getting olderShow most recent or highest rated first.
I thought I used to be big. I'd say "When I used to be big I could tie my shoes." or "When I used to be big I could read." I really believed it in my head. Just a small attempt at control from a small child.
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.
