    I always thought it would be cool to be a meteorologist. I'm fascinated with weather, and they are wrong half the time anyways! Other than that, a marine biologist or archaeologist.

    ETA: wow! Lots of -ologists.

  • I'd do my "side hustle" (I own a music therapy business and work primarily with kids with special needs) full-time. It just wasn't in the cards for me right now because we moved to where we are for DH's grad school and it's only a 2 year program, and there were no full-time jobs in music therapy when we moved.  Hopefully when we move closer to family in 2017 I'll be able to figure out a part-time working arrangement so I can stay home with LO part-time.  :)

  • I would love to be an author. Fiction and non fiction. My problem is more time and inspiration, though I could use some more training too.

  • I would love to be a job coach for adults with disabilities.
  • I would love to be a wedding planner! Or something music related like play flute with the symphony 
  • Love this question! Like HGRich - I would love, love, love to be a writer.  I recently have been thinking that journalism (esp broadcast journalism) would have been a cool career path too.

  • I have always wanted to do photography, but have no "real" experience.  I would love to own a children's clothing boutique as well.
  • I always kind of wanted to be a cop. Specifically a detective. Also, a college professor. That's just not how things played out.

  • I would make my crafting hobby/starter business a full time thing, not just selling at craft fairs on the weekends...I would have an open studio to craft and try new crafts, have other crafters come and share, a place for a store of local crafters, kids craft parties/group events...clearly it's a longtime dream
  • I'd love to a real estate agent.  Though I'm sure there's a ton of grind behind the open houses.
  • Write and illustrate children's books

  • I want to be a biologist.  Not really sure what kind.  Micro, genetic, or marine, maybe.  I enjoy reading about them all.  Also, I think it would be interesting to be a quantum physicist.  Unusual, I know and I certainly don't have a math brain, but I'm fascinated by it.

  • Oooooh ... wedding singer, cake maker, writer! 
  • I want to be I love being crafty so I would love to earn a living from my craftyness. I'd also love to do marketing and promotions full-time. I do a little bit now and love the strategizing and creativity.

    @Ekzerr I owned a wedding planning company up until DS was born. I loved my brides but you give up a lot of family time, especially if your SO works a standard 9-5. That being said, it can be a lot of fun!
  • I would help obese people lose weight by teaching them food principles and no-nonsense about weight loss.
    Me:  35 year old FTM, a busy city banker living in London, and a constant worrier. 
    My DH:  French guy, car fanatic, best husband ever.  
    Our baby boy:  Due on 17 April, currently 37 weeks.  I can't believe it - I made it to full term!!!! 
    Last measurement:  3150 gs at 37+1!  This is going to be a big baby :)
  • I would love to be a writer. I do some freelance stuff, but I have a thousand ideas for novels bouncing around in my head and I would love the time to write them.

    or, I would want to be a conservation biologist (so, use my degree for something other than teaching, haha) going out and saving polar bears and sea otters.

    or both. ;)

  • How funny my choices have already been mentioned... I'd love to bake cakes or work as a park ranger too. Or...something that involved me traveling and providing commentary for everywhere I went. Yeah, that sounds good too.
  • Professional beer taster. Is that a thing? 
  • I'd love to be a midwife but the hours aren't conducive to family life.

  • I wanted to be a meteorologist when I was younger. I used to track the weather using the newspaper! I'm not sure what happened, but I think when I started taking the career tests in high school and kept getting banking-related results. I figured I wouldn't pursue it. 

    I am a planner by nature, so I would also like to be a wedding/even planner. I'm good with people (although I don't like it) and I love seeing everything come together.
