my little sister used to believe that instead of growing older, you grow younger. she asked me one day, " what was I like whaen I was 10" even though she was still 4! she's so cute! : D
I used to think that everyone turned a certain age, and you could take your teeth out of your mouth.
(Because I always saw my grandparents' teeth in water at night when we visited)
I used to think that when I was as old as my big brother, I would be a boy too. :)
When me and my friend were about 16 her little sister ( about 10) asked her how old she was. My friend told her she was 21. Her little sister told her she was lying because ' that's daddies age' Not sure how long her little sister through her father was still only 21
Until I was about 3 I believed that as I grew older my parents would grow younger and that I would look after them when they were little.
' Mum, when i grow big and you grow little.....'
i thought as a kid that grown-ups never were children. i was about three then. a few mishaps later, my relatives found it necessary to explain to me that they were once kids. i tried to visualize them as toddlers. i only got sick.
I used to think there were FOUR genders: Boys, girls, 'wrinkly boys', and 'wrinkly girls'. I was growing up with my grandmother as a third parent, but I was convinced she wasn't the same gender as me and my mom; how could a girl's skin get so wrinkly like a...a wrinkly girl's skin!?
On a similar note, I used to think height was the end-all indicator for age, so for a while I thought my dad was older than my grandmother (his mom). Years later, I actually believed that once you reached a certain age, you would shrink until you died from being old.
I Used to think that anyone older than me would die before me even if they are a week or less older.
Same thing with people younger than me
I usedto belive that if you didnt have kids, you would never get old
I believed that my grandma had a pet dinosaur.
My mom told me that when I grew up I'd have a different family (meaning a family of my own) and I used to get really upset thinking that she meant that when I got older I was going to be given to a different set of parents and different family.
I used to belive as i got older my parents would get younger and i would have to take care of them as babies until there body couldn't age as fast then they would die
I used to believe that when I got to a certain age, my older brother would 'turn small' and I would be able to be the older sibling. I believed that this cycle would last forever.
When I was a kid, I thought that when I became an adult I would be able to fly. I really looked forward to it and am still disappointed that it turned out to be untrue.
I was very afraid of kidnappers as a child and couldnt wait to be a grown up as i thought adults could not be kidnapped!
When you grow up you become the opposite sex. When I was a little girl I would often talk about what I was going to do when I was older and I would start out the sentence with, "When I grow up and become a man..."
I used to believe that disabled meant old, and so would say to my nan "Hey, why not go in the disabled parking space?" I wondered why when she refused.....
Yes, I sometimes wonder at myself....This was only a few years ago!!
i thought alzhiemers was pronounced old timers, i believed this till i was about 11 it made sense to me it was a disease old people get
My former brother in law (he was about 8) used to think that African-Americans were white people that had grown old. He thought that everyone turned black when they got older.
When I was about three years old, I remember that I used to believe that the year that you were born in didn't matter when figuring out age...I thought it was only months...so like if you were born in January then you were always older than someone born in August...so since my birthday is in June when I found out that my cousin was born in July I kept insisting that he was younger than me even though he was born the year before me.
