When I grow up I want to be.................

The other day Tom asked me what I want to be when I "growed up".
I love the way kids think.  I said I would like to be a Super Hero and we both laughed.  "You can't be a Super Hero.....your muscles are not big enough!'.
When I ask the same question he always comes back with the same answer........ a Fireman.  Never a Super Hero, train driver or racing car driver.  Things that he loves to play with and talk about on a daily basis.
Bell and I talk about the same subject.  For her it is either a teacher or dancer.  I tell her she will most likely change her mind a million times but to strive for what she wants and that it is ok to change your mind or take a different direction and most of all do what you want.
When I was growing up and obsessed with "The Sound of Music" I wanted to be a.........ahem......... a nun.  Then a teacher, super model, flight attendant, librarian and the list goes on.
My first job on leaving school was a dental assistant.  Not quite what I had in mind.  A series of other jobs followed well into my twenties.
I never had a set plan.  Did you?
What did you want to be when you grew up?
Have you taken a different direction or are you doing what you ALWAYS wanted to do?
Future All Black?
This photo was taken over the summer.  Batman top and cape over Pj's.....as you do.


  1. hehe! That sounds exactly like my tow kids, my daughter wants to be a teacher/mum and my son wants to be a fireman and policeman! I never really had an idea of what I wanted to be..I feel more like a kid now with my dreams of being an artist...when I grow up thats what I want to be! :)

  2. Adorable! Adorable! It is so good to have these talks with your kiddos!!! Makes them dream and that is so important in life! I laughed when you said nun!!!! Have a great week Elaina!

    So cute - I can't wait until my boys start running around on a field xx

  4. Super cute :) I wanted to be a mum and a teacher... I can tick the mum box and hope to one day tick the teacher box x

  5. Very cute. I obviously haven't grown up yet - I still don't know what I want to be. At this point in time, I am loving being a stay at home mum who crafts, gardens and cooks.

  6. Awww <3 I always wanted to be a primary school teacher - then once I was one, I realised I hated it with a violent passion! That was a little problematic. Fortunately I used my lateral thinking & realised I do love teaching music, so started my wee business & you know how that turned out :D (my class here is FULL as of today! Full! I can't take any more kids!!) xx

  7. Air hostess for me.....loved the uniform and so wanted to travel! :) x
