  • I remember some things from 2-4, random scattered images or things that come back to me. I start having a pretty good memory of things from about when I entered school at age 5.

  • LOL! Me too - forgetting where the car keys are, my wedding ring, etc!

    My earlist memory is before I was 2 years old. I have this memory of the car going backwards at this ice cream place. My mom was shouting and some stranger was racing after the car. I asked my mom about it when I was a teenage and she told me it happened and I wasn't even 2 yet!! She was as surprised as I was that I remembered. My brother knocked the car out of park and mom and the stranger were chasing after the car before it got out of the parking lot!

  • I completely understand! I can remember when I was three years old and attending a "pre-school". I remember I wanted these white shoes with purple sparkly shoe laces that were high tops and had a little bubble on the side. I also remember that the lady that ran the pre-school always had a wristband attached to her wrist and her daughters wrist to keep up with her. I also remember that I had a crush on a little redheaded boy named Wes who wound up drying his hands on me after he washed them and I was so mad so I decided to get even. He then snitched on me. I can't remember where I put my keys, my cellphone, or Hopefully when I have this baby I can quit using the excuse of 'pregnancy brain' and fess up to the fact that my mind doesn't work like it used to...haha.

  • My first memory (no lie) is from being 13. :( I have flashes here and there of things, but not actual memories. They are more like watching a tv show than a personal experience. I think I had something traumatic happen that has caused my brain to block things out? :(

  • I remember my grandpa's funeral at age 2. I have no memory of him alive but the funeral left an impression.

  • LOL that sounds really familiar. It's crazy isn't it. I can remember my first day of kindergarten ( I'm 50 now) but I dare you to ask me what I had for breakfast this morning.

  • I remember being nearly 4 and out playing in an orange grove with my 11 or 12 year old brother. He had a black leather jacket and scooped something up. Later he gave it to me, and it was a red Barbie dress. Very vivid memory but nothing that's vague from before that.

  • I remember missing my dad really bad when I was 3. I told my mom he was looking for us and we needed to find him because he just lost his way home. They were divorcing. I remember missing him but I don't remember living with him before that!

  • I remember a LOT from when I was 4, and scattered memories from well before that - like poking a stray cat in the eye with a spaghetti noodle at house we left when I was 2 1/2. Poor cat...
