    I can't really remember, but my brother went through phases of wanting to be:

    - A police dog
    - A police horse
    - A fire engine


    Seriously.
    He was a lot older than you'd expect someone wanting these careers to be. :rolleyes:




    I did want to be a pokemon at one point. Yes, you read correctly, not a pokemon master like Ash, Brock or Misty, but a POKEMON, like Pikachu.
    Ah, aspirations!

    Dinosaur.....
    That would be so cool!
    I think I went through a phase like that. I blame Jurassic park!
    I vaguely remember wishing for a pet dinosaur. Oh, my 4-year-old odd mind!

    Same! Not so much that I get to gift money to toothless kids, but, the being-able-to-fly bit is pretty awesome.

    Zoologist for the largest part of my life, then I realised I had to be good at science, and threw away the idea.

    My son (who is 4) wants to be a train driver...but he also wants to be Ben 10, and a dinosaur, and spiderman, and sticky boy (his own superhero invention lol).

    When I was about 4, I wanted to be a clown. I took it far too seriously and would only answer to the name "Coco" for a few months.

    Then I wanted to be a palaeontologist. I was really serious about that one, I was a little dino expert :yep:
