My son? He is so eccentric, wild & bright I can totally see him being an artist, writer, or a musician. Based on his athletic abilities and interests right now I could also see him being a pro-extreme sports guy, like a skater or BMXer. Some sort of daredevil
Ok, who wants to go next?
Liz Lovin' DH DS (12) and forever missing DD (12/02/07)
From the withered tree, a flower blooms~ He's here!!! So crazy in love with my boy!!! 12/14/11
Younger son, I could see as an artist. He loves art and is a very sensitive soul.
Unassisted birthing, atheist, WOHM to 4 wonderful, smart homeschooling kids 17, 11, 6, 3
My dd (5) I see as a an extreme sports athlete. She loves anything & everything that turns moms hair grey. I also can see her having an interest in theatre as she cna be quite dramatic. She would probably also do well in PR.
Not sure yet about new baby DD, but she definitly tells us what's on her mind at all times, so maybe a protest organizer...
We like to joke that ds will be a model - he is most happy when we are changing his clothes!

My firstborn is in school to be a History teacher. She also works in a nursery (plants not babies) and is part of a band.
Secondborn is a med student. She wants to be a Pediatrician.
Thirdborn is a Marine serving in Iraq. She's getting out soon and wants to go to school. I think she wants to be a lawyer.
Fourthborn is into sports. Big into football right now. He wants to go into sports medicine.
Fifthborn is really good at everything. She is a good student in the math and sciences as well as in language (both English and German ) She is also an artist. She's thinking about law (in spite of our jokes) but the world is hers.
Sixthborn is into music. He's able to play an instrument quickly. I'm not sure what he wants to do with himself.
Seventhborn is a lot like my secondborn. He's naturally good at math and the sciences and can do well in language if he tries. He is also a good artist and is very creative.
Eighthborn is generally well balanced. She has amazing social skills and can work well with difficult children (she has much better social skills than her mother :LOL ) She really is amazing, she gets what she wants and makes the giver glad to have given. She isn't just a taker, she is a giver primarily but she also doesn't permit herself to be manipulated. I'm not sure what that becomes when she grows up.
Embrace the learning that is happening within the things that are actually happening!
My ds is a wild man. My dh's family is artistic... in every way and to all extremes. My ds's hands look JUST like his Papa's on dh's side (the major successful fine artist and advertising guru). He's a lefty like MY Dad (who is a farmer/fisherman/former highschool and college athelete) and he LOVES LOVES LOVES to run fast and faster and climb up and down ANYTHING. He's 2 and he can climb trees w/o limbs! He can shimmy up fire polls. He can dribble a basket ball! SO... my guess is that he'll be an athelete in highschool and maybe even college yet he's the worlds' most bright smart articulate and well spoken toddler. He can identify all the letters and numbers to 10 and can add and subtract (with objects, not on paper) already. He knows how to spell his name and all these attributes were just acquired over the last 2 months! lol... plus, he's a smartass. He LOVES to "get us" and "trick us"... so my money is on him being an attorney! hehe. But, who knows... it's up to him for sure!
DD#2 is anybody's guess--also a natural musician, who loves drums and flutes and all kinds of music, so I could see her being the professional musician of the family. But she also has wonderful fine motor skills, and is very exacting in everything she does, so sometimes I wonder if she will buck the trend of our family and be a surgeon, or engineer.
I suppose they could be both--DH and I are serious amateur musicians, but make our living doing other things, so there is the possibility that our kids will follow that path, too!
We are just hoping that someone in the family will make enough money to keep DH and me in the manner we could become accustomed to!

I'm going to respond both ways, what I think they would be great at (like the post asks) and then what they want to be!
ds11 is your typical first born over achiever! He loves order! He would make a great engineer type person. Totally white collar - lawyer type man! He loves science so anything in science. He wants to be a geologist.
dd10 (almost 10) is very observant. You should never underestimate her though! She doesn't dazzle people with her intellect like ds11 does, but she's smart. She's also got a mean stubborn streak in her that is amazing. She would make an unbelievable journalist/writer type person. She loves to write. She wants to be an avian vet.
ds8 can do anything! This child has more charisma in his little finger than Brad Pitt has in his body. He's just plain awesome. As the baby, he honestly could do anything. He's the whole package - best all around type. He's got a great ear for music - He would make a great Rock Star! He's so charismatic - he's a future President. He wants to be a CIA agent! Isn't that cute.
Trying to do the right thing with three kids and a hubby.
ds22, dd20, ds19
She, OTOH, wants to be an actress on Broadway, and she has done a lot of musical theatre and is seriously working towards this goal, so it's a definite possibility, too...
Single mom to Rain (1/93) , grad student, and world traveler
My eldest wants to be everything and anything- ideally working with his hands and creating- a chef, a builder, a woodworker- but he concentrates on craftsman skills, rather than fine arts. I could definitely see him working as a potter, or something in that field.
My 2 yo wants to be a dog trainer. She's obsessed with dogs and bosses ourpoor aged dog around constantly, so I could see that happening too.
Dd2 we have pegged (for now) as a technical scientist. The girl is currently driving dh and I crazy with her step-by-step analysis of how everything we have or eat is made and then brought to our house. She is also super fascinated with bones, one of her favorite toys is a skeleton model.
Dd3 we can't tell yet, she hasn't really become herself. She follows along with her sisters and does what they tell her.
Dd4 is too young, but nothing is going to stop her from doing whatever she wants.
Of course, if you ask the older three they will tell you, in order, that they are going to grow up and be "Sleeping Beauty, Cinderella and Snow White!"
Ds1: We think he'll be some suit somewhere but at night - a rock star!
Dd1: Anything to do with entertainment - she loves plays; music; etc
Ds2: A polititian. But no, not a green one. We've nicknamed him mr. alex p. keaton
Ds3: extreme sports. Dude!
Ds4: a midwife. he's so helpful and caring and sensitive to other people - especially when babies are around.
Dd2: miss her-own-character will spend her life backpacking around the world.

Dd (16 months old)- Too soon to even render a guess.
My son, who is almost 2 1/2, wants to be a daddy.
My daughter (2) is going to be a stripper with some sort of legal career on the side. Hey- strippers can make good money! :LOL
Me. With 1 spouse, 4 kids, 16 chickens, 74 matchbox cars, 968,562+ legos, a dishwasher waiting to be emptied, a washing machine waiting to be filled and a lost cup of tea in the house.
My youngest could be some kind of mechanic or engineer type. He tries to take everything apart and work anything with buttons. He even tries to adjust the table at the chiropractor's!
