Your Childhood Delusions

With every holiday season (and its influx of time spent with relatives) that passes, I realize I was assuming a lot of things about my parents that may not be true. For example, I thought they were pretty good cooks, and had decent decorating sense. Looking at old pictures and their current home, and recalling what they tried to pass off as Chicken Teriyaki, I’ve come the conclusion that maybe they were kind of terrible at both, but as a kid, I just didn’t have anything to compare to.

So what are your Childhood Delusions about your parents/siblings?
