You know how many old ladies like to perm or curl their hair by some other way? I somewhy figured out that while woman's hair turns gray, it also becomes curly at the same. I never thought about why old men's hair doesn't curl the same way.

I realized, that the hair doesn't curl by itself just few days ago, and I'm 14.. I feel sort of stupid now.

When I was younger i believed that when you had children you could read your kids minds. I never thought bad things about my parents when they where near me until I was about ten years old.

My brother is just barely two years older than me. When I was around four, I got very fed up with him boasting about his age, so told him that I would catch up to him one day. So I prayed for tornado's to come on his birthday. Somehow I thought that would prevent him from turning another year older... as if it were the celebration part that makes a person turn another age. If that were the case... I think people would have stopped celebrating their birthday's long ago.
And ironically... the tornado's always came on mine.

I used to believe that when you got to a certain age you got to choose whether you wanted to be a boy or a girl if you were a girl. And I used to feel bad for boys because they already grew into boys and didn't get a choice xD

My younger cousin, who is five years younger, for the longest time believed that his mother was under the age of eighteen. This was because when the TV infomercials for toys came on, he would ask his mother to buy them. Well at the end of the infomercials the voice would always say "Must be eighteen or older to order." So to get out of buying the toys, my aunt would tell my cousin that she was under eighteen.
This went on for some time, and she got some strange comments from people after he had apparently told them she wasnt eighteen yet.
To date, this has been a running joke in our family.

When I was younger (6 or so), I used to believe that teenagers could only be girls. I had no idea what boys became, but the world "teenager" referred to a girl only.

I also believed when you became a teenager (around 14 or so) you grew long, straight blonde hair and your nails became permanently painted. Also, your face automatically got permanent makeup.

I couldn't wait to be a teenager.

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.

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)

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.
