annabanana89 :  Also used to be convinced that black and white movies meant everything in real life in the “old days” only existed in black and white as well

I used to think this too! I remember asking my mom or grandma what was it like when the world finally became colorful

My niece used to call mermaids “mernaids.”  She also used to ask for “candycans” at Christmas time.  We never corrected her because it was too cute, lol.

lauralaura123 :  When I was little I couldn’t really say my “R”s so when I found a cute ring I wanted, I said “Mommy I want that wing!!” And she was like what? What wing? There’s no bird!! Hahaha

This one is pretty embarrassing, but when I was like four or five I asled to my parents “How come Michael Jackson and Michael Jordan’s names are so similar when one is black and the other is white?” 

It’s probably important to know that I grew up in the 90s so you know what Michael Jackson looked like when I was a kid, but that still doesn’t make any sense!

My daughter called yogurt “udi” 

my son said “pepper” in this low pitched demon voice for like a year and a half.

lauralaura123 :  spaghettie was pronounced, “pasqetti” 

I’d mix spanish and english in my conversations because I thought eveyone spoke both languages.

I’d yell into the hallway and shake my finger and yell at something while doing the whole tongue sticking out at ‘nothing’. My dad woulod see this and later in life told me tht it would freak him out a bit as nobody else was in the house at those times.

annabanana89 :  I did the same thing!! I was asked in preschool or kindergarten what I wanted to be when I grew up. I loudly told everybody I wanted to be a pony. My teacher said I couldn’t be, so I then replied that I was going to be a bird!

I’m not sure how old I was, but I was just learning how to read. I was that obnoxious kid that would try to read everything from street signs to labels out loud. Well, one day my mom took me to the local co-op, where she would buy everthing from spices to bird seed in bulk. I saw this bin labeled ‘Niger seed’. I yelled out loudly “Look Mommy, *insert horrible racial slur here* seed!”. She was horrified, and tried to shush me, but I guess I kept repeating it until she snapped at me and said the ‘g’ was pronounced like a ‘J’….

When I was 4 my parents built a house.  Our contractor was a friend and I associated him with being very helpful.  In my mind Andy Lewis is helpful.

 

The next association was that ladybugs are very helpful…. thus I started calling ladybugs “Andy Lewis’s”

Oh look mommy, there is an Andy Lewis!
