5 Weird Things I Did as a Child

Hi Jammers! Today isn't going to be anything Animal Jam related at all, so if you're here for some AJ news, tips, tricks, or ideas, then this post might not be for you. But don't leave, because you may end up finding today's post interesting.

As you can see from the title, I'm going to be talking about some strange things I did when I was a little kid. Let's begin!

1. I thought that if I ever got hit by a car, I would turn into a Krusteaz mini pancake.

To keep us children safe from the road, my mom would tell us that if we didn't look both ways when crossing the street, we would get squished as flat as a pancake by an oncoming vehicle. Well, I didn't exactly know what similes and metaphors were back then, so I legitimately thought I would turn into one of those mini pancakes you find in the frozen meal aisle.

Ahh... those were the best.

2. I thought that if I stayed in the bathtub for too long, I would turn into an actual raisin.

My mom also said that if we sat in the bathtub for too long, we would eventually turn into a giant, purple, dried grape. And yes, I believed it. When I was younger, I loved taking super long baths and showers, but ever since I heard my mom say that, I tried my best to get in and out of the tub as quickly as possible.

3. I named our red wagon Benny, and sometimes I would have conversations with it.

When I was little, we had one of those Radio Flyer red wagons that we would drag up the sidewalk, sit in it, and ride it back down to our driveway. For some reason, I decided to give it the name ''Benny''... and it was a girl. Yes, I gave a wagon a gender. The weirdest part is that as I would pull it up the sidewalk, I would occasionally TALK to it.

''Hi Benny, how are you? Today I ate a nice bowl of Spaghetti-O's. I love Spaghetti-O's. I also played Hot Wheels with my baby brother. My trick-track was totally better than his trick-track. Oh, and my baby sister had some green poop. Her poop is like a rainbow. It changes colors a lot.''

4. I was so obsessed with the Junie B. Jones books that I started acting like Junie.

Please tell me I wasn't the only one who read these books. The Junie B. Jones series was basically all I read in first and second grade. Somehow I became so obsessed with the books that I started to act like Junie, and that did not go down well. No wonder I was in time-out so often. Looking back, I now realize how much of a sassy jerk I was. I blame Junie. *cringes*

5. I made up a song where the lyrics were made up of three different sounds: ''Aaaahhhh, oooohhhh, and wahhhh.''

Ugh... I really don't want to talk about this, but I can't think of anything else I did that was weird as a child right now, even though there's TONS of examples. Basically, I made up a song that goes like this.




Honestly, I feel bad for my parents.

That's all of the strange things I can remember, so um... let me know what kinds of things you did as a kid that were remotely odd or weird in the comments. :P

Bye Jammers!


  1. OMGOODNESS, THIS IS THE BEST. XDDD It was too funny!!

    Uh, weird things I did... I used to sing when I went biking and if I was sad, I'd make up this stupid sad song about how sad I was. But then I'd see someone outside, realize they heard me, and get sadder/madder.

    Hmm, what else... (I was a really odd child) OH! When I was a kid, I believed in Peter Pan and fairies (I read those Rainbow Magic books) so I decided one day, I was going to fly to Neverland. So I packed a bag full of 'important' things and got an old cellphone that didn't work too well and tried to set an alarm on it to wake me up at 12am. I stuffed it in a drawer, hoping it would muffle the noise. I was planning on going outside at 12am, go to the backyard, and find the second star to the right, and Peter Pan would come. Fortunately, I chickened out and tried to turn the alarm off. Unfortunately, the alarm actually went off at 12am and woke up my parents. Heh.

    I WAS ODD. I could keep telling stories forever.

    1. :O I read Rainbow magic toooooooooo
      And it made me believe some weird things......

  2. XD your poor parents when u acted like Junie B. Jones, Lol!
    And the Pancake one made me laugh so Hard! XD XP

  3. Wow! This is like me as a child. Except for I started acting like the backyardigans because I watched the show too much

  4. This post is to funny. lol I haven't read this blog in a month,but I will try to check back more often.

  5. Oh boy do I love these kinda post!
    So entertaining!
    I did a lot of weird things when I was a kid too XD
    I used to think that like in toy story, my toys would come alive after I left the room. O,O
    *Husky Ninja

  6. The Junie B Jones books were my favorite up until 3rd grade

  7. Lol!

    For me when I was a kid, hmmm.............. You could say I was a huge idiot XD Never wanna go back to the past, I regret it so much :P And this is probably why I'm a bit 'mature' I guess, ruining all the fun (Unless I find it amusing)


    1. There was also this time when I went 'mad.' I watched some documentary on tigers, and since nobody taught me that acting like an idiot will result in regret, I started rampaging around school/home, roaring like a tiger and making tiger noises (And being really stupid by clawing my sibling 0-0 ).

      I've learnt from my mistakes: Never do anything stupid.

      However, being associated with horses so much, I tend to 'canter' and 'trot' around the house when I don't feel like running/walking, and since part of the house is up a step (Like half of the house is lower than the other house, so there's a one step stair in the middle), I tend to put my arms out as if I'm approaching a 'jump', and 'jump' over it (Although I have had NO jumping lessons yet).

      Yup, I've gotta break that habit of mine before it turns into regret :P


  8. When I was little, I was OBSESSED with Pixar's Cars movies. I mean, the first movie was released on my first birthday, and then my dad bought me this gigantic picture book of Cars, and I loved the movies. I started pretending I was a Cars character and pretending that my name was 'The King'. And then I'd make my parents draw the cars characters and color them for me. And when I was little I liked when bad things happened to people. I don't know how to explain, it juts feels weird. And when I was 3 or 4 I put this little round green bead in my nose. I sneezed it out, though. And then ever since I was freakishly scared of little, round green beads.

  9. And when I was little I'd read Harry Potter to pretend to be smart. That was in like kindergarten and first grade. I remember my favorite part of the first book was when the Dursleys forgot about Harry's birthday, and what happened after it. And then my grandma would always personify toys, so I used to think that toys could come alive. Then when I was 4 or 5 I'd write love notes to myself. I'd be 2 different people(both girls) and then I'd pretend 2 people were writing love notes to each other. But then I wrote love notes to an actual PERSON that I 'loved'... and it got a bit cringy.

  10. PS I had a little Radio Flyer wagon, too.

  11. It was red, of course.

  12. Don't forget.. When I was little, I'd stick my finger into the toilet and then lick it. I'd aim to eat my pee at least once a month. Over time, that turned to 'once a year' and then when I was 9, I realized how silly it all was and stopped doing it.

  13. What weird things did u think? I used to think teachers lived in classrooms.... Im not that stupid now *xd* but i also am neighbors to my teacher this year....

    When ever I ate I would hum.....

    Someone should make a blog/page of stupid things people did when they were little!

  14. And I like to crawl up the stairs on all fours. I still do.

  15. Lol I used to love the Junie B. Jones books too. When I was younger, I thought that everyone who wore glasses was completely bind. That is, until I got my own glasses.
