I used to think that birds were the only type of animal to lay eggs and that people, cows, and goats were the only animals that made milk. I didn't know much as a little kid.

That if a pig loses its voice, it's disgruntled.

My Sister Cindy Once Believed That If She Kissed A Frog She Would Turn Into A Frog Too!

I used to think the smoke detector went off when there weren't enough "smoke-peckers" around. They were little mosquito-like bugs who lived in every house and pecked away all the smoke before the "beeper" could go off. I was friends with the one at my house. He had a baby sister and he didn't like getting wet in the bath.
When I was young my parents took us on a cruise. We were going snorkeling but I have always been terrified of the ocean. I was terrified that the hammerhead sharks below were going to hurt me when my dad told me that hammerheads were vegetarians. I have always believed everything my dad said as true. It wasn't until I was in my twenties that I realized that he had lied. The sad thing is I believed it so wholeheartedly I had been telling people that same thing for years. Now all the weird looks make sense to me.
Until I was 24 years old, I believed the missing "link" in the chain of evolution was the name of an animal they were looking for, as in they were looking for the animal "Lynk".
When i was younger i believed that when you died your soul use to go into a monkeys body
I thought that rats were boys and mice were girls, and that colts were an entirely different animal from a horse. I also thought that parakeets and canaries were the same animal.
I thought Spongebob's parents were cookies (they looked a lot like it) and I wondered why two cookies could have a kid that was a Sponge.

When I was in the third-grade, my teacher told me that we were adopting a manatee. We had to donate a dollar so we could adopt her. I was so excited and waited every day for the tank to arrive. (I also imagined places in the classroom where we could put it.)At the end of the year I asked her why the tank still wasn't here, because she had told us that manatees need to live in water and swim around. Then she told me that we weren't actually getting a manatee and that we were just donating money to help her. I was very disappointed that day.
I used to believe when i lost a tooth, if i put this under my pillow, a mouse called Perez will take this in the night and it exchange this for money
But that belief changed when I grew up, because I realized that there was no mouse, but it was my parents who caught the tooth and gave me money.
This left me very sad but at the same time amused me to know how my parents tricked me
I would again ask a girl to find my parents and to get more money for my teeth.
I thought that if I left plastic Easter eggs out overnight, God would make them hatch into plastic dinosaurs. My parents may have encouraged this belief for a few weeks...
