I LOVE discussing this with my kids, on two different levels. I love talking to the older ones about it because I love seeing how happy it makes them to think of their future and what they want to be, and I love talking to little ones (or little one, and the others when they were younger) because the things they come/came up with are just adorable.

At the moment, with my kids its,

Dita wants to be a chocolatier. She will be going to university next year and her high school makes them apply to a minimum of 5 places, she is applying to 6 but the one she wants more than anything is a culinary institute that offers a 3 year culinary management course and throughout the 3 years you do 3 one year cooking modules, she wants to do confectionery manufacturing, patisserie and retail baking (cake and pastry) at the moment her "career goal" is to open a store that does handmade chocolates, cakes to order and a cafe section.

Azriel wants to join the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, but career and study wise he wants to be a music teacher.

Sunny currently want to join the circus. Its a real obsession of hers, she does gymnastics and were currently talking about a circus club where she will learn acrobatics, but its the cost thats holding that back at the moment. So we'll see.

Lux switches between wanting to be a vet and a zoologist, recently she discovered that she could be a vet at the zoo, so thats her current thing that she wants to be.

Sasha wants to be a train. Not a train driver, a train. He wants to be a red train and live with Thomas the Tank Engine.

Those aren't your ordinary "teacher, doctor" goals! I love that the little one want to be a train LOL!

I read on Nathan's "About me" poster at school that he wants to be a grown up when he grows up and that he will be 50 yrs old when that happens.

Reagan's said she wanted to be a teacher and she will be 21. She also has said an animal expert and a dancer.

This is a question that comes up periodically at our house. I also love hearing their answers.

I haven't asked recently but I have heard them talking about a family restuarant they are going to have. My oldest has always wanted to go to culinary school. Since she was in the 2nd grade to be exact. Now she has #3 talking about it as well. They are always talking about their menus and making big plans. I think it's so sweet.

I'll have to ask again to get current answers on 2, 4, 5 (doubt 6 will have an answer, lol). I'm sure they've changed by now.

Nolan is 5 and yesterday he wanted to be a pilot-either helicopter or space ship-I told him as long as he works for a major airline so I can fly for free he may proceed

E is nearly 4 and wants to teach or do ballet

The twins are working on PTing, they're not very career focused right now

I want them to be: pilot, teacher, nurse, paramedic and lawyer

Lucky mother to five!
