I'm curious...what did you want to be when you grew up?

Did you know from a young age what you wanted to do? Did it take you awhile to figure it out? Is what you're doing now remotely related to your childhood ideas?
My husband and I were talking about this recently. When he was a kid, he wanted to be a paleontologist or a dentist, and when he got older, he wanted to be a teacher. Then he wanted to work in radio, which he did for awhile.
What he didn't want to do is work for/with his dad in the family business.
So guess what he does now? Yup, you guessed it. He is now an owner in the family business, and he loves what he does.
When I was a kid, I dreamed of being a veterinarian, a nurse, a medical missionary, a teacher, or a writer. (I also wanted to train horses for the circus, own my own zoo, and breed racehorses.)
I did grow up to be a teacher, and I'm now a writer...still waiting for the circus gig, though.)
Our daughter came out of the school after her first day of kindergarten and informed me that she was going to be a teacher. She never wavered from that goal, though she refined it as she got older to Early Childhood Educator. Now she's a pre-school teacher with Head Start, and that fills her teacherly happy cup up every day.

She teaches pre-school Sunday School, too!
Our son rarely mentioned what he wanted to be beyond perhaps a video game beta-tester. :) Now he works for a courier service based in the upper midwest, and he drives lots of miles all by himself, which he seems to like immensely, since he doesn't have to talk to anyone and can listen to his music while he drives.
