What do you want to be...

Does anybody ask children "What do you want to do when you grow up?", anymore?

This question was standards question asked to me when I was introduced  to an adult as I grew up in the 1960's. I have read many stories about Walt Disney asking children he met this very question.

I cannot speak for other children of the 60's, but I remember the answers I gave because they did change form time to time. I wanted to be a "magical" Nanny, and an actress, an interior decorator, a movie director and an owner of a baseball team. I pictured myself in each role I was deteremined to fulfill. Looking at my life now, I think there is a little bit of all of those aspirations in all that I do... with perhaps the exception of the baseball team owner.

So I have begun to ask the children "What do you want to do when you grow up?" I think we all need to aspire to be and do something. Don't you?
