Do you remember what you wanted to be when you were a kid?

Are you doing whatever it was now?

If you did not become say a firefighter or doctor or teacher, are you happy with what you do now?

sahm's who left their careers to focus on the family, would you return to said career or do something different if you returned to work.

I wanted to be a teacher.. and thankfully I am NOT lol I wouldn't make a very good teacher.. but I did find a passion for travel/hospitality and worked for a fancy hotel chain all over the country. I'm now a sahm to two wild and crazy kids.. I LOVE IT I would like to get back into the tourism industry one day! 

 

Wow, TOP CONVERSATION!!

I am seriously loving the posts!! Im happy to hear those who are SAHM are happy.. Some of your career choices as a child were pretty funny!! I truelly hope my kids find what they love to do and just go for it!! they can be/do whatever they want!!!

I am only slightly tempted to check the websites of the work from home posts!!

I wanted to be a nicu doctor.

I'm now a sahm but do have education in the finance field. I love numbers so it's the job for me. I plan on furthering my education and becoming an accountant.

I wanted to become a teacher and just read to kids all day.

I cannot imagine being in a room full of children daily for hours now. I'd lose my shit.

I wanted to be a meteorologist. I'm a SAHM who worked for a mortgage company previously, so I was nowhere even near what I wanted to be as a little girl.

and are you one now? I often think how nice it would be to just stay home and do nothing, but then I get bored!!!

Quoting tardistraveller:

I wanted to be a hermit.

I always wanted to be a mom and home with my kids.  I have been a SAHM since before our first child was born.
