I used to think that when I grew up, I was going to be Batman. I sincerly beleived that at some point in my life I would don a costume and go and fight crime from a cave.
I used to believe that I could be anything I wanted when I grew up. That's why I wanted to be an airport. My best friend wanted to be a firetruck.
When my parents told me that I could be whatever I wanted when I grew up, I took that to mean that I really COULD be anything I wanted. My life's ambition was to be Darth Vader. I didn't know how I was going to be Darth Vader, as I didn't have a cape, and I also happened to be a girl, but I believed that I could be Darth Vader because my mommy said so.
When I was very young, probably 3 or 4, somebody asked me for the first time what I wanted to be when I grew up. I remember the glorious feeling of my sudden realization that life was not as limiting as I'd already begun to believe, and with a big smile, I answered "a lion!"
For some unknown reason when my little sister was about three she wanted to be a fish finger when she grew up (dont ask).
When I was about 3 or 4, my destiny was to become a cash register. Then my mom told me I couldn't be a cash register, and I got very, very mad. So I sat down, thought a bit, and decided I wanted to be a fire hydrent instead. Yes, a fire hydrent, and not a fireman.
When she went to explain that one to me, I plugged my ears, and ran around in circles humming.
When I was about five I believed that if I wished hard enough I could grow up to be an Oompa-Loompa (the little orange guys from Willy Wonka) My little brother believed he could be a rainbow.

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".
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 friend desided in kindergarden that she would be a door when she grew up.
When I was younger, I wanted to be a kangaroo SO BADLY when I grew up. My dad spent hours trying to tell me that I couldn't be, and I threw horrible temper tantrums EVERY TIME.
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 my parents told me I could be anything I wanted to be when I grew up, I decided I wanted to be a horse. I thought they meant I had to change into an animal, I didn't know they meant career. I was sad. I really didn't want to be an animal, but I decided being a horse was the best option.
When I was little, I wanted to grow up to be a firetruck. Not a fireman, a firetruck.
When I was around 2-3 I was had the belief that as humans we not only turned into adult humans but everything around us, so you would choose what you wanted to be I was asked the question all adults seem to ask "what do you want to be when you grow up?" and ny obvious answer (well to me anyway) was "an apple", what do you think you would have chosen to be, it could be anything?
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.

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.
