When I was very little, I was allergic to pollen, and since it coated our car every year, my mom explained what it was and how flowers grow. Not long after I learned about how flowers were made, I asked how babies were made, and she explained it in what she must have thought a quite understandable fashion, especially for a 4-year-old. Only problem was, I connected the two, and for years and years I had visions of sperm floating through the like pollen every time a man peed, randomly impregnating any woman that happened to be around.

When I was in year 4 at school we where learning about Egypt and Iíll never forget when another boy told the teacher that in Egypt a baby was born every 26 seconds. I was totally amazed by this and I actually believed that all the women gave birth every 26 seconds. I was more worried about the thought of having to pick so many different names for that many children.

I used 2 think that my mom had 2 eat me 4 me 2 b born. I also thought that babies came from baby powder. It makes sense to a 4 year old. I always thought that if I added water to baby powder i would get a little sister or brother. I believed that until I made a mess of my bed trying to mix baby powder and water. That was when my mother set me straight...

When I was younger I believed that the moment before a person was born, they would appear before a tall desk with a thick book on it. The book was the story of that person's life, and they had to choose to read their life, or live it. The stillborn babies chose to read about it and the babys that were born chose to live their life is my logic. hahaha

Hi. I used to believe that when two people (a man and a woman) after they got married, wished real hard for a baby and if they were lucky, God gave them one! Sad, I know. I had such an innocent view of the world. ] . [, oh well, goodbye!

Before I understood sex, I thought sperm was something a man gave to a woman, who would then put it inside her. I imagined it to look something like a vitamin, that would then grow into a baby.

No one told me, but I assumed that when a woman was pregnant, she had to spend the whole nine months in the hospital. I freaked out when my parents asked me if I wanted a sibling, not wishing to part with my mother for so long. I didn't tell them why I was so upset, otherwise they could have set me straight. I'm an only child :)

top belief!

To explain my new baby sister, I was told she came from The Baby Shop. They gave me a big box of Duplo and said that this was from my sister. I thought they had got a special deal, Buy a Baby, Get Free Toys!! (My mum sold the duplo when I got older, I was really sad, I wanted to keep three figures from the set.)

When I was 5 I used to belive that a mother and a father prayed for a little boy or a ittle girl and the woman would get pregnat overnight and have the baby the next day! When i was about 5 (again) my mother said I came from her tummy and I said "Why'd ya eat me mommy?" after a long laughter she said "I didnt eat you honey!" I felt like a jerk! but when i said whyd you eat me in my mind i saw the big bad wolf eating someone lolololololololololol

Someone told my friend that if you drank a glass of vinegar that you could give yourself an abortion. She tried it and threw up everywhere!

When I was a just about ten I heard about erections (and sex is general) from a sex education class in school, from what I heard I though that the penis would stick straight DOWN when aroused. I was seriously concerned about this because I simply could not figure out how reproduction could be accomplished unless the woman was standing on her head.

I think that ten is too young for sex ed.

When I was about 7, my mom finally told me about sex. She brought out the word "genes". It puzzled me for a second but for some odd reason I asked "so, theres little blue jeans floating inside you?" i thought that they were jeans that somehow were smothered onto the baby. and thats why the babys were so wet and goey. she laughed and explained to me. what a mind can think up!

My parents were regular customers of Sears & Roebucks. We always had one of their huge catalogs around our house. Seemed like almost everything we had came from Sears & Roebucks. After seeing all the babies in the catalogs, naturally, I thought that is where I came from, too!
