I misread jturr's thread at first (What do you want your kids to be ... ) and thought I'd start this one. How old are your kids and what do they want to be when they grow up?

13-year-old girl: an actress or famous on YouTube for her animated cartoons

11-year-old girl: a teacher

5-year-old boy: a ninja or "a good guy Storm Trooper"

Well lets see: My oldest 21yo girl is a massage therapist, but she wanted to be an olympic pole vaulter before she started having leg problems.

18 yo old son: wants to be a Marine (he goes off to boot camp in a week) He was wanting to also be some type of ologist like a marine biologist, or an entomologist or an orinthologist. He also loves horticulteral stuff so he thought about being some type of farmer or person who experiments with plants. He's a really great artist and writer and thought about combining the two there for a while.

12 yo. daughter: wants to be an artist or web site designer and also a mom.

10 yo. daughter: wants to be either a vet, a clothers designer, or maybe a teacher, but she really wants to also be a mom.

8 yo. daughter: wants to be a writer, a princess, an artist and also a mom.

My son wanted to be a paleontologist from the time he was 3 or 4.
We spent practically every saturday at the natural science museum.

Now he wants to be a tattoo artist.
I am trying to work with him on figuring out realistic steps he needs to take to attain that goal.

Right now only my oldest is old enough to say what he wants to be, and he's trying to decide over being a chemist (he wants to walk around mixing potions all day) or a Monster Truck Driver. He's 7
