I used to believe that adults were born adults, while children would have remained children forever
I can remember blowing a dandelion and wishing out loud to grow older than my older sister. I guess my concept of time was whacked, but I thought that maybe I would lap him in age...or something.
When I was little I knew my grandparents, but I didn't know that grandparents meant my parents' parents. When my mom talked about her parents, I thought she was talking about other people I had never met.
I used to believe that when my father went out from home he spied me with cameras to control if I payed videogames or I did my homework
I used to believe there are two types of grown-ups.
/ Type 1 would be the people who get married, become parents, and go to "work" (usually in an office) every day.
/ Type 2 would be those with an "actual profession" (as opposed to office workers) For example: teachers, bus drivers, firemen, etc. The main difference, however, would be that these people stayed single for their entire life, and couldn't have children.
/ In other words: Type 1 help raising people who would then decide between type 1 and 2, whereas type 2 serve the entire community.
I used to believe that my parents' real names were mom and dad!
I used to believe that a godparent was a biological relative, possibly a really old one (like a great-grandparent) since 'God' was supposed to be an old man.
Ok... You know when grown ups say: "You can be anything you want when you grow up" that it only means like a job? Well, my brother took it way too literally. My mom asked my 5 year old brother what he wanted to be, and he said, get this, a "Zoura" from Pokemon. She then looked at me, I was 13 at the time, and she asked what that was. I then spent an hour explaining Pokemon to my parents. And now Pokemon go is out? Oh my...
My daughter used to believe that when someone is fired from their job, it meant it literally.
I used to believe that if you kissed a boy at a young age, that boy will be your sweetheart when you become a grown up, no matter what. I saw a little girl kiss 3 boys in a row and they all ran screaming in horror. I then wondered how someone could have 3 sweethearts and believed that until I was 9. I'm 10 now.
Still have no idea where that belief came from. I'm a strange kid.
