What do you think your child will be when they grow up ..

Just for fun ... what do you think you child will be, based on whatever information you have right now, when they grow up?

I never ventured to think what my children would be when they were adults, apart from being older! My eldest daughter has changed her jobs several times, beginning as a nanny and then working for the postal department, now she's in training to be a masseur. My second daughter started training as a horticulturist, then turned to office work and is now a mother of two, and my son has always been a baker but is now studying for his Business Degree and is wanting to get into IT. I always told them that anything that made them happy was what I wanted them to be, and that is what they are. The only sure thing in life is that your children will be older (not necessarily mature).

My only hope is that they do not follow in their father's footsteps, that they branch out and do things that match up with their talents and abilities. My husband provides a good living as a fast food restaurant manager, but the hours suck and the job sucks. He likes it, but he would make such a great high school teacher/coach that it's a shame he's wasting that talent on something that doesn't really matter rather than something that does. I hope that my kids will find something to do that suits their talents and where they can contribute something good to the world.

Brooke, it sounds like she has all the makings of a great teacher. I love the "It's ok and to try again". We need more teachers like that ... She's probably emulating mom's geat example.

My daughter always wants to play school. She always wants to be the teacher too. Tonight my husband came home and she's like, "Sit down, it's time to practice your letters." Later I heard, "That's not how you make a K... MOM!!" Apparently Joe doesn't curl the K like I do so he did it wrong. She told him it was okay and he could try and try again until he got it right because practice makes perfect! Maybe she'll take after me and be a teacher.

My sweet little girl will either be a lawyer due to her public speaking habit and sweet gentle voice. Or a hairdressor since, I remain to be one of her favorite clients. Perhaps even a singing artist or painter, since she's diverse in both fields.

So defanitly something in law enforcment. Winter either a vet, cryptozooaligest, or a palinotaligist. She loves animals, mythical things and dinos.

My son 4 goes all over the map, but I really see him singing in a band, he already makes up songs and remembers them. His dad and him are going to write their song together. He also loves to cook with his dad and sometimes he loves to play daddy and feed his babies the food he cooked. He always reminds them to eat the good food before you get any bad food.
My baby is 17m and I think he is destined to be a vampire :P

Based on this moment: a gymnast or an actor. He loves this gymnastics gym we go to sometimes and he is up for a role in a local TV commercial :-)

Right now (at 2) her interests are drawing, books and hanging out at the hospital (weirdo). She is insanely good at the drawing so some sort of artsy thing is possible. We have a lot of that in our family. Maybe something with language. Maybe something medical.

Lucy, that's funny about the mermaid. My one daughter, the one I think could be anything she sets her mind to, always says, I just want to have babies and be a mom when I grow up. I am hoping that is part of what she does but I am hoping she might use her amazing musical talents and write some great stories with her vivid imagination.

Emily, I am sorry to hear that your child got bitten by a dog.How scary. I was bitten by one around the same age but have been around so many dogs that I have had to let it go. I love rugby. If it wasn't for the fact that I am a die hard Springbok fan then the All Blacks would be the way to go!

he will be a motorcycle riding zombie slayer/monster hunter. and a drummer in his spare time :)

my 2year old son, a mechanic. He's obsessed with anything with wheels and likes to play around with his daddy under the hood yelling "mowma" (motor) and trying to fix it

First: Fezeika, watch that dog fixation. My 12-year-old just got bitten by a dog on her way home from school!

She will probably be an actress/sing/model, as she is such a drama queen/diva! My 2-year old son will probably be a professional rugby player. He loves tackling our legs and weighs over 16kg already (I think that's about 40 pounds, and is built like an All-Black!

When I asked my 5 year old daughter what she wanted to be when she grows up she said "well, really a mermaid but I can't swim so I think that's out. Maybe a vet, or an astronaut... ooh, no, Tori Amos!"

my son wants to go to work with his aunt (who is a bartender!). but i think he will do something that is caring for people. he's such a little daddy with his sister, and other kids esp if they are hurt or upset.

