    I used to think those little yellow dandelions died when they closed up at night, so my great grandmother found a bunch in her trashcan and had to explain to me that they were asleep. I still like to blow on the kind that drift through the air. :)

    I thought that the states in the United states were actually countries.

    One Halloween, my aunt told me that there was a witch who lived on the moon and she was going to visit their house that night.

    It was a ploy to get me to stay over at their house. I did believe her, but I didn't feel like staying over just to see the witch, as much as I would've liked to see that.

    You know how lots of people tell kids babies come from the stork? Well, I knew that wasn't true because I had a pregnant kindergarten teacher. So instead, what I believed is adults randomly woke up pregnant.

    One Christmas while listening to "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", it hit me -

    "...He sees you when you're sleepin'-" what is this old man watching me sleeping for? If I'm asleep, I'm not bulling anyone!
    "-He knows when you're awake..." oh great! Now he's watching me through binoculars (I guess) getting up and getting my morning started!

    I'm being Stalked by Santa! I actually got scared!

    I used to think that eating pumpkin seeds would make you grow pumpkins inside of your body. :P

    I also used to think that everything pre-1960 was actually black & white. Imagine my surprise when I learned that color has always existed in life. :D

    I thought people were trapped inside mannequins as a child and I would cry and cry whenever I mum brought me shopping and we'd walk by them - nearly frantic lol!!

    Even to this day, they creep me out :D

    When I was little, I used to think that there were ghosts in my basement, back when our basement was just concrete floor and insulation. My sister and I wouldn't leave each other alone downstairs when we were playing. If she left me and ran up the stairs, I wouldn't cry and run up after her because I didn't want to be left alone. Fast forward to adulthood, definitely not ghosts, but it was definitely cold and creepy in the basement...

    When I was little there used to be a DIY store next to the supermarket, it had written "Do it yourself!" in huge letters on it and I was like: Whoa such a mean store :'(:D

    I believed that eating an apple seed would make you grow an apple tree in your stomach.
    I also thought that Dora was real (she's not :'( )
    I thought that space had a floor where giant people watched us.
    I also believed that space had a roof.

    I was so gullible as a young child...

    -I thought that I would die if I ate toothpaste.
    -I thought that guys could get pregnant too. (This leads to a super awkward story that my parents love telling. I'll save it for another time...)
    -I always avoided vents and air ducts because I thought that I would be ❤️❤️❤️❤️ into them.
    -I hated going into those little playground tower tunnel tube maze things (don't know what they're called exactly) because I thought they would close up and trap me in forever...
    Pricefield forever.

    -In movies, when they show the main character at a younger age and then later at an older age, I thought they had to start filming when the actor was younger and then wait 10-20 years for the actor to grow up so they could finish.
    -Because of Toy Story I thought my toys could come to life when I wasn't around, but this actually terrified me and I had nightmares about it for years.
    -I used to think little elves had to paint all the lines in the road.
    -This one is a little bit gory, but when I was really little I went hiking with my parents, siblings, uncle, and cousins, and we had the unfortunate luck of seeing a dismembered deer leg in the woods. Everyone was looking at it and saying how sad it was and speculating what happened, and then I said, "Maybe the deer ran too fast down the hill and its legs fell off?" It took me a couple of years to comprehend why nobody took this suggestion seriously.

    When I was little I used to believe that when you turned off the gaming consoles the in game characters would be sleeping until you turned it back on again.

    when I was little, I always thought the people who worked at the grocery store lived in the store, so when I walked through the store with my mom I would always contemplate how they ever met up with their families, or even where they slept, so I asked my mom one day where the employees slept, and that gave her a really good laugh. she told me they didn't live in the store ._. I also thought when I was little that I would always be normal. haha you crazy little kid..
