I was an interesting child, very talkative - in fact I said my first word at eight and a half months ('Otsat' - translation: 'What's that?') and my first sentence ('Aura naughty, Aura mack Livy' - translation: 'Laura naughty, Laura smacked Livy', yep, a complete tattle tale....) when I was 10 months old. I also walked around 9 months and refused to eat anything but Weetabix and McNuggets from the age of 11 months and 18 months.Wasn't I a delight?
As I got older and I gained a little sister, my interest in the world around me and my inquisitiveness only increased and, subsequently, I may have made my own conclusions on some things. I was reminded of this fact by a conversation I had over the weekend so decided to compile a list:
Things I thought were true as a child
* That the world was once black and white and only got painted later on, I asked my Nana this when I was three
* That people that died in films really did die and had been chosen because they were sad
* That writing cheques was a clever way of getting out of actually paying for things, as you could just give people a bit of paper instead of real money, I never understood why people ever accepted the paper - they must have been really stupid....
* That all cats were girls and that all dogs were boys
* That there were Boy Colours and Girl Colours and they were as follows:
- Boy Colours: blue, green, black, brown, grey
- Girl Colours: pink, yellow, red, orange, white
* That 'invaluable' meant that something had no value and was worth nothing at all. I often got confused as to why the Famous Five would have long and complex adventures looking for completely worthless treasure
* That cash points just gave you free money - I could never understand why my Dad never got the most he could each time

What did you believe when you were little?
