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.

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.

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!

My older sister told me that at the age of 16 girls turned into boys and boys turned into girls. I was so mad that I had been born a girl because that meant I wouldn't get to wear makeup or wear prom dresses when I grew up (because by then I would be a boy).

I convinced one of my best friends that when men get old, they don't have enough strength to push hair out of the tops of their heads, and that was why they went bald and why they get hair coming out of their noses and ears. We were fourteen at the time... She still hasn't lived that one down.

When I was little, I was determined to grow up to be a firetruck, and it took my mom quite a bit of talking (and probably bribing) to convince me that I couldn't be one.

I used to believe that when you grew up that you got a book that explained everything because of a calvin and hobbes comic where calvin's dad lied about the book. I remember asking my mom why we had to go to school when we would eventually get a book that explained it all. How gullable.

This wasn't MY belief, and technically it isn't a "belief", but as a teenager my Mom had babysat a lot of ridiculous little kids. Evidently, one day my Mom asked one of the girls, "Lucy" or something, what Lucy wanted to be when she grew up.

"I wanna have my very own WATERMELON STAND!"

I guess she liked watermelons?

I used to believe that people who were in their "early twenties, etc." or "late twenties, etc." actually aged either slower or faster than everyone else.

Once when I was, I guess 7 or 8, I woke up in the morning and, finding myself not being able to remember falling asleep, drew the obvious conclusion: I must have been a baby when I fell asleep, and now I was a big kid! So I strut downstairs like the big kid that I know I am, go straight up to my mom, and say, "notice anything differant about me?". She looked at me, and clearly stumped, replied "no, you look the same to me." I was crushed.

In kindergarten I finally admitted to my mom that I never wanted to be a teenager because teenagers have to go on dates with boys and take off their clothes.

She assured me that the clothes part was completely optional.
