  • I remember sitting in a high chair at meal time and crying just for the sake of crying. No idea how old I would have been, although we moved from the place I remember when I was 2. I also remember waiting by the door for a neighbor. That would have been about 2.

  • I swear to this day remembering waking up in my crib and looking on the floor and seeing bugs crawling everywhere. I remember crying for my mom and dad. I have no clue how old I was and why I was seeing bugs on the floor (there really wasn't any) but to this day I swear my old house was haunted or something cause I had more issues growing up in that house.

  • You know those little toy doggies that bark and walk and then sit down and flip over? I so remember being like 2 and one of those jumping at me. And me being happy about it.

  • My parents were renovating the house I grew up in and they would put me in a playpen so I wouldn't get hurt, I was 14 months when they started and I remember my Grandpa holding me off and on. I also remember when my Mom let me walk around and I stepped on a nail, it went right through my foot, I stopped walking for 2 months. I was around the same age.

  • i get confused with the stories i have been told and the thing that i actually remember, but i vividly remember getting out of the car and walking up to the door of my kindergarten class, and telling my mom she did not have to walk me inside anymore that she could just drop me off from now on........and i remember songs and nursery rhymes we acted out and sang in kindergarten, but everything b4 that is just stories my mom has told me! and i read a book once called the secret of your childhood memories........and it was awesome cuz school was always important to me and i grew up to be a teacher.......and my moms earliest memory is ppl laughing at her for her wearing their handmedowns and she grew up to spend a ton of $$ on clothes.......so they really do shape who you are.......your early memories......i think the book was by kevin leman.............
