While coaching a youth hockey program over the summer, an argument broke out among a group of 6 year olds on where babies came from. One child, among with a few of his friends believed that kissing is what got people pregnant. Meanwhile the other child was arguing that having a baby was random and that the woman pooped out the baby and the "type of baby it was depended on what the mother ate that day"
i couldnt help but laugh
I used to believe EVERYTHING, even inanimate objects were born. So one time I asked my Dad "How old is your truck?" *puzzled face* "Well how long ago was it born? And where are it's parents?"
I used to believe all babies came out as girls and later on in life some of those girls turned into boys
One day, when I was about 4 or 5, I asked my mom if giving birth was painful. She replied, "Not really." I was astounded at this because, at the time, I believed the doctor would take a knife right then and there and slice you right open and pull out the baby! How could it not hurt!?!?!
Sounds like a C-section, but not how I pictured it.
When I was wee, I used to think that Mums gave birth to boys (because i was a boy) and Dads gave birth to girls
When I was about 8 or 9 I used to believe that when a woman gave birth her stomach would rip open and the doctors would have to sew them back together.
i used to believe that when you had a baby it came from your anus and everytime you pooped the hole would get bigger so a baby could fit out of it later on
My parents were always honest with my sister and I about where babies came from, so I knew about sex and reproduction. My sister and I were both c-section babies, though, and I thought that was how babies were born. My best friend told me about natural childbirth, and I was completely horrified! I couldn't understand why ANYONE would do that!
When I was little, I was SO puzzled about how babies were born. I then made the theory that women gave birth through their mouths.
...I never wanted to have children after that [EVER.] I kept thinking I would die because I couldn't breathe. Then when I found out how it actually happens, I screamed and, still, didn't ever want to have children.
When I was about 8 years old, I used to watch a few TV programs from time to time. One of them was "Please Don't Eat The Daisies", which was a short lived sitcom about a family with four boys (two of them twins), similar in style to the Brady Bunch that came out a few years later. In "Daisies", the mother was kind of bubble headed, a bit wacky/silly. Somehow I had the idea that when a mother had a lot of kids, it mentally drained her, to the point where if she had too many she'd become really stupid. So I cautioned my mother not to have any more children (I was the oldest of 2). She asked me why and I said "because I wouldn't want you to become stupid." Well, I explained my crazy notion and she laughed, telling me it wasn't true. Even still, I secretly believed it might be true until I was a few years older and I asked a few "careful" questions of my elementary school science teacher, to later learn how silly the idea really was. ;-)
My Mom used to talk about the child that she lost before I was born, so everytime we went out I was really close to them just in case.
When I was about 7 or so and I had just learnt about masturbation I though that the good feeling that came from that was what giving birth felt like, and women screamed and moaned because of the nice feeling.
My husband used to believe that Labor Day was the day of the year when all the pregnant women had their babies.
I thought babies came out of the motherís bellybutton.
I used to believe that before my siblings and I were born, we all lived one on top of another in my mom's belly, and instead of coming out as babies, we came out as old as we were at the time that I thought this. So, my sister wouldíve come out a 15-year old, my brothers 14 and 5, and me 4. I wondered, too, how we all fit in there, because we were much bigger than my momís tummy!
I used to belief that girls are giving birth to girls and boys are giving birth to boys.. Until my dad said that it doesn't matter.. That girls can have boys and boys can have girls.. LOL
When I was 3 or 4 I used to believe women would deliver their babies by having the doctor stick is arm down mother's throat into the stomach and pull the baby out the mouth. Than the mother would just walk home with the baby in her arms.
When I was little, I thought my parents picked my brother from a cabbage patch. I was totally obsessed with cabbage patch dolls and thought that's where all parents got their kids.
When I was younger, about 5, maybe, I knew my mom had a c- section, though I didn't know the term for it quite yet, but I still knew she had surgery instead of natural birth. I thought for quite awhile that everyone had surgery to remove the baby, and that was natural, and the baby was stored in a special safe compartment of the stomach. I was a smart kid, but hadn't yet figured out how the babies got in there in the first place.
i use to belive whan a lady gave birth it came from her belly button.
