Aloha Friday #80

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday.

In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too. Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

My question is:

When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?

    What didn’t I want to be? It changed so frequently, there was rarely one consistent thing, although I think if I could be paid to read books, that would have always sounded good to me.

    I always wanted to be a teacher. I worked in daycare for 6 years, so I got a little “teaching” in. And now, even though I’m not in an “real” school, I am homeschooling my girls, so I guess you could say I grew up to be what I dreamed of? ;)

    I didn’t want to be a mom. When I was in college I didn’t want to be a teacher.

    and look at me now…Mother & Teacher! Funny thing was all the folks along the way telling me that I would be great at both.

    Easy! I wanted to be a Lawyer. I am furious when it comes to something I believe in. Or when I have been wrongly accused of doing or saying something or lied to or lied about. Just a couple of my pet peeves.

    Valerie says:

    Okay I meant ferocious not furious. lol

    Jen says:

    One night my mom, brother and I were talking about what I wanted to be when I grew up and at the point I was as undecided as I am now. I apparently said I wanted to be a Dallas Cowboy cheerleader and a police woman so my brother said that I wanted to be a “pistol packing pom pom policewoman.” I will never forget that. I wanted to be a school teacher, too.

    MommyAmy says:

    I wanted to be a mammologist (someone who studies mammals). A close second was a zoologist. I did volunteer at a local zoo for 4 years while I was in high school. I quickly realized that I pretty much suck at math and science and although I LOVE animals such a career would require a lot more study of things I didn’t like.
