When i was a little girl only like 3 or 4 and people would ask me what i wanted to be when i grew up i would say a panda bear. Its funny. My brother wanted to be a butterfly. He had the wings and everything. He was gonna be David the Butterfly even though his name was Elijah. Then when i grew up a little more i understood you couldn't be an animal. So i wanted to be a nurse who worked with little babies since i had siblings. What did you want to be when you grew up?

When i was a little boy, i wanted to be a scientist.Because scientists can invent useful things. But now, i just want to be rich. Because money cann't do everything, but you cann't have no money.

Good post! I wanted to be a superhero like Superman (Green Lantern, Flash, the Martian Manhunter) and save the world and end suffering. Now I do what I can and leave the rest to God.

What I wanted to be as a child (if it were an animal) would be a lion. Just the idea of being the kind of the jungle sounded really cool. And all that hair, woah, fun stuff. XD

Hahahaha! Very funny. What a team you and your brother make! When I was a kid I wanted to be an angel when I grew up. Then when I grew up I decided I would rather be a faerie. A wood nymph I think! Or a water sprite.

I did not really have anything in mind when I was little of what I wanted to be when I grew up, not that I can remember anyway. But this discussion just puts me in mind of my little boy, he is 6, and when he grows up he wants to be a gingerbread man! He is very funny and has wanted to be a gingerbread man now since he was about 4!

Oh wow - that's adorable ! A panda and a butterfly - I positively LOVE it ! So much so, that I'm giving up my current desire to be a disgustingly rich recluse when I grow up to be a panda myself...I'm thinking it's a far better option and they are now an endangered species. Honestly I don't recall wanting to be anything aside from out of my mothers house - my sister however, decided at age 7 that she wanted her name to be Kevin - and for nearly a year would not respond to any other calling - looking back on that event usually has me rolling with giggles -.

I wanted to be a rockstar and then a lawyer. Then I thought about becoming an architect. I changed my mind often as a child.

OK you have raised the subject in your childhoold what was your desire to be a. In the child the brain is a plain paper what we write on it he follows. If any body ask the child what you wanted to be when you grow what ever is \in his mind he will speak or what ever he has seen or see he will speak. Well I was just start schooling, my father always says my son will become engineer. But I use to argue with other and I wanted to be an advocate. I could neither become an engineer nor an advocate. The desire in me of being advocate continued and being in an corporate office I use work and act as Defence Council in the departmental courts.

I've heard of people who surgically modify their bodies so that they can resemble more like animals. One guy actually turned his nails into claws, put striped tattoos all over his body, implanted whiskers around his lips and switched his teeth for fangs.

Haha cute, I wanted to be a fireman, typical boy idea, but then when I was like 7 I wanted to be a financialanalyist, now how the heck did I know that job at age 7. I worry myself sometimes. Those occupations are a bit different then my intended major in music

My daughter wanted to be a rain cloud when she was little. But when she was a little older she said, "Daddy said I have to be a people when I grow up, so I want to be an old lady." I wanted to be a teacher when I was little. I am still throwing the idea around. lol

Panda is pretty cool.People from all walks try to pretend them. Once in a while, a hungry intruded in a house and broke the stuffs. However, the house keeper don't blame the panda and just let him go. So, u kown, the panda is precious.
