Mom, When I Grow Up, I Want to Be…

My four-year-old is so fascinated with cars and trains. Even if he has lots of toy cars and toy trains already, those are still what he would often ask his Dad to buy him when they would pass by toy stores inside the mall. His fondness for these toys is so great that he even wants to become a car driver or a train driver when he grows up.

Whenever he would bring up this point, I would always respond with this question: “Don’t you want to drive your own car, instead of just being a car driver?” And he would always say: “No, I want to drive a car.” It doesn’t really matter to him if he’s driving his own car or not for as long as he gets to drive a car. Okay, son, point taken!

Before, he also said he wanted to become a fireman, but he changed his mind about becoming one because I told him it’s a dangerous job. Good thing he doesn’t want to become a pilot or a ship captain because I’m assured he won’t suffer from in-flight injury or maritime injury in the future.

What do your kids want to be when they grow up?

    kids now are very intelligent. I remember my friend’s 8 year old son told her mom “I invoked my self from self incrimination” 🙂

    I’m pretty sure kid’s ambitions change as they grow because all of us did. When I was younger, I wanted to be a doctor, then a nun, then a fashion designer….but guess, what did I end up being?
    My 4 year old niece wants to be a fashion model —not just a fashion model , but a Victoria Secret model and we all know that is going to change.
    My brother said when he was in Kindergarten, he wanted to become a pilot, then he said he wanted to become an engineer, and then a computer programmer, and now he’s a businessman.
    As kids grow older, their knowledge and experience expands, so don’t worry about their ambitions that it’s going to be harmful or not or profitable or not, I’m sure they are going to change.
