Monday Morning Question of the Day

As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?
(Did you achieve that dream? If you didn't- why not?)

  1. When I was a kid, I wanted to be a writer.
    Have I achieved that?
    Well, I write. Does that make me a writer? Or does finishing a book make a person a writer. Or getting published?
    Well, I write. I have written a book. I am still trying to get it published!

  2. I wanted to be a teacher. Sadly I did not finish college. However, I do "teach" Jr Youth at church and a Parenting Bible Study.

    So I guess my question is the same as Shana...Does that count?

  3. I wanted to be a doctor or a teacher. I guess being a homeschool teacher fits in there somehow, huh?

  4. I wanted to be a peditrician. I settled for Radiology instead. Didn't want to do that much college!

  5. I think I wanted to be a little bit of everything. What I most wanted was to be a professional ballerina and take care of my daddy when I grew up. I also wanted to be a teacher, a writer and a psychologist. I didn't want to get married and have children, not out of being some weirdo or unloving, but because I was afraid of being hurt and getting divorced like my parents, and all the stuff I heard about having babies scared me to death! Go figure I went on to deliver all three of my babies naturally!
    I am a SAHM and it is the best decision I have ever made! My life didn't turn out how I pictured it, but it is even better.

  6. I wanted to be a nurse.. and that's exactly what I am.. Many parts of my life aren't how I saw them, but the main thing is.. and it's a perfect fit.

  7. I wanted to be married only once. Look how that turned out. Ugh. But live and learn and be happy the second time around, right?

  8. I wanted to be a Mom- which I managed 3 times- & an actress; I did have one paid acting job when I was in high school, so I guess I'd say yes :-)

  9. I wanted to be a vet... didn't quite work out that way. Oh well. C'est la vie.

  10. When I was really little, I wanted to be Miss America.
    Then, in high school, I wanted to be a teacher.
    I did not become either one - I am a nurse. I did it because I needed the best paying job for the least amount of college education at the time. Time was of the essence for me, because I was was a young single mother.
    I've never regretted becoming a nurse. I didn't choose that profession, it chose me!

  11. I wanted to be a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader, a veternarian and a teacher when I was a kid. Well, obviously the cheerleader thing didn't happen - don't really have the body for the skimpy outfit. ; ) The vet thing lost is shine about middle school and after many detours along the way, I did become a teacher! Woohoo! So, glad I did. What a cool idea for a post!
