I believed as a young child and then teenager that when one reached adulthood everyone did life correctly and never did any wrong doings. Needless to say I was so disappointed to find out grown ups were just as guilty of wrong doing as kids were!

Red hair tends to skip a generation in my family. When I was little, my parents told me that my grandfather had red hair before I was born but he had gray hair at the time. Somehow I figured out that the whole reason that old people had gray hair was because they had to give away their color to their grand kids when they were born.

I used to think that people were naturally assigned roles in life, such as being a parent or child. Thus, I didn't think anyone grew, they stayed the same way forever. I could never quite figure out why my clothes kept shrinking and I had to get more.

I used to believe all adults with jobs didn't have to take care of themselves or sleep, have a house, eat, an drink. I also believed adults with jobs never got sick.

When I was little (4 or 5 years old) I used to believe that my mom would send me to an izolated island with dinosaurs and somebody older would replace me because i didn't believe that i was gonna grow up. I remember looking at a chair and asking myself "why doesn't the chair gain in hight also?" :))

When I was young I believed that previous generations saw in black and white until color TV and movies came along.

I used to think when you grew up you'd get to a certain age and then get to choose whether to be a boy or a girl. And I was always gonna be a boy (I'm a girl) because is seemed more fun!! Thankfully I grew out of that one :S

i used to believe that as you grew older, you grew taller and never stopped growing. so in my mind a 100 year old person should be 100 feet tall, which baffled me since the elderly that i saw were shrunk and nowhere near even 7 feet tall
