Do You Remember?

What is your very earliest memory?

Mine is an image of my mother carrying me early in the morning to my babysitter’s house. I wasn’t very old, perhaps not yet two, so I have a feeling that my memory is a conglomeration of many mornings of being carried; the repetition, as well as the feelings of warmth and love, firmly embedding the experience in my mind.

Studly’s earliest memory is of his mother trying to help him get over a case of the croup with a concoction of honey and whisky. He doesn’t recall how old he was, but he’s certain he wasn’t school age yet. I wonder, was it his mother’s love or the whisky that made the experience memorable? At any rate, he hasn’t had croup in years.

It isn’t surprising that for each of us our mothers play such an important role in our earliest memories. I would imagine that is most often the case, with memories of fathers coming in a close second. I could do some research, but who has the time for that? Unless, YOU could help me! Yes, YOU!

What is your earliest memory? (Notice how I made my first sentence work as my last sentence, as well?)


Will she remember this epic Christmas of 2014?

Peace, People!

  1. My earliest memories are reinforced by pictures I have seen.
    I can’t pinpoint the first memory but it’s probably a tie between falling down the stairs or being woken up on Chrismas morning and going downstairs to see my grandprents, my auntie and a lovely doll house waiting for me downstairs. It was a great surprise! 🙂
    Great post! Happy New Year!

  2. Well, i think my earliest memory will be the period I was left in the care of my older sisters because mum had to go back to school. I was less than two and couldn’t feed well. I suffered from malnutrition as a result and was eventually placed on diet.

  3. I can remember my brother coming home from the hospital after he was born when I was three. I also remember him getting his first bath and Mema was there. Being a baby boy, he peed over her shoulder.
