When I was about 5 or 6, my Dad would tell me that if I played with my belly button too much (which I did a lot) that I would fly around the room (like when you let go of a balloon). Now 8 years later, I'm still suspicious...
When I was about 7 I was lying on the couch, watching tv, and I guess my shirt was up enough so that my navel was visible. My Uncle came over to me and said "Aha! I can see your belly button!". Then he poked it and told me I was going to explode in 10 years. I freaked out, crying until he told me it was a joke.
ok so when i was little i used to think that if u pluged ur belly button u couldn't breathe so i would never let any1 touch my belly button!!! hahaha
I used to believe I had a fuzzy monster living in my belly button, until my friend came and plucked the lint out while I was sleeping!
I always had a big outie bellybutton. Mine sticks out nearly an inch! When I was little we would go to the pool and my mom always made me wear a two piece. I remember asking my mom why other kids stare at mine. She told me they lost their bellybuttons in the water so I better make sure they don't take mine. I was then proud to show my outie. And sadly enough, humiliated soon after for helping several girls try to find their tummybuttons under the water, lol.
My father told me that the reason that we had belly buttons was so that we could put salt in them for eating celery in bed. I believed him until I was about nine years old.
My Opa (grandfather) used to threaten me with two things: unscrewing my nipples, which would make my arms fall off, and unscrewing my belly button, which would make my bottom fall off. Of course, I was terrified! :)
I used to think navel was a dirty word. Somehow thought it was where babies came from. So whenever I heard the words "navel orange" or "naval" (pertaining to the Navy) I thought people were talking dirty.
My dad had a little beer belly, and I noticed that his belly button used to gather lint. I'd periodically remove it, and told him that I was pretty sure that was what belly buttons were for--collecting lint.
Your umbilical cord was attached to mom's belly button (in vitro) and that was how you got food until you were born
This one's about my sister: She used to think her belly-button was going to burst open,and like unravel.She'd constantly cry about it.
when i was tiny (5-7) i belived that if your tummy groled your bellybutton was the one grolling.
I used to believe that kids were born out of the bellybutton. I mean, that was the only logical explaination for why the bellybutton was on my stomach! Plus, my mom had a C-section n' told me how she had to get my brother taken out from there (and pointed to her stomach by her bellybutton) so what was I supposed to think!
I used to believe, because my dad said so, that my arms, legs and head were all held on by cords attached to my belly button. If my belly button were to fall off, I would fall apart. It made sense to me because that's how G.I. Joe dolls were made.
I thought that my belly button was the place where bugs could get in and kill me. im so stupid!
When i was little i thought that if you played with your bellybutton it would come undone and your insides would fall out.
I used to believe that babies came out of your belly button, and that's why we had them (I didn't take into consideration the fact that men also had them!)
When I was young i used to think when a woman wanted to have a baby , she just pushed her belly button and in a glipse a baby appeared. Lol. When I was about 5 i wanted a baby to have a baby too so i kept pressing my belly button. I was rather disappointed when I never got one.
My mother was once tickling her newborn grandsons belly button when the babys father walked in and threw a fit telling her to stop because if she didnt his insides would unravel. My mother just looked at him and then busted out laughing.
When one of my friends was a kid her nanna told her that if she touched her belly button then her tummy would fall out!!! She believed it until she was six.
