What YOU thought as a kid…

I am in the midst of writing a collection of thoughts from people about what they thought as a child. I would love to hear yours! For example:

“I thought that when you moved into a new house, the people that used to live there moved into your old house.”
Chris, age 7

“When I was a kid, I thought that when you got married and went on your honeymoon, you actually had to go to the moon.” Dana, age 5

What did you think as a kid? Let me know your thoughts and be a part of my new book: What I thought as a Kid. ***Please leave your name and an age that you thought it!***

D.M.

    When I was a kid, I was absolutely positive that all my toys and possessions came to life and had a big party the second I went to sleep, and then when I woke up everything would immediately return to its rightful place.

    When I was a kid…they said that Jesus lived in you. So I always pictured Jesus in my stomach sitting at a desk with lots of papers on it. Then when I drank something it would pour down on his desk and the papers would go all over and he would have to clean it up.

    I used to think that people lived in the radio. So, when you turned it on they would begin to play songs and or talk (ex. give the news or traffic report.) I always wondered how they lived in there and how they survived and how they got in and stayed in the radio. But I guess I just figured it was magic.

    I actually believed my parents when they told me that if you ate watermelon seeds a watermelon would grow in your stomach. I accidentally swallowed some seeds one time and wondered how big the watermelon would grow and how would it come out. I was pretty worried. Then I forgot all about it and lived happily ever after.

    To this day, when I swallow a watermelon seed I always think about believing that silly story!!

    I thought that when food entered the blood stream, it splashed.

    I thought french kissing was something people only did in France until I was in the 8th grade.
    Does that count or is it too lame to be considered a thought? I’m embarrassed to admit that it’s true.
    I am lame.

    When I was a kid, I thought cats were girls and dogs were boys. I also thought Big Bird was a girl?

    I thought the only thing that made pee was drinking something and the only thing that made poo was eating something.

    Thanks for the thoughts! Check back in Friday PM for the winner. If you could leave a name and an age that you thought these hilarious thoughts, that would be great!!

    I honestly thought I controlled other people’s thoughts and actions. Took a while to come out of that one. I’m okay now..

    I was a little boy, so I didn’t really think.

    I’m still trying.

    I honestly don’t know why I’m having so much trouble with this? I can’t remember anything I used to think. Too much repetitive head injuries.

    I thought that if you laid down while kissing you would get pregnant. I didn’t understand how your body knew if you were laying down or not…
