When people talk about sex, they call it "The Birds and the Bees". As a little kid, I was very confused. How could two animals of different species have babies?

When I was little, I thought that after you got married, your babies were shipped to you in boxes with airholes.

When I was young, my parents told me that babies came from God. Not very explanatory. I had seen bits on TV about doctors & hospitals & mothers strapped on tables to give birth--so I worked out that when a baby was due, the doctor would stand in the hospital parking lot and wait with his arms out for the baby to drop from heaven. They strapped the mother to a table so she wouldn't get excited & jostle the doctor. Why did her belly get big? God made it happen so the doctor would know when to go outside & wait! :)

My father had a rather generous belly when I was young, one which made quite a lot of noise. As I would lay my head upon his stomach, listening raptly, he would inform me how long before the puppies arrived. I was nearly eight years old before I discovered that dad did not have puppies brewing within!

I used to believe that mommies gave birth to girls and daddies gave birth to boys.

When my brother was little, my mother asked him if we knew where babys came from. He replied, They come from ChildWorld. (then a toy store in Massachusetts)

When I have questions, I consider my mom pretty darn trustworthy. I usually believed a lot of things she would tell me ... and then would proceed to tell others. I didn't understand sex, so I put some ideas together and asked her about it. I asked her if conception occurred after two people peed on each other. Unfortunatley she said, "yes."

When I was about 2 and half my mom & dad brought my baby brother home from the hospital. When my mom asked me if I knew where he came from, I responded oh so confidently with "Yes. He came from K-Mart." I thought that since I got my babies from K-Mart, my baby brother must have come from K-Mart too.

Up untill I was around 8 or 9 I knew very little about sex and reproduction. I thought that when someone had sex both people just looked at each other naked...just standing there.

Also, when I was little I would hear stories about womens water breaking before they would have their baby. So, I thought that if you drank a WHOLE lot of water you would get pregnant...let's just say that I don't drink much water anymore.

I was told when I was very young that babies were created by combining the DNA of the parents. Until I was five, I imagined that the parents became momentarily intangible, then passed through each other to accomplish this.

When I was really little, I used to think that it really was possible to make a girl from "sugar, spice, and everything nice"...I tried to mix a bunch of sugar, tea leaves, sparkles and candy hearts in our toilet and backed it up so badly that the pipes almost burst..needless to say I was in trouble for the longest time.

I used to believe that babies all sat on a conveyor belt in heaven: babies of all kinds (humans, turtles, dogs, etc.). Then they drop off into their momma's arms.

when my mom explained how babies were made, I asked if people had to have intercourse for every baby, or if they did it once and the babies just kept coming after that. After I heard her answer, I was amazed that the Catholic family across the street had done it seven times!

When I was a kid I thought that in order for a woman to become pregnant, a man would have to take a special pill; digest it and eventually poop it out. Then the woman would have to find the pill in the mans poop and eat it and she would become pregnant

i used to think that everybody has been the opposite gender at least once in their life, sometimes more. i would say, "oh, yeah. i remember doing that when i was a girl!(im a guy, in case you havent figured it out yet)" I would also say things to my sister and mom like "do you remember when you were a boy?" kinda makes you wonder...

i bet i worried a lot of people then......

For a long time, I thought that I came from Sears, just like everything else my parents bought. I imagined that my parents went to Sears and picked me out and that I was enclosed in plastic shrink-rap and stored in a large refridgerator with a bunch of other kids.

When I was about 9 I looked at my mom's drivers liscence and and saw where it said 'Sex:F' (meaning that she's a female). So, genuinely concerned I asked her, "Mommy, if you failed sex how did you have me and my brother?"

When mom explained that unborn babies eat through the bellybutton,my sister and I believed pregnant women would feed their babies by placing the food (i.e. a chicken leg), in their belly button and the baby would just reach out and take it. -We always wondered where the bones went.

When I was a kid I felt terribly jipped! For the longest time I was convinced that black women produced chocolate milk and white women produced regular milk. Being white, I was upset to find out that I had missed on on the chocolately goodness of chocolate breast milk as a baby!
