when i was 3, i heard that children are like whoever gave birth to them (genes) and so i thought that girls gave birth to girls and boys gave birth to boys...
I knew about the whole sperm]egg/penis]vagina thing when I was 5. My dad explained it pretty well, but one thing I didn't understand was how the sperm came out. I thought testicles were sperm, and every man had only 2 of them, so they could only have 2 kids. (I didn't know anyone with 3 kids) I thought that grown men's testicles were on the end of their penis instead of at the bottom and when they had sex one fell off inside the woman. Thank god It isn't like that...
When I was about 9, I saw the multiracial "Cinderella" movie on TV (the one with Brandy and Whitney Houston). For about the next year or so, I believed that if a black woman and a white man had a baby, the baby would be Asian.
I used to believe that when I was in my mom's stomic, there was a flashlight, picture of my mom, and a blanket already in there.
Babies came from pills. My mom told me that when a woman wanted to have a baby, she went to see her doctor and he gave her a pill to swallow. Inside her stomach, the pill would grow into a baby!
A friend told me about this one:
She asked her Mum one day about babies were 'made'. Her mother replied that she and my friend's father had thought about it a lot and decided they both wanted to have a baby. The next day at school my friend told our whole group or six yeard old buddies that what had to be done to get a baby was think about it very hard at exactly the same time.The trick to is was that you couldn't discuss it. This synchronicity of mind could only be achieved by two people who loved eachother very much. I believed it, too.
This is from when I was 5. I somehow understood that a brief time each month was tied to reproduction. I had read about sperm cells and egg cells, and I knew that babies came from the union of them. However, I figured that the sperm cell and egg cell met through oral contact--kissing. Kissing during a certain time of month produced babies. Also, I figured that the baby, who had been in the *stomach*, where it could get food from the mother, had to come out the same way it went in. So I basically believed that babies were vomited out. It's funny how almost-right can be so very off.
When I was 3 I popped the big question to my dad: "Where do babies come from?". My dad, being a somewhat embarrassed scientist, and not feeling quite up to explaining sex to me, instead decided to give me a very detailed and quite accurate description of artificial insemination, starting with the man "peeing" in a petri dish, and all the way to implantation of the embryo.
I thought this was rather involved, but believed it for years.
when i was younger i thought that babies could see out of the mummies belly button
When I was little, whenever I asked my parents where babies came from (I must not have believed them or forgot because I asked more than once), they would always say they had found me underneath a leaf. I believed them up untill I asked my brother, who said I was adopted which was also a lie. The whole thing ended around the point where I thought babies came from adoption centers which were underneath a leaf. Untill my parents bought me a book of Human Anatomy, thats what I believed till around 5th grade.
My neighbor girl told me that "crazy men can have babies"
Well Whan i was a kid I always thougt that a mummy and daddy would sleep next to each other, kiss, and then the tiny baby would crawl from the dads belly button into the mums and grow there...and when it was time she would...barff up the baby. I thought this because my parents talked about cleaning the baby after it comes out...i thought BARFF!!!
I used to believe that when a man touches a woman and when he sleeps with her she gots a baby. When I was about 7(before 4 years!) my uncle touched my hair and i started to cry and scream ˝you idiot im pregnant now and i didīnt wanted to have sex!˝ When I was 8 my mom bought me a book about puberty and then I realized.
when i was little i thought that you had to have sex twice as hard to have twins or three times as hard for triplets!
When I was little, I asked my parents how babies were made. Their response was that you would pick them up on the streets. So for a certain time I actually thought that was how babies were made until I learned about it in school.
When i was small, i use to have a Baby Book. In it was a chart of my First teeth. However, at the time i thought it was because thats where i was born, out of my mothers mouth! A
A lot more painful than you would first imagine...!
My Aunt always used to tell me that babys came from the stork (as many people are told),but One day I asked her "How do you get the stork to come?" and she told me you had to call him...and as the curious kid I was asked her "HOW?!"...Ahe told me that when two people really love each other they take off their shirts and let their Belly-buttons press together to call the stork!
When i was little, i used to think that the way my mom got pregnit was that the docter gave her a pill.
When I was very young, I used to believe that women had girl babies, and men had boy babies. I mentioned that to my mom one day, and she promptly gave me "the talk" and pulled out a book about sex and pregnancy.
When my mother was pregnant with my little sister (I was 5) I thought the "baby inside of Mommy" was a little doll sized version of a 5 year old kid and my mother's swollen belly was a little two story doll house inside with wallpaper and doll furniture and the whole bit.
