I grew up thinking babies came from their mommy's belly buttons! I literally thought your belly button would get big, the baby would crawl out, and then the baby would forget how to crawl again lol.
I was 12 or so before I had the "talk" and learned the truth.
My mom and husband still pick on me about this.
I used to think that if someone poked my belly button, it would open up. I would freak out when someone would poke my belly button. I have my mom to blame.
When I was 3, my Dad told me belly buttons were for filling with salt to dunk your celery in when you were eating it in bed.
my sister told me once when catching me playing with my belly button that if i poked it too much i would turn inside out. I was so scared i started crying thinking that i might of done it too much already when i asked her about this she just said "all we can do is wait and see" i was absolutely terrified that i was going to die and to this day i dont like touching my belly button, im 22.
When my mom was pregnant with my sister (I was about 3 1/2 or 4) I noticed that her normally innie belly button got flatter and more shallow as her belly grew. I assumed this was the purpose of a belly button- it was just twisted up extra skin that would unfurl to make room when the woman's belly grew when she was pregnant. I assumed men had them for the same reason they had nipples- decoration.
I was informed by my mother when i was young that if I scrubbed my belly button too hard in the bath, it would 'untie''. Until about the age of 12 I was wary of this situation.
I asked my dad (when he was naked after taking a bath) what his belly button was. He said that it was from where the Indian shot him with an arrow. It never occurred to me to ask where MY navel came from.
my dad told me the day that u can unscrew ur belly button so i tried nd theen he sed no by hospital so i googled it only 2 find out he was liein nd am 16 lol
When I was little my brother used to pile pillows on top of my stomach and lay on them. Since I was clastrophobic, it felt like I couldn't breathe. For years I continued to think you could breathe out of your belly button and thats why I couldn'y breathe when he did that.
When I was little and learned about how babies were made, I also learned what exactly a belly
button was. Well, the fact that it was just a knot scared me, because I thought it would unravel if I messed with it too much, and all of my insides would come pouring out. Since then I've always hated my belly
button being touched, even though I eventually learned that it can't happen.
I was convinced that bellybuttons did something and worked like actual buttons. for a week I was running around my house pressing my bellybutton seeing what it would turn on. then, when I realized my bellybutton wasn't turning anything on I told my mom I was running away to the circus because I was broken. she laughed and I was so confused.
When I was little, I used to believe that you could unbutton your bellybutton, and that if that happened, all of your skin would fall off. I fiercely protected my bellybutton from the approach of strangers.
I used to believe that when my mom was pregnant her belly button was a speaker where I could talk to my little sister or brother.
I used to believe that if I played with my belly button, the knot would come undone and all of my insides would spill out. Thinking about it still makes me uneasy.
i used to believe that playing with your belly button would lead to your insides pouring out
I used to believe bellybutton shirts were shirts that had a big cartoon bellybutton on them. I always wondered why they weren't allowed in grade school...
My mother used to tell me that if I picked my belly button I would implode and fly around the room like a deflating balloon. When I grew up I realized it was just weird to pick your belly button.
My Parents told my little sister that they would put a special screwdriver into her belly button and unscrew it, causing her butt to fall off. I was 8, and had an outie (I was the only one in the family who had one), and asked how my mum would fit a screwdriver into by belly button. She said she would use a bottle opener. I went and try to pull it off when she wasn't looking, but I never succeeded. My sister is still trying to unscrew hers though...
My Grandpa used to tell me for years that he was someday going to unscrew my belly button and my legs would fall off!
When I was little, I used to think that belly buttons were there because that's where the baby came out of.
