Grace: What I Want To Be When I Grow Up- Following Your Dreams with Netflix

Disclosure: As part of the Netflix Stream Team, I received a welcome gift and a free monthly subscription. However, all opinions are 100% honest and my own. 

Now that Grace is finally starting to talk more, we're enjoying hearing how her brain works. The things that come out of her mouth crack me up and I wish I could just talk to her all day long. Four year olds have huge ideas for their futures and one of my favorite topics of conversation with her is about what she wants to do when she grows up. Obviously it changes daily, but some of my favorite answers regarding her future profession include:

  • lion tamer (shortly after we went to see the circus)
  • princess (obviously)
  • swimmer (so she can play at the pool all day)
  • ballerina
  • zookeeper
  • doctor
  • mommy
As I started writing this post I asked her what she wanted to be and she said "big or a penguin". We've been watching Octonuats on Netflix a ton this month so I'm not too shocked by the penguin comment. Her favorite character is Peso, the penguin Octonaut medic who "helps any creature who is hurt or sick, no matter what". She carries around her doctor's kit and pretends to be Peso by giving us check ups. We may have a future doctor in our house!  I love watching her dreams develop and I hope to always encourage her to follow her passions.
