When I was a child I used to belive that my father had forever been a 40 years old man.
When I was a child I used to believe that if you wrote a letter to the stork you would have a sister or a brother.
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...
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 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.
I used to believe that my parents' names were just mom and dad, i had no idea they had real first names until i found my mom's driver license which said "Lucy" on it, and i asked my mom what that means and she said it's her first name, I didn't believe her because I thought her name was just "mom"!
I used to believe that fairy godparents were real like in the TV show fairly odd parents. I would try to act as miserable as i could so I could get fairy god parents, but it didn't work. All I got was a sore throat, and grounded for 5 days.
I was absolutely convinced that I was adopted, and that my 'parents' were not my true biological ones. One day I even hunted around my parent's bedroom, and to my dismay found my birth certificate, with their names on it! I remember being so disappointed, and seriously considered whether they had put a fake one there, to throw me off the trail!
When I was little my dad told me that smoke stacks were cloud makers and that's how clouds were made. I'll be telling my kids too if they every ask hahahahaha
When I was five, I was convinced when couples got married, there were three sets of parents: one for each couple and a third set of older people the couple adopted as their shared parents. I was somehow convinced that because of this, Wilford Brimley was my third grandpa, even though nobody in my family ever met him.
I also remember that my parents used to tell me and my brothers if you crossed your eyes for a long time you might stay like that forever. Currently I see that my parents were not very kind when they frightened us with silly things like this.
As a kid, I was constipated a lot so pooping, I had to really push and it hurt, like when women gave birth on TV so I thought that you pooped babies and I found out it wasn't true when I asked my grandma how come pregnant ladies don't accidentally lose there babies when they poop.
I used to think my dad knew where every place on earth was. One time after playing with a random kid at the park, I asked him if I might go over to her house later, and he just shook his head and said "Maybe." Later he admitted he didn't even know who I was talking about!
When my brother and I made faces at each other, my mother would tell us that our faces would stay that way. But, that never stopped us from making faces at each other.
When I was 4 years old I used to believe that when you have a new sibling he/she comes with presents for his/her big sister. So when my littler sister was born she came with a Barbie.
When I was a child, I used to think that one day my brother and I would be in the same grade at school.
I used to believe that we can change our parents and pay them to be our parents
I thought that once the parents of an older teenager determined that their child had learned all of the skills required to be an adult, they would tell their son or daughter, "Now you are on your own." On that day, the child would become an adult and no longer had to live with their parents or obey them. I think this belief came from a commercial where a father and son were roping calves and the father sent the son out "on his own" to do the job by himself.
