your earliest memory

I was just looking at some baby pictures and it got me thinking...

What's your earliest memory? How old were you?

Mine is my mom holding me while watching movers move a mattress into our new house, I was about a year old... people tell me that's really young

I was 2 when we moved so it has to be at age 2 or earlier. It was in the apartment we lived in before my parents bought the house I grew up in. I had an orange stuffed dog, Coco. He had brown ears. My brother used to rip off the ears and my mom would sew them back on. I remember being in our room at the apartment screaming and crying cause he ripped off the ears, again. My mom, grandma, or anyone else who could sew was always sewing those damn ears on.

That poor dog...I still have it somewhere. There's several color thread around the ears from all the times they were sewn back on. My brother always ripped off the ears of all my Snoopy's too. He was a meanie back then but now he's the nicest guy in the whole world.

My literature course is acutally discussing the questions of childhood memories at the moment.

For me, it's either my third birthday or finding our first two cats (one has since died) in a garbage bin.

3 1/2

The Beatles' debut on the Ed Sullivan show.

I begged my parents all day to let me stay up past my bedtime to watch it.

I was five years old and had to be admitted to the hospital for a bad case of Strep Throat. I remember the nurses telling me that my mom could not come and see me, because of an operation on both of her feet. Low and behold my mom did come to see me walking into the hospital in slippers.

When I was about 2 or 3 years old, I remember standing in the front hall on my older sister's first day of school. I was begging Mom to let me go to school too, and she said I had to wait until I was older. I didn't want my sister to leave me though. After she left, I stood in the front hall, crying and pounding on the door cuz I wanted to go to school too.

I WANTED to go to school...stupid kid...

I think I mostly just wanted to be with my sister.

To calm me down, I remember Mom laying a blanket out on the living room floor, getting a bunch of my toys, and watching Sesame Street with me.

i would say probably about 3 years old for me. there are times that i will say something about what i remember to my parents or older sibilings and it wows them because it usually was something that took place when i was a toddler.

I'm not sure if this is my earliest memory, but I can vividly remember one time when I crawled out of my crib and fell flat on my back on the floor. I scared the crap out of my parents- they came running into the room and were really worried that I had hurt myself. (I was fine, just winded.) I was probably around 2 at the time.
