When I was about 6 or 7 years old, my mother and I were invited to a baby shower. I asked her why my younger brother wasn't invited and she said it was because boys weren't allowed. I agreed, and said he would probably be embarrassed with all the naked people around. When she asked what I meant she soon understood what I envisioned as a "baby shower" was where all the women invited took off all their clothes and literally showered with the newborn baby.

About a week after my baby sister was born I was tired of her and I turned to my mom and dad and said, "I'm done with her, she can go back to the hospital now."

I used to think that everyone got their clothes from hand-me-downs. I always got my brothers old clothes so I hadn't even been to a clothing store until I was about 9 years old.

I used to think that my mother really did have eyes in the back of her head. I used to sometimes try to see if I could see them through her hair

For many years of my childhood I believed that men couldn't sing. This was solely based on the fact that my dad is completely unable to carry a tune. I really don't know how I failed to notice that there were plenty of men on TV and radio who could sing well.

We used to get a call from our grandparents in Europe every year on our birthday. My mother explained it was the middle of the night where they were.

Because of the bad phones lines then the voice on the other end sounded very soft. I thought they were whispering because everyone else was asleep, so I whispered too. That's why my grandmother always yelled through the phone "Speak louder! I can't hear you!"

I went shopping with my mum wen I was younger and she put a note in a machine (which gave you change for the shooping carts.) and all these coins fell out.
My grandmother gave me a pound note and I was so excited as i thought I was going to be rich until my mum told me she had put a 20 note in hence the 20 1 coins that came out.

I used to believe my Mum had lied that my father was dead. I believed he was hiding from us and would one day come back to surprise us. I could only hope...

When I was younger my grandfather and uncle got in a fight and my grandfather got punched in the eye. When I asked why his eye was all swollen they told me he sneezed and his eyeball popped out and had to be put back.

When I was young, around 6 or 7, I saw my mum taking some tablets in the kitchen. I asked what they were (I was very nosey/inquisitive and liked asking questions) and she said they were to 'stop mummy from having any more babies.'
By this point I already had a younger brother and sister so had a vague idea of where babies came from, in that they came from mummy's tummy, but I had no idea about what daddy's role was in it all.
For years I was terrified that when a girl got old enough she would spontaneously start having babies and that you needed to take these tablets to stop it.

When I was younger, my dad used to play at a football ground with his mates. I was really naughty so she told me to watch out for him on tv and keep quiet. I watched a 90 minute match looking out for him, but then I realised that it was the women's football championships!

When I was young I asked my uncle ( actually just a mate of my dad, but I didn't know that then ) why he was bald. He told me it was because he drove a converitble. ( he had a red MG ). I don't remember how old I was when I was told this, but I was in my mid twenties when I found out it was TOTAL CRAP ! ! ! Sooooo embarrased.

I admit that I have a creative imagination even to this day, but when I was younger and noticed a change in my parents' behavior or temperment, I would assume that my real parents had been abducted by aliens and that these new, strange, people were actually robots or aliens.

I'm sure everyone is aware of how when a child is born, the parents select who the godmother and godfather of their child will be. I believed that this was the case with all relatives, and I pictured my mother walking down the street, finding a sweet old lady, and asking, "Hi, do you want to be my kid's grandmother?"

when i was about 4 to 5 yrs old, i thought my parents were monsters, that looked normal people when i was arround them, but as soon as i got out of the room, they would turn to their monster shape. At that period, i always tended to suddenly open the door, so that I would see them as monsters, which I thought they were. But for some reason, i never caught them looking like that... xD
