I used to think that i was the oldest kid of my family because my birthday came first
When I turned 6 on June 6, I thought that the following year my birthday would be on June 7, and the year after that it would be on June 8 etc.
I used to think that i was older than my sister because my birthday came first(my birthday is on March 14 and my sister's is on September 17)
I used to think that a birthday suit was a special outfit you wear on your birthday
I thought that people with the same birthday were always the same age.
For my bday my grandma gave me a black and white stripey dress I was scarred outa my pants because I though I would be arrested after my birthday party !!! I cried for hours because I was so sad on how I would miss my family after a couple days I was so amazed how I did not get arrested
My Grampa is heavily into genealogy and because of that, my sister and I were told that I was related to King Henry the VIIIth and she was related to George Washington since we were very small. She just happens to share a birthday with him as well, so I thought that's why she, and only she in my young mind, was related to him for quite a long time!
I used to believe that people born on leap year would only age once every 4 years
I used to think my birthday was a national holiday and the whole world celebrated it
I used to believe that I was the oldest child. It wasn't because my birthday was earliest in the year (although that is true), it was because on all the TV shows the oldest child is always so much cooler than the youngest, and I thought since I am clearly so much cooler than my older sister, I must be older. Wow, I had a big ego.
I was born in 1998, but I originally thought I was born in 1999, because of a mistake my first grade teacher made. It was Chinese New Year of 2005, and I was currently 6, but I was about to turn 7 because my birthday is in April. My teacher was telling me and my classmates what animals we were in the Chinese zodiac, and she was unaware that I had not yet had my birthday that year, so she subtracted my current age (6) from the current year (2005), and therefore ended up with 1999. She thought I was a rabbit, but I am actually a tiger. She said she was a rabbit, and I find it a shame that she mistakenly thought she was the same animal as one of her students. Anyway, my mom was the one who eventually told me I was born in 1998, and I argued. So she had me subtract my age from the year. This time, it was after my birthday, so I subtracted 7 from 2005 and got 1998.
When I was 4 years old, I heard people say that I was 4, and I didn't recall any mention of my age before that. So I thought my age started at 4.
When I was five years old, I said to the 10-year old neighbor that if he were five years old too, then we'd be twins.
I used to think my birthday was a holiday everybody celebrated ]w]
I used to believe that people only grew, physically and in age, on their birthday.
When I was a kid and my birthday was just around the corner, my mom told me that the hospital called and got my birth-year wrong, and that I was in fact a year younger than we thought. I cried for hours before I realized that she would know what year I was born, seeing as she was there.
When I was little I thought I was the only one who grew. I used to tell my brother, who is two years older than me, that in two years I would be the same age as him.
i used to believe only special people were born on their birthdays. because i used to think that birthdays was just a personal celebration.
When I was younger, my mum told me that because it was a leap year, I would miss my birthday and would have to stay the same age for another year. Even though my birthday is in September and nothing to do with leap years, I believed her and cried for ages.
When I was younger, I would hear people say a baby was 18 months old. That left me infinitely confused about how long the first year of life was.
