her, she got a call from Pet Smart to start the interview process to train as a groomer. It was a bittersweet day because she had to make the tough choice to not pursue the Pet Smart job.
I don’t think she has regretted that decision for a moment.
And neither have I because chicken nuggets and waffle fries, people. Hello?
Plus, we probably would have missed out on this:
A tour of the Chick-Fil-A kitchen with Papa and Grandma-neese.
Were we all dressed up like cows and got free food on Cow Day. It took a couple of days to create the masks but we got close to $70 in free food. It was a good day.

And now I have redeemed myself by posting about Kait and her job and how amazing she is so I can move on to write about other things. Like how we have a 3 and a half foot lizard roaming the house because he figured out how to break out of his cage.
Yeah. That post is coming.
