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.
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.
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 wanted to be an elephant when I grew up.
When I was younger I thought humans could turn into anything, so when I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up I said a gold fish.
When I was rather young, adults would occasionally ask me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I'd hear kids say something rather boring. I wanted to be a male African Lion. I'd say lion and they'd smile like I'd never learn how.
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.
Sad enough, i used to believe i could be a dinosaur when i grew up for a job.
when asked what i would like to be when i grew up, as a girl of about 5, i answered "a horsey".
When I was younger I always believed that I was going to grow up to be a princess. I believed that I was going to be a princess when I got older until i was like 8. My parents ruined the whole belief when they told me that I had to marry a prince and that was the ONLY way i could become a princess.
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:
When my sister was younger, she used to tell us she wanted to be a lightbulb when she grew up. A few years later, we told our youngest sister this and she said she wanted to be the refridgerator and my sister could be the light bulb in her.
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.
This is not my belief, but when my sister was little, she used to believe that she could be anything she wanted to be. It frustrated her teachers to no end when it changed everyday.
"Grace, what do you want to be when you grow up?"
Next day,"A kitten"
After that, "A goat"
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 sister was little, whenever someone asked her what she wanted to be when she grew up, she'd tell them, very seriously, a bird.
once when i was a kid someone asked me what i wanted to be when i grew up. i thought about it and decided i wanted to be a horse and believed for years that i would... right.
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 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.
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.
