What do you want to be when you grow up?

What do you want to be when you grow up?

My two preschool-age girls love to dress -up.  With My 1st Career Gear by Aeromax their imaginations soared beyond the princess dresses and crowns that litter the floor of our house every day.  When they tried on the career gear, each instantly became a doctor and a chef, switched outfits, and started all over again.
