familyShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
First off i was a weird little child but this one stands out to me... i was around 5 or 6 and my mom had a close friend who had cancer so she would wesr wigs. They all got a kick out of me singing and dancing for them. Well one night they had an award ceremony for me and i gave an acceptance speech. I thanked my mom and everyone and then i told the friend thank you for being a great prostitute. ....lmao i thought that word sounded very important and professional lol they laughed their asses off and i stared at them like wtf lol
One time my mom was watching a baby that used cloth diapers and, being like 4, I swear she took off like 20 layers of clothing to access his mess!
When I was a child , I used to think my dad had superpowers , he was my hero . Now , I know he doesn't have superpowers , but he is still my hero.
i used to believe that my parents were government spies that were in high tech disguises and reported to offices in other dimensions. i also used to believe that everyone i knew had access to a live feed of every single thing i did, including going to the bathroom and bathing, and judged me on my looks and behavior. AND one last thing. i grew up in a shomer shabbos (we kept the sabbath in the orthodox jewish tradition) house and was convinced that everyone i knew was involved in an elaborate hoax to make me think is was sunday when it was really saturday and therefore i was breaking the sabbath
I used to believe that my twin wasn't my twin and she's my neighbor's doughter, because my uncle say that it's impossible to have twin with different faces.
when i was 4 i believed that all girls were left handed and all boys were right handed it made sense becoz my mum and my older sister and me where left handed and my dad and my older brother where right handed.
I used to believe that parents were always taller than their kids. So when my grandma came over I never believed that she was my mom's mom because my grandma was the smaller one.
Once when I was around four or five, an older relative of mine told me I was so cute that he could "just fold me up in his pocket and keep me there". I'm still not sure what that means, but it terrified me as a kid because a pocket would be a terrible place to live!
When I was about 5 years old, I used to think that I swim very well. My father said that I was a successful swimmer. After many years, I saw my childhood photo and I realized I wasn' t swimming too good. Actually, I was swimming on the shore of the sea.
