Ballerina, no. I was in dance recitals and performed ballet but not at the level of my dreams.

Nun-umm, no. I discovered boys and that put an end to that.

All I ever wanted to be was a mother. I went to nursing school so I would have a skill that would pay me well enough to support a family. I got a degree in elementary ed because I like teaching. When my kids came along I was well equipped.
Never underestimate the determination of the mother with a handicapped child

I always checked off Nurse or Teacher, but I really just wanted to be a Mommy.

I always wanted to go on a game show and watched as many as I could. Maybe some day I'll get on one.
Yes, your kids will have fun at Uni and Epcot!

Mom was always first.

When I was really young (elem), I wanted to be a vet or pediatrician. Later in HS, I wanted to be a teacher. I ended up being working in insurance for several years and finally became a teacher.

One day, when I grow up some more, I want to be a counselor or school psychologist.

I'm pretty sure unless you are a child of an insurance owner, most people do not dream of working in insurance when they are young. Definitely not my dream and it pushed me to do what I really wanted to do.

I wanted to be a whale trainer at Sea World when I was three, that turned into wanting to be a marine biologist in middle school but since I hate deep water that was out.

I wanted to be a few things:

A veterinarian - too sensitive to putting animals to sleep
A teacher - too shy to stand up in front of a classroom
A flight attendant - afraid of flying
A model - too ugly, lol

Oh well my other dream was being a writer. I am not published but at least that one is within the realm of possible for me. I think. But I won't quit my day job.
There is no charge for awesomeness.

When I was really little, I wanted to be a cashier at the grocery store.

On a side note, when I was little I always loved the smell of the bank. Something about the old building smell mixed with the smell of money. To this day I love when I walk into an older bank, they all have the same glorious smell. Newer banks however do nothing for me.

FBI Agent. Most likely inspired by the FBI TV show starring Efrem Zimbalist, Jr.

Funny, I grew up with Kennedy in the White House, and Kennedy was a bad word in my neighborhood. Can't tell you how many times I heard "how the son of a bootlegger ever got elected President..."
Throw in that my dad was in the Army and on a trooper carrier that sunk...with fatalities...there were some heros on the troop carrier, and he was bitter because he and his buddies had to fight to get their VA benefits, yet, everyone involved with PT 109 was a national hero.

So President was never on my list.

I wanted to be a kindergarten teacher while I was in elementary school. I stopped in Junior High because I started to realize it was not an easy job.

I dreamed being a jouranlist or a lawyer throughout junior and senior high school. I also wanted to be a translator in senior year.

I ended up being a financial analyst.

Early childhood, I just wanted to be a mom.

In Jr. High I decided I wanted to be an attorney. Halfway through my first semester in college, I decided that wasn't going to happen. I then decided that I would be an accountant instead. I am now a CPA.

When in Kindergarten, I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up. I answered with "cash register"

When I was little, I wanted to be President, a hair dresser, or a mom.

My first job out of college was in marketing. Then I stayed home with my kids for 13 years. Now I teach preschool.
