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.....'

When I was a 12 years old girl and my body started to change, I honestly believed that if I slept flat on my stomach, rather than on my back, my boobs wouldnt develop. I was a bit of a tomboy at that age and hated everything that was going on with my body, so I got the habit of sleeping that way (which I keep now 25 years later).
The funny thing is that Im quite flat chested!!

I figured that the key difference between grown-ups and kids was that grown-ups knew how to sit still. I was convinced I'd never learn how.

When i was little i was a really big tomboy...so i had the thought that when you grew up you would become the opposite sex(boys turn into girls and vice versa)...until i was about 6 i was extrememly disturbed that my dad used to be a girl.

I used to belive that as you got older you never stopped growing and that when you got too tall to live on Earth you had to be shipped off to some island of giant people

When I was little, my grandfather told us kids that he was so old, he served coffee and donuts to the Pilgrims when they landed here. He was pretty old, so we believed him!

When I was a kid I though facial hair on a man is what gave them the deep voice

When I was little I used to belief that my clothes shrunk systematically, instead of me growing...

When I was a kid I noticed that adults [liek my parents] were bigger than me, and that adults older than my parents [like my grandparents] were shorter than my parents, I thought you grew up till you were big, then you shrank back down till you were kid sized and started all over again ...

Since I had no sense of saving money or going to get a job before getting married so that you could afford to rent or buy a house to live in, I used to think that the moment you became an adult (spontaneously I guess) your mom would hand you a big stack of money and you would have to live off of that for the rest of your life. Yeah like that would happen!!

I used to believe that your age went up every year (1,2,3...) until you reached 18 and then you turned "adult" and all adults were then the same age. My Mum was quite upset when I said she was the same age as Grandma!

My son when he was aged 4 asked me: "Mummy when I am 5 will I have a 'five-head'?" Completely puzzled, I asked him what he thought a five head was and he replied "What my forehead will turn into when I am 5" (Now he has an 'eighteen-head'!)

see on them movies when a little kid throws up a football or whatever, and when he catches it he's all grown up.I once tried that and found out it didn't work.

when I was a little kid, I honestly and truly believed that dads couldn't run. I never saw my dad run, so I assumed that once you became a dad, (however you did that) your running ability flew out the window.

I used to believe that I would grow up overnight. One night I'd go to bed as a kid, and then when I woke up the next morning, I would be an adult. For awhile when I was a kid, every morning I'd wake up and check myself for boobs.

My mum told me her age was 35 every single year and I believed her.
On her '50th' birthday (when I was 10) she got a card from her workmates saying '50' on it. I thought they had sent it as a joke.

I used to believe that clothing would grow at the same rate as people. If you bought something that fit when you were 5, it would still fit when you were 30. In stores I would often stand looking at the tag of a shirt waiting for it to change from a 'Small' to a 'Medium'.
