When I was five to six years old, i used to believe that my belly button had a knot tied in it by the doctors when
I was born and that if I were to accidentally untie the knot, my internal organs would spill out.
As a kid I used to play with my belly-button (amongst other things!). My Mum told me that if I wasn't careful I would burst, fly around the room as the air escaped and end up flat as a pancake. I stopped playing with my belly buitton!
when I was 8-9 my big sister told me that babies come from boys and girls bellbuttons so I put tape around my bellybutton(and if a baby comes out of your bellybutton you will get a new one small but new) then if you don't clean your baby's bellybutton the baby gets a baby, so then I asked my sister again (when she was waring a mid-dritf) then she told me the truth,(I almost fanited).
I have been that if you don't clean your bellybutton it grows into a baby and you get a new one.
When I was little, I was always afraid to clean my belly button. I believed that if you stuck your finger in too far, you could get it stuck in your stomach, then all of your digestive juices would come out. Um yeah, I just stopped believing that last year... I had to try it out before I believed it.
When my sister was little, my step dad tried to convince her that his belly button was a special cave for fairies. When she didn't believe him, he pulled a bit of fluff out of his belly button and blew it into the air, saying 'look, there's a fairy'. After that I would often find her staring at her belly button, waiting for the fairy.
when i was little my nana told me my belly button was where the indian shot me, so growing up i just carried it with me and even told my kids. my nephew who was 3 came to spend a week with us in florida, when he went back home my sister called and told me he would not sleep and would not play with his cowboy and indian things because i told him that, he also is 4 now and would like to know if the doctor can close it up so the indian will not shoot him, now i cant convince him i was only playig
When i was little i used to be petrafied of my belly button. i used to think bugs would crawl out of. i also used to think it would turn inside out and all of my insides would poor out and i would become just a belly button.
I used to think that you could unscrew your belly button and then all the air would come whizzing out and you would fly around the room like a balloon.
I used to believe that my belly button was a door to another world, my dad told me that you could only get there if you had a big enough belly button. He told me if i ate all my food it would get bigger. Unfortunately my belly got bigger in the process, but my belly button got bigger too, so a 2p coin fitted in it, so it's been to another world.
When I was little and on through most of highschool I thought that your bellybutton went straight to your stomach and I was terrified to touch it because I thought I would poke into my insides. I would get sick to my stomach every time I thought about it.
When I was 3, I asked my mom what "the hole in my tummy" came from. She said my belly button was a special hole I got when I was a baby, and it played a big role when you got older. According to her, "if dirt gets in it, and you leave it there, a big dirt monster will form inside your belly button."
So one day, I went to the beach. I wanted to get rid of the "dirt monster" in there, but my bathing suit was a 1 piece so I pulled it down and my mom got really embarrassed, because she didn't want people to see my chest. She said, "Honey, I don't want your privates showing." I replied, "Mommy, the sun will destroy the dirt monster!"
when i was little i used to think that if i ever got a cut or scratch on/ or near my belly button it would pop and i would bleed to death...my brother finaly threw my cat at me and my cat scratched me every where. i thought i was a goner!
When I was little I use to believe that my navel.... or anyone else's for that matter would break open. I use to be scared to touch my navel a lot, because I seriously thought that it would open up causing pain, blood, and my insides would pour out. I know that is not true, but to this day I hate it when my boyfriend tries to poke my stomach near my navel.
When I was small and in the bath my mum used to clean out my belly button ' To get rid of the potato seeds'. I hoestly believed this (potato seeds in the BB) until halfway through A level biology.
when i was young i used to think babys came out of belly buttons!!!!!
When I was small my Uncle told me that if I prodded too hard at my belly button I would explode. from then on I was very careful when cleaning it and would cringe at the thought of anyone touching it. Imagine my horror over forty years later when I had key-hole surgery to remove my gall bladder when they removed the three dressings - the third one was over my belly button and yes, they had gone in that way! Fortunately I hadn't exploded on the operating table!
I used to believe that potatoes grew inside my Belly Button - i can't remember why - but i believed it for a long time so kept on putting my finger inside my belly button making sure nothing was growing in there.
my belly button used to confuse me so terribly!! i used to sit there playing with it, trying to see if my "third eye" would ever open
When we were kids my sister always played with her belly button. My dad once told her that if she unbuttoned her belly button her legs would fall off. I used to torture her for hours trying to pin her down to unbutton her belly button
