My mom told me that women always had to wear a slip. So naturally, I believed that whenever she wore jeans, she just had to tuck in the slip into her jeans!
I had heard that people got their ears pierced by having the earring shot through their ear (with a gun of some sort). I thought that they stood you against the wall, took careful aim ... and if they missed, that was how you wound up with nose or eyebrow piercings.
My son had very light blond hair as a small boy and we called him our "little toe-head". He'd always say, "Nossir!" Years later he confessed that he thought we were telling him his head was shaped like a big toe. Poor baby.

When I was about five years old, my brother told me that there were 6 other people who were exactly like me in every way and they had the same name and everything.

I believed that there were seven of me until I was about seven years old.
I thought that when I closed my eyes no one would see me.
As a child I believed that clothes would naturally shrink over time; I didn't realize that I was growing larger.
I had an old nightgown of my own that was too big for one of my dolls, so I hung it in the closet to let it shrink. By the time I found it again in my closet, I had come to understand that I was getting bigger and my clothes were not shrinking over time!
Once, my friend's mum came into the room while I was at her house, wearing a gas mask and a see through shower cap, because she was sanding, and I thought she was playing dressing up, and she was being a nurse.

I'm a light skinned black person who went to predominantly white school. In gymnastics class one night, a friend's little sister asked if I was black or white. Before I could respond, my friend hit her little sister and confidenyly said, "neither silly, she's tan."
I used to believe that each sock had to go on a specific foot (like shoes). But I always had a hard time figuring out which sock belonged on which foot. I felt pretty embarassed to ask my mum for help, and when I finally asked her she started laughing. I thought this was because she thought I was stupid for not being able to tell which sock belonged on which foot. I was pretty confused.
