when they grow up?

Have you had that conversation with them yet? It's one of my favorites.

I love to listen to little kids dream about what they want to be when they grow up. Cole really surprised me last night with his answer.
He was telling me his plans to move into his own house and how he was going to get paid "like a hundred dollars a day!". When I asked him what he was going to do that would pay so well , he said "plastic surgery"!
I have NO idea where he picked that up from but, hey, I'm all for it.

Alyssa still wants to be a Chef.
Emma wants to get married.
Lucas is going to drive monster trucks.
Cortney...mom to A, C, E, L, I, and R

When I'm Due...

When I think this baby will actually come out

My kiddos are a little older.

Liv (14) Jr high or HS science teacher
Kayla (10) Architect or electrical engineer
Cari (8) Veterinarian and/or actress
Maddy (6) doesnt want to grow up. She wants to stay with Mommy and Daddy forever.

When Kayla was almost 3, we went to the zoo. After a show, she looked up at me and said "I want to be a seal when I grow up!". That is a favorite family story now. She claims it was Navy SEAL, but we all know better.

Beth (6) wants to be a veterinarian. Matt (5) wants to be a missionary.

When they were a little younger (like 3 and 4) Beth told me she wanted to be a firefighter, and Matt told me he wanted to be the hose.

I love this thread! Cute kids!

Nolan has wanted to be: garbage man, paramedic, policeman, firefighter, dinosaur and his current career goal is to be a farmer like grampa and work at a hardware store Guess I'll be using that education savings account for myself

Lucky mother to five!

Funny, this is what my fb status is that I just put up a few minutes ago:

Julia wants to be a veterinadian, mermaid, the queen, princess, ballerina and horserider when she grows up. Too bad that we can't hang on to a bit more of all the possibility a 5 year old sees for themselves.

I am really not sure about the other ones, my oldest will do something horse related, I can totally see my next girl being a teacher or a nurse, she is a very nurturing kind. My 3rd, I don't know, my 4th will want to do something that keeps her surrounded by a lot of people.
