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?
