As a young child I used to believe that if my belly button knot came untied, my skin would fall off.

When I was in second grade, I spent hours slacking off in class trying to turn my "innie" belly button into an "outie" one.
I had never seen an outie before, and so I thought the only way people got outies was if they did it themselves.
I was so convinced I could do it, I used every tool available, from my fingers to tweezers, to the eraser end of a pencil. All that resulted was a whole lot of pain and discomfort.

I thought belly-buttons were the way that the insides of your body got water, and so I dutifully splashed water into my belly-button each night when I took a bath so my insides wouldn't dry out.

When I was growing up, my Dad used to say that if you pushed your belly button, your legs would fall off. He would chase me and my sister, trying to push the belly button and we would go shriking through the house. I know that it is silly, but still to this day I don't let anyone touch my belly button. Unfortunately, my kids don't buy into that story so it is another memory that won't coninue.

I used to believe that only males were allowed to show their belly buttons as it seemed whenever males had their shirts off it would be showing. However, girls back then hardly ever wore bikinis, never had their bellies showing, and when a girl did have a belly button showing it was a big deal. Even my female cousin used to say how lucky I was to be a boy because whenever we went swimming mine was always showing and she loved to look at it. She’d always complain how she wasn’t allowed to display hers. To further this belief, in gym we boys had to take our shirts off sometimes and had our belly buttons showing even in front of the girls, while the girls were always kept well covered in their gym outfits.

I used to believe that men had sex through a woman’s belly button and somehow that’s how she got pregnant. As such I believed that it was part of a female’s private parts.

I used to believe that belly buttons were the knots left after the umbilical cord was removed. I thought that the sticky-out kind was a different sort of knot.

I used to think that showing your bellybutton was really inappropriate. I remember seeing a poster of the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat with Donny Osmond on it showing (gasp) his bellybutton. My mom told me we were going to see his show, and I said, "No! I don't want to see his bellybutton!"

Up untill the age of about 7 or 8, I was completly convinced that the reason we all have bellybuttons is because when God made us in his giant oven the way he knew that we were cooked was by prodding the middle of our bellys (like a fairy cake). It also explained the two varieties of bellybuttons; the innie and the outie. If you were not done then yoour bellybutton would pop out after being poked, hence outies.
If you were done then they would stay in.
Unfortunatly this belief was shattered when dressing my baby sister just after birth, I was most disgusted to fing a large brown 'worm' instead of a neat bellybutton.

I used to think that your belly button was a hole into your body and when it gets fiddled with your finger would touch your stomach and poison it.
