  • My ds is almost seven and wants to be a marine biologist or a vet who works with reptiles. He loves animals, especially things with scales! My dd is four and wants to be a teacher.

    When my ds was about three, someone asked him what he wanted to be when he grew up and he said "Bigger!" LOL!

  • My son wants to be a Geologist or a horticulturist. He said to me that a geologist studies the earth and space. And that a horticulturist studies and cultivates plants. He is 7 almost 8. Keep in mind that at the age of 1 1/2 he was evaluated to have the mental capacity of a 4 year old.
