I used to believe if you didn't want to have a job, you could be an animal because my dad told me he wanted to be a zebra(he's a geoligist). So I wanted to be a cat and I would walk around like one and wear cat ears all the time. I even had a name-Princess Kitty Cat. Its the name in all my picture books.

Like lots of other people, when I was little, I was told I could be whatever I wanted. At six years old, I was asked what I wanted to be. I said Wednesday Addams.
At least it was an improvement, at four, I wanted to be a pickle when I grew up.

My brother, about age 3, insisted that when he grew up, he would become a fish. Me and my sister would say "No, you cant be a fish. You can be a Cop or Fireman, but you can't be a fish." and he said "Yes I can. I can be anything I want, so I'll be a fish, a blue fish and swim and blow bubbles all day." It took him about 3-4 years to realize he couldn't be a fish.

After living in Southern California, then moving up to Oregon, I was amazed with Snow. My teacher at my Preschool what I wanted to be when I was older, I told her I wanted to be a Snowman.

When I was younger, my babysitter told me that I could me anything I wanted to be when I grew up. I was rather attached to anything Disney at the time and desperately wanted to be Snow White or Sleeping Beauty, but definitly Jasmine. My babysitter couldn't convince me otherwise.

When I was very little (about 5) I believed with every fibre of my being that at the age ten you could turn into any animal of your choosing. I guess by ten I knew it wasn't really true but the let down was incredible.

When I was in first grade the teacher was going around the room asking everyone what they wanted to be when they grew up. The kid next to me said when he grew up he wanted to be a robot.

"You can be anything you want to be" Well, when I was about 2 or 3 I literally wanted to be a trashtruck. Not the trashperson, the truck. Every Thursday I would run to the window just to watch the trashtruck do its thing. heh

As a small kid, I was told the usual thing of "when you grow up, you can be anything you want to be", so i decided that I was going to grow up to be a bird. I was quite disappointed when I found out this was pretty unlikely to happen...

When I was about 4, I thought everyone got pocket money (sorry if that's just a British term - it means 'allowance') from their parents all their lives. My teacher asked the class what we wanted to be when we grew up, and I said "The queen, because she gets a lot of pocket money".

When people asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up I would alway say "rabbit" or some type of animal. I used to think if you acted like an animal you could turn into one!

When I was young, I began pondering what I wanted to be when I grew up. I decided that I did not want to be a doctor, lawyer, or even The President. I wanted to be a toaster oven! For many years when adults would ask, "What to you want to be when you grow up?" I'd inform them that I wanted to pursue a career as a toaster oven. My mother, who no doubt dreaded that question, would cringe, turn bright red, and often times hurry me away from the stunned people. Sadly, I never became a toaster oven, but here's hoping for the future!

When I was little I was always told that I could be whatever I wanted to be when I grew up. I took this very literally and told my Mother and sister that when I grew up I wanted to be a horse. I still hear about this story whenever family comes over. It haunts me to this day.

My friend (whose name shall from here on be "Janet") at the age of 5 was convinced that she was going to grow up and become a bumblebee. She believed this all the way into second grade, when she asked her teacher when they were going to start flying lessons.
I still tease her about that sometimes...

When I was 6 I wanted to be a Barbie Doll when I grew up. I practiced the words my "talking Barbie" would say until I had them memorised, and I wore my moms pointy toed shoes everywhere (I even painted them hot pink once-washable, thankfully). I was in third grade before I realised Barbies were NOT people too.
