Before I understood death, I believed that people would grow up and become really old, and then when they reached a certain age they would "grow down" until they became babies again, and then the cycle would start all over again. It never occurred to me to ask whether I had once been an old person already.

when i was little i had two very well thought out things that i wanted to be when i grew up..... in kindergarten i wanted to work at burger king so i could get free breakfast burritos... and then later on in life, i dumped that idead and wanted to be the ladies in the magic show who turned into panthers... the only thing that worried me was whether i'd be the front or the back.. lol

I was 4 and remember one day telling my parents that I had decided I wanted to be a boy when I grew up. My best buddies were boys and I didn't realize I was a girl or the concept of gender. I was very bummed when they said I couldn't be a boy when I grew up.

when i was little I was VERY VERY energetic and i wondered why my mom was never as energetic as i was.

My mom said that all of the energy in our life is put into a jar inside our bodies and as life went buy we take energy out little at a time and she told me that i should save up my energy until i get older.

I didn't move for 3 days

When I was a kid, no older than 5 or so, I somehow figured that, when you turned 18, you would get an important-looking envelope from the government. Inside would be your signiature, chosen for you, and you'd have to practise it. I spoke to my mom about this and she told me, amused, that you just make up your signiature on your own. =)

I honestly believed when I was a kid that some day, at some age (I wasn't sure what age) when I got older everyone would come to me and say, "The way you have been experiencing everything is not the way it really is. Everything is actually better. You just had to experience the bad stuff so you could appreciate the way it 'really is'." Funny, I just grew up and realized everything is just the way it is. You just have to deal with.
Sometimes it is good, sometimes it is bad. Deal with it!

I used to believe that we were all born one way; as adults or as children. I thought that I would live until the age of about nine and then die.

I used to think that if you were a boy when you were a kid, you would grow up to be a girl and if you were born a girl you would grow up to be a girl. So i thought my dad was once a girl and my mom was once a boy. a little weird dont you think?

My cousin is about 4 years younger than me but when we were little we would always play at my grandmothers house. Sometimes I would boss her around and she would always yell back "Ugh I just cant WAIT till im older than you!"

I didn't really know where to put this but here was one of my beliefs-
When I was little, I liked animals so I wanted to be a vet when I grew up. My older brother and sister told me that vets were mean to animals, but strippers were very nice to animals. So at church one day, somebody asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. Naturally, I said I wanted to be a stripper! (at least they didnt tell me that hookers were the ones that were nice to animals!!)

When my mom was little she thought that when you grew up you were either an indian or a cowboy. However she also thought when she grew up she would eventually turn into a boy (you can see how well that turned out for her, she is know a teacher)

My mom is a nurse, and when I was little, I used to tell her I'd put her in a nursing home when she got older, because I thought nursing homes were where nurses went.

I thought that, by age 10, you were a grown-up. I think I got this idea from babysitters who were only in their teens, but were in charge.
