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.
When I was little, I used to think old people carried deadly diseases because they were always dying. So everytime I walked past an old person I used to hold my nose so I wouldnt breath in any of there deadly diseases.
i used to think you had to pass an exam to become an adult, from 5-8 i was obsessed with studying how to care for a baby, how to drive and having posh dinners XD it wuz a laugh when my mum told me u age as time goes by!
When I was younger I used to Believe that adults were always adults, and that other kids were always their age.
in other words: I used to believe that everyone was born their age.
I wanted to grow up to be an angel, a perfectly valid occupation, I thought.
This was my younger sister:
When she was about 5 she told my mom that she couldn't wait until she was 12. When my mom asked why, my little sister replied "because when I'm 12 I can be a mommy like you". My mother laughed and said "Oh no you can't!" My sister got very upset.
When I was a kid I was adamant that I was not going to grow up. My parents thought it had to do with seeing the movie Peter Pan, but little did they know it was because I thought grown-ups HAD to listen to elevator music and always be serious.
i used to think that my parents were born as adults (in their current size and all) and i would get very upset thinking that i would stay a kid forever because i wasn't born as an adult!
When I was little, I always pictured teenagers as girls. I never thought of boys to be "teenagers" when they reached the teen age. I don't know why; I guess its because I never knew any teenage boys, only girls.
When I was about four or five, my grandmother had told me that because her birthday was on the 24th, and mine was on the 29th of the same month, that when she died and didn't have anymore birthdays, I wouldn't have anymore either, and I wouldn't get any older!
