When I was a little girl, I had a strange imagination. Not only that - I was very, very gullible. Being the baby of the family meant being constantly told that random things were true. Even when they were so obviously not.
I thought it would be fun to make a challenge where we make lists of the 5 random thing we honestly believed when we were little kids. They could be lies that someone told you or conclusions your imagination led you to make.
Also, since this is about when I was a little kid, I only thought it was write that I illustrate this card with crayon doodles.
"I now pronounce you Mustard and wife."
When I was a little girl, I thought the food products that were commonly paired together were obviously married. Mustard was Ketchup's husband. Salt and Pepper, PB&J too. Even Apple Juice and Orange Juice probably had a fling.
My older sister was probably a vampire.
Debra, my sister, is my only sibling and since she's two years older than me, I naturally believed everything she told me. She was born on Friday the 13th and would tell me that when I slept at night, she was out being a vampire.
This WOULD usually scare me, but then she'd assure me that she was a good vampire that would protect me from other vampires. This made 'Little Kid Me' feel better about the idea of having a vampire sister.
Getting pregnant was a complete biological lottery.
When I was a little girl, I had a Puppy Surprise doll, which were essentially dog dolls that kept a 'surprise' amount of puppies in a velcro stomach pouch. The Puppy Surprise dog came with either 3, 4, or 5 puppies.
Naturally, I thought women were in the same boat. All of them were going to become pregnant one day, but the amount of times they'd have a baby would change from woman to woman. It would just randomly happen.
If I ate enough carrots, I would have superhuman vision.
Have you ever wanted x-ray vision? Just eat enough carrots. Carrots have Vitamin A - which, yes, is great for your eye health, but I grew up believing would give me some sort of ocular superhuman strength. I'd eat carrots all the time.
If I rubbed my earrings hard enough, I'd have magic powers.
When I was little, I was a huge fan of Jem. In the show, she would wear these amazing star-shaped earrings that she would rub to magically turn into her awesome rockstar hologram alter-ego. I had star earrings that I would rub all the time, but alas, it never worked.
And there you have it. Those are five things that I believed were true when I was a little kid.
If you decide to do the challenge, make sure to tag me in it. I can't wait to see everyone else's posts! (Also I hope you enjoyed my doodles. Shout-outs to Crayola and my camera phone.)
