What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?

My three boys had a conversation with hubby and me last night about what they want to be when they grow up:

Kindergartner: Rocketship guy

2nd grader: Pain-in-the-ol-ogist (He likes dinosaurs,.. A LOT)

5th grader: A priest so he doesn't have to get married.

Then my mom brought up what I wanted to be when I was around 1st grade. I remember finding a peice of paper stating I wanted to drive a red convertible and be a librarian. She remembers the the car, but says I wanted to be a babysitter.

Well, it seems like I've pretty much achieved my goals, mother of five and a writer for a software company, not bad. Still working on the convertible, even if hubby says the 4 Runner we purchased right before we first got married qualifies. (NOT). Be careful what you wish for!

Laughing at a convertible on a librarian's salary.

I wanted to be a ballerina when I was really little. Then a jockey. As I got older, an attorney. A high school aptitude test said ad exec first and floral designer second. Boy oh boy - talk about setting me up for confusion before declaring a major! I majored in journalism and English, my career (5 years) was full-time ministry and I now raise children and ignore dirty bathrooms!
