Stupid Things I Believed As A Kid

Hey girl hey. And boy.

I know everyone reading this has at least one thing they thought was true as a kid but then grew up and found out they were totally off. Today, I’m going to be sharing 10 stupid things I believed as a child. Some are common and some are not. Before I start, I’d like to say this is a collab with CityOfQuiet. She might stop blogging soon so this might sadly be my last collab with her. 😢WHERE ARE THE TISSUES? She’s going to write about some things she believed as a kid AND stupid things she said as a kid so be sure to check it out! Anyways, let’s get started.

 

1. Babies

Yup, this is what you think it is. I used to think that doctors would cut your womb with a saw, then get the baby out. After that, they’d sew your stomach back together and you go home. I was so terrified! This isn’t too far off the alternate if the baby doesn’t come out of you-know-what but they don’t cut it with a SAW like what was I thinking? 😂

2. Marriage 

This is also what you think it is. This post is turning tmi really fast but I used to think that when you get married, you slept next to your husband, prayed for a baby and bam. 😂 As I got to grade 5, my theory sounded a bit off because what if you slept beside your little brother or something and just got pregnant like that (ew) so yeah, my older brother explained and I was scarred for a while. 😂

3. Breastfeeding

I used to think that you could pick the flavour your milk was (chocolate,strawberry..etc). I would always tell my mom to try and make the chocolate flavour for my siblings – smh 😂

4. Periods

Okay I put these 4 after each other to get the tmi things out of the way and THEN we’ll move onto “normal” kid thoughts 😂 So I thought that during a period, blood would gush out of your body like Niagara Falls. I was really confused to how I was going to take a shower or use the washroom (this was before my period btw) so yeah, turns out that doesn’t happen and we’ll leave it at that. 😂😂

5. Acting

I used to watch Turkish dramas as a kid and let me tell you, those were pretty intense. Cheating, kidnapping, divorce- literally everything you can think of. 😂 So back in the day when I thought everything was real and live, it went something like this:

John: I love you Jessica 

Jessica: Me too- I really want to spend the rest of my life with you.

{Scene right after that}

Natalie: John, why were you late?

John: We had lots of papers to go through today- I got you flowers!

Natalie: Aww John you’re such a romantic.

John: I love you Natalie.

Me: OH SHUT UP JOHN I’M GOING TO TELL NATALIE RIGHT NOW!

😂😂😂 You guys seriously. I thought everything was real and this thought was sadly ruined in 4th grade. 😂

 

6. Sound Effects

This sort of relates back to the last one but you know those sitcoms like Victorious, iCarly..etc. Well I thought the laughter and ooohs were from real people watching this in a theater. But turns out it was all sound effects- which I hate by the way. Like the director adds it after every sentence even though it’s not funny.

John: Hey Natalie

Sound Effects: HAHHAHAHAHAHAH

Natalie: Do you like eggs or waffles more?

John: Hm..waffles.

Sound Effects: HAHAHAHHAHAHHA

Natalie: You look off today- what happened?

Sound Effects: HAHAHAHHAHAHA

John: I got a phone call this morning that my grandma died.

Sound Effects: HAHAHHAHA- oh.

 

7. Geography

You guyssss I was sooo off with the map. I knew where everything was but the image in my head was way different. Germany took the place of Africa and Jordan took the place of France like what was I thinking?

8. Heart

Not only was I off on the map, but also on organs in the body. I feel like this is a common one though. I used to think the heart was a heart shape in the center of your heart. All the blame goes to spongebob!

9. Digestive System 🙂

I blame this on spongebob too! I used to think the stomach took up all the lower part of your body. No small intestines, no lungs, no large intestine, it was all a storage place for food. And then when it got full, you’d use the washroom. 😂

10. Toothfairies

This one only lasted a day but this one time when I lost a tooth, my brother said to close my eyes and walk around our carpet 10 times and by the time I go back to my room, there’ll be money under my bed. So I did just that and found money. When I went to put it in my “diy wallet” (which was an empty cassette case btw hahaha back in the day) – all 5 of my coins were gone and how many was I holding? That’s right- 5. So I put 2 and 2 together and realized my brother was basically regiving me my money like wow 👏

    HAHAHAHA this was SO relatable! I thought that babies were cut out of the stomach too!! I was such a dumb little kid. I also thought that when there were movies on at night, that it was live. 🤦‍♀️😂😂

    As a kid I believed that a doctor would cut open a woman’s tum-tum and get the baby out. I didn’t get to the details though, and I didn’t think about it a lot. And as I kid I believed that if you wanted a baby you’ll have to pray first, then ask your husband to pray, then ask your mother to pray, then ask your father to pray and so on. EVERYONE had to pray for you to have a baby. Then god will have to decide whether to grant you your wish or not. But then I started wondering how on earth does a child look like his father though? After all it’s the mother that gets pregnant. About a year ago, I decided to read a book about ‘reproduction’, don’t ask me why, I think it was because I wasn’t sure that the mother just got pregnant out of the blue, then BAM! I lost my childish innocence.

    Oh, I totally believed the baby one…I suppose it’s not a bad thing to tell your kid at the tender age of 4 or whatever. And the period one…hahaha, that’s EXACTLY what I thought when I learned what a period was. And now I laugh at how little and funny I was at 9, even though I don’t have my period yet. I love how funny and honest this post was.

    Very funny, but relatable post idea! I 100% agree of the digestive system one😂 I though it was just a bowl, and when you got hungry you could just open your stomach and eat stuff… ewww sounded better in my head smh

    I love the breastfeeding one! The ability to change flavour of milk sounds amazing! I used to think something similar to you about the periods thing – I thought once you got it, it would never stop. And, I was pretty off with the organs of the body too! 😂😂
