At the start of the year, I always ask my kids, “What do you wanna be when you grow up?”
Each year, the list has new additions, and sometimes, old dreams as tossed aside. This is the first start of the year this blog is going through, so here’s 2013’s WHAT I WANNA BE WHEN I GROW UP (with reasons stated in italics)
Nicole, 8 year old
Nurse – To help others and I want to take temperature for the patients
Teacher – I can teach, use the markers, and choose what books to read
Hip-hop Dancer – Not ballet, so boring
Scientist – I want to do experiments
Nathan, 6 year old
Magician – I get to do magic tricks, and people have to pay me to do, and I get to travel and perform
Policeman – I want to catch all the bad guys
Nadine, 5 year old
Ballerina – I want to wear pink and purple
So in 2013, we are getting friends with occupations to speak to them so they can find out more. And in cases like magician, scientist and hip hop dancer, perhaps we will get the introduction kit/class for them.
What do your school going kids wanna be when they grow up?