Amy - posted on 11/13/2011




My daughter would be a lawyer. She loves to talk and insist and the finest of things. She refuses to be dependant on anyone else for her money! LOL

Corinne - posted on 11/11/2011




My little girl is 5 and she's already told me that she wants to be a lollipop lady, a vet and a ballet dancer all at the same time. My son is going to 'get big, turn yellow and use uncle Ryan's sword to kill baddies' he's all about Bubmlebee from Transformers atm.

I think my oldest child, she's 11, will probably be a vet and an animal activist. she cares so much for animals and has so much empathy.

now my middle son, he's 7, I think he'll grow up be the paleontologist that he's always wanted to be. Come home open up a garage where people wont get ripped off. Either that or he'll be a lawyer. The kid can negotiate with the best of them.

The littlest well he's only four but he has evil genius written all over we call him stewie from family guy lol. the big joke is he'll be right beside his brother trying to talk him into doing all sorts of things.

My parents gave me very little beyond "you can be whatever you want to be", which was unfortunately not very helpful as far as direction goes!

I always thought my son would be an engineer. He just turned 15 and wants to be an actuary, which is a heavily math-intensive profession, so close, and he may yet change his mind!

My 12-year-old has been dancing since she started walking, and she's also been arguing with me since the day she was born, long before she could talk. I'm predicting she'll make money dancing to put herself through law school, and then practice law in performing arts.

My 6-year-old is a singer and dancer, and quite the drama queen. I think she'll be on stage somewhere, if nothing else as a hobby. Beyond that, she's very good at math (all three are) and loves animals, so maybe a vet?

That is funny Lacye. Isn't it wonderful when they have no inhibitions and can just belt it out .. it must feel so good!

My 2 and a half year old will be a singer. She walks around all day singing at the top of her lungs! LOL Let's just hope her vocal abilities get better between now and then. I'd have a great nursing home to go to when I get old. :D

Chantelle, I have an animal lover too. When we get to the bus stop she goes straight for the dogs, I have to remind her to say hi to the people too. We are banned from killing any bugs and pests in the house (at least while she is around).

Emma, you joke about being a paramedic, I think my girls might be ambulance chasers. Their main concern when arriving on the scene is not how the hurt person is doing but rather: what happened, how did it happen, who hit who, then what, is that a cut, how bad, can we see the blood? I get mortified!

J has wanted to be an architect since he was 3 years old and learned the word. He's 7 now and never wavered. My husband tries to introduce him to different fields of engineering so he can follow in his footsteps, and while J will listen and look, he still picks architect at the end of the day.

My son, a stunt man, he's always jumping off of things, maybe a mechanical engineer because he loves taking things apart and seeing how they work or a javelin thrower going off of the way he throws things around.
My daughter, something artistic or creative, she loves drawing an telling stories, but definatley something that she has to stamp her authority in, she's very bossy and isn't afraid to tell you waht she thinks

Sal - posted on 11/07/2011




I am terrified to think, my number 3 loves being dizzy, would drink all her calories and spends a fair portion of each day naked and can undress her self in the most creative fashion so I can only imagine her career path might be when she works out she can get dizzy from drinking and taking your clothes for money.....

My 21 month old girl....a screaming banshee and she will be AMAZING at it.....My 5 year old boy....who knows he is interested in everything.

No question about my 4 yr old son...a truck driver like Daddy. He is obsessed with the things!!! He would do anything to be in one of those trucks and begs Daddy to take him any time he goes to work in around his. He has quite a few toy trucks and plays with them constantly.
As for my girls 12 and 4....who knows. They aren't set on anything yet.

Stifler's - posted on 11/06/2011




Maybe a paramedic just for funnies because he goes up to kids throwing tantrums and kneels down and tries to hug them at the park

Lisa - posted on 11/06/2011




My son will do somesort of public speaking. He talks all the time, if I let him he'll stand on the couch/table/any thing he can where he is elevated and just starts talking telling stories etc... definatly public speaker
My daughter... maybe a social worker... she is a gentle soul who gushes love on every one

[deleted account]

My daughter will definitely a gymnast-artist math teacher who climbs trees and makes mud pies in her spare time.

My toddler boy will be a screaming banshee and he'll be #1 in his field.
