What did you want to be when you "grew up"?

What did you want to do with your life before you became a young mom?  Are you doing it now?  If not, are you happy with the way your life is turning out?

I always wanted to be an archeologist, but when I got pregnant young (17) I decided that being a mom was more important to me.  

I'd still love to go on a dig some day, but I really like the way my life has turned out.  :)

I wanted to be a mom so my dream has come true. Sadly career wise I still don't know what I want to do, but I don't get to stay home forever.

I've wanted to be a labor and delivery nurse since I was 13, when I had my son and the nurses made such a huge impact on my life. I'm 25 now, raising 4 kids, and working full time as a L&D nurse and I love it. I graduated at 19 with my associates, 20 with my BSN.

Well really my whole life I went back and forth. Teacher or lawyer. Then I realized mom is kinda the same thing just not the same pay. LOL I married a lawyer though, does that count? haha

I always wanted to be a SAHM

I have things I really like doing, but I don't know that I could make a career out of it.

I've always wanted to be an interior designer, I still do actually. Right now I'm an admin assistant.

I've always thought that would be a fun job.  I wouldn't mind being a house stager either for houses that are for sale.

I wanted to be a mom and veterinarian. Unfortunately the veterinarian thing never happened because I am awful at math, no matter how hard I tried and how many different tutors I had,I just couldn't get it. So half of my dream came true.
