When I grow up I want to be...

My daughter and I were watching a preview of Sisterhood of Hip Hop and she starts talking about how she wants to be a singer. She has a beautiful voice but I don't want her caught up in that industry. I'm a little disappointed that she doesn't wanna do something else when she grows up. I think too many kids are intrigued by the glitz and glamour of that world and I just don't want that for either one of my kids. What happened to children wanting to be doctors, lawyers, etc.? She expressed before that she wanted to be a hairstylist and own a shop. I'd much rather she do that but once she's old enough to decide which career path she wants to take, what can I really do about which way she chooses to go? Anyway, what do your kids want to be when they grow up?

I want ds to be a doctor, teacher, some profession where he can help people. He is smart and kind (when he wants to be) and likes helping others. He is 5 and wants to be Flash! Flash does help people so I suppose I am getting my wish.

I love singing and have the knowledge of music but because my mom said make it a hobby and not a goal that dream is still that at twenty eight and I know what it takes to get there.

Dd one is so practical. She wants to be a fire person. She likes helping people and when we took her to my step dads job she was so amazed
