I used to believe that when we grow up, for jobs, we'd turn into animals. I never wanted to be a balet dancer or a doctor...I wanted to be a kitten or a polar bear!!

When I was younger, whenever someone asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up, I said that I was going to be the Little Mermaid. And yet while I still thought that, I nearly drowned in my friend's pool one day and still expected to be the Little Mermaid.

When I first started school we played a game where we had to pretend to be anything we wanted. The other kids in the class understood that this meant what job they would like to do when they were older. I simply took 'anything' literally and proudly told my teacher that I wanted to be a unicorn when I grew up O_o; This led to teasing all through primary school about me wanting to be different animals when I was older.

When I was in preschool, in England (at the tender age of four), the teacher was talking to us about what we wanted to be when we grew up. There was the usual- fireman, policeman, etc etc. When it came to my turn, i said "I want to be a pony!" Haha! (As in those ponies from My Little Pony)

When my parents told me that I could be anything I wanted when I grew older, I took it non-job wise. I really thought that I would turn into a dog later on, because thats what I wanted to be! I even peed behind the couch, practicing...

When my best friend's younger sister was around three years old, her family was having dinner with the preacher. Trying to make conversation with the kids, the preacher asked them both what they wanted to be when they grew up. The younger sister proudly replied, "A toothbrush!". She thought that would be the perfect occupation, because you got to be very useful to people but you only had to work three times a day. My friend swears that's the only time she ever heard her preacher laugh.

when I was 4 I thought you could be ANYTHING when you grew up. One day my mom asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up and I said I wanted to be a toad. After a while I got tired of that idea and decided to be a rock.

I used to believe you could literally be "anything" when you grew up. So when people asked, "What do you want to be when you grow up?" I told them what, after long deliberation, I had decided to be:
"A horse."
