My birthday was on a different day every year, assigned by my parents
I know this one is very common, but I'm gonna submit it anyway. I, like many of us, used to believe that stupid little kids were the only kind of little kids that existed. We all used to believe that at some point. I mean when you see an anonymous 5-year-old throwing a tantrum, or an anonymous 5-year-old doing bawling, or an anonymous 5-year-old whining, of course you're gonna believe that stupid little kids are the only kind that exist.
I used to believe that flicking lights on and off in a room would still the fire department sent to my house.
I used to believe when you got married you had to have a baby
I saw one of my baby videos from long ago. I was two years old at the time. My mom asked me how old I was, which I replied "two years old". Then she asked how old daddy was. I said "four years old"! At the time, I must have thought that my dad was not much older than me, because I didn't know how old people could possibly be. Also for a 2-year-old, four seems awfully old!
As a little kid, I used to believe that my parents had adopted me and they played a role in our familal's life, about all of our life. So I starting an investigation to know if my parents were a sort of robot or anything else. I listened at the doors, to spy their discussions. I finished by to abandon because I never found evidences, for the moment...
I used to think when you got older you had to become a mom or dad
I used to think that adults never cry.I think this might be common because when you were a kid and the adults would say "oh don't cry big girls/boys don't cry".
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.
