I used to think that everyone's birthday, including my own, always had to be on a Sunday.

I used to think that when couples went in the car together, the older one always had to do the driving, especially since my dad is older than my mum and drove before her, so my aunt and uncle, with my aunt being one year older, got a bit confused when I assumed that it was her that had driven to the house when it was actually him that did.

When I was little I believed that the world and the people that existed, but as I grew up I changed my ideology since I met many more people in the world, I also believed that all people are good but when I grew up I could make a difference in good people and Bad people, also when I was little I had several dreams that I thought I was going to fulfill but when I grew up I was looking for something to feed me in the future that was not in my plans, I also believed that my father was the best but when I grew up I still think about it, but in reality it's not like that

I thought my grandad would get older, so I asked him 'What do you want to be when you're older?'.

I used to think bumper cars or dodgems were for kids under 16 to take driving lessons, especially if they had their mum or dad with them! I'm glad I never drove one with my dad, and I don't drive now as an adult, or he'd probably shout at me in the passenger seat about being a rubbish driver, knowing what dads are often like with their daughters!

I used to believe that people only grew upto age 10 as I hadn't been taught how to count beyond 10 at that age.

My mother has a neurological condition where she has trouble concentrating on multiple things at once (not ADHD).
When I was a kid, I thought that this was an "adult" thing and that as I got older, I'd eventually lose my ability to concentrate on multiple things at once.
As I grew to be a teenager, I thought that I was the weird one and had some sort of mutation or other that allowed me to focus on more than one thing at a time.
It was only when I was about 16 that I learnt that having trouble focusing on multiple things at once was the exception, not the rule.

When I was eight or so, I was at the mall with my mother and got bored, so I looked through the greeting cards for something to do.

One of them had a message "you're not old until the fat lady sings" and when I opened it, it had an illustration of a large woman singing. I was worried that I'd then turn into an old woman.

Not me, but my cousin thought you had to be 30 to have body hair.

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 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!

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.

when I was little, I used to think that everyone was a child but someone invented adults to take care of us.

I used to hear about parents letting their kids go at 18, and I thought that, on your 18th birthday exactly, you'd have to leave. I played this doll game where my doll was 18, and I was standing on a stool saying, "Goodbye, Mary, I have to let you go."

My brother is six years older than me. For a reasonable amount of time I was pretty sure that eventually I would grow to be older than him someday...
