When I was little my parents told me I could grow up to be anything I wanted. I did not understand that this excluded inanimate objects. Therefore, the first thing I remember wanting to be when I grew up was a motorcycle.

I was so captavated by the Oriental Clothing and how beautiful the Geisha were, that I told my Mom that when I grew up I was going to be Chinese.
(she had to rethink that whole "you can be anything you want to be when you grow up speech, as we are Irish and Italian) LOL

I was determined to be Ariel from The Little Mermaid. I wanted a big house with a moat, so I could live on land, but still swim. EVERY YEAR I dressed up as Ariel for halloween...and still do.

As a really young little girl I used to tell people that I wanted to be a flower when I grew up. I just wasn't sure what color I wanted to be. When I was finally told that I couldn't be a flower I decided I would be Tarzan instead.

When I was little, my family was talking about cars and my dad asked me what kind of car I wanted when I was older. I said, "I want a cloud car!" (from Care Bears...)

I also wanted to be a mermaid when I grew up.

Still waiting for that cloud car...

When I was around 5, I thought that we all grew up to be animals. I told my Mom that I was going to be a horse. You see, I believed my Dad when he told me I had horse's blood in me. (Never mind the fact that my parents were grown up and THEY hadn't turned into animals)

When I was about 4 I believed that when I grew up I would turn into a boy and become batman.
I also walked around with a plastic batman mask until it literally fell apart.

As a child my parents always encouaged me, saying that I could be whatever I wanted to be when I grew up. I was amazed by this and thought about it for a long time. When people asked what I wanted to be, I'd answer, proudly, a tiger!

I knew our cats had it so much better than my parents. They got petted and didn't have to work. But I wanted to be bigger and meaner so I could bite my little brother. I thought after I finished high school I would be able to turn into a tiger.

When I was about 4 or 5 years old, I was in Kindergarten and my teacher was asking all of us what we wanted to be when we grew up. Everyone was saying Doctor, Ballerina, Fireman ect. until I stood up proudly and said "I want to be a Tiger!" All my class mates started chuckling and my teacher said to me "You can't be a tiger. You are a human.' I looked her straight in the eye and said 'My dad said I can be anything I want to be, and people who say I can't, grew up to be nobodies!'

I never understood why my classmates kept laughing at me after that.

When my sister was little, whenever someone asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she'd tell them, very seriously, a bird.
