I believed that adults knew everything. Literally. And since I'd heard somewhere that 18 was the official age when one becomes an adult, I thought that when I turned 18 everything would just come to me and I'd be like, "whoa".
i used to beilive that there was only 29 numbers in the universe and when you reached 29 you turned back into a baby
When I was about three years old my dad said that he was ten years old and I believed him.
I used to think up until I was about 6, that you stayed a kid forever, and that adults were always adults and were never kids. It wasn't until one day I heard my mom say something along the lines of when she was a kid. I asked, Wow! You were a kid too? lol I was shocked.
I believed that my clothes shrunk in my wardrobe over time, rather than me growing out of them. I thought everyone was born a certain size and had to buy new clothes when their current clothes had shrunk too small to fit anymore!
I used to believe that your social security number was for a special account the government started for you when you went to work, and they kept money you saved up for when you were old.
When I was about 5 I thought my mom and dad came into being the same time I did! For some reason they didn't exist before me, and neither did anyone else. Some people just came into existence older than others and then everyone got to grow up. I was shocked to see our photo's of my siblings when they were younger.
I used to believe that my clothes would get bigger so I could always wear them. My mother would tell me that some piece of clothing had "gotten too small" and I would insist that it would get bigger. I guess I figured that if I gotten bigger, and the clothes had "gotten smaller," they could also get bigger, since they were clearly changing size already.
That boys turned into women when they became adults and girls turned into men when they became adults.
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.
When I was 5, I used to beleive that you never stopped growing, and that when I was 100, I would be so tall, my head "would go through the roof".
I used to believe that grown-ups were born grown up.
i used to believe that when you grew up you could decide to be a fat mummy or a skinny daddy for some reason my sisters always laughed
i used to believe that boys and girls grew up with different ages so that girls went from 2year old to 4 year old to 6 year old etc and boys went 1 year to 3 yaer old to 5 year old etc! lol, i was weird.
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 friend and i told her little brother that she used be a boy and that he might be a girl when he grows up and he believed us.
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.
