  • My mom doesnt believe that I actually remember this since apparently I was 2 at the time but I remember moving out of our first apartment, we left in a blue truck...the reason I remember this is because I had a little wooden duck that you pulled along on a wasnt painted or anything....just a wood duck and when we got to the house we were moving to I never seen that duck again....I was 24 yrs old before my mom admitted she threw it away because she never thought I would remember it...HA MAMA!!! proved you wrong lol

  • I cannot remember a time before my sister was born...but I remember the day she came home. So I was just 1 month shy of being 3 years old.

  • I'm not sure how old I was but the one thing I remember is my uncle having won a Keebler the Elf contest and the prize was a replica of their tree house and he gave it to me and I loved it, I think it must have been the best day of my toddler life.

  • I remember my little sister coming home from the hospital. My mom was lying on the floor and I wanted to cuddle with her, but a stinky little baby was in my way. I remember pushing that little usurper put of my mommy's arms and lying down next to MY mommy. I was 19 months old.
    I also remember playing hide and seek in that house, we moved when I was 22 months old. So those are pretty early memories.

  • earliest memory would be looking at my older brother through the slats of my crib (would have been before my sister was born, so just over 20 months) and he couldn't get me out --he would have been almost 4 yrs.

  • i have 2:

    the first time i was left alone with my father. it had to be before my little sister was born or my mom was pregnant, i was around 3-4 and it was isreali independence day and my mom sent me home alone with him because she and my older sister wanted to watch the fire works and i was scared of them. i remember sitting on the tile floor in my room and looking towards the door waiting for my mom. i had never been alone before with my dad and i was TERRIFIED. i remember he tried to talk to me but i would not answer him and i cried. until i turned around and he had built a helicopted our of our leggos. my mom said she found us playing when she came back. it must not have been long that we were playing.

  • the second one must have been earlier than the first i posted. my parents owned a house where the kitchen had an opening like a window to the livingroom. there was a counter with bar stools you could sit on and watch tv. i remember sitting there and watching tv all excited because it was soooo cool. i must have been around 2 or 3. i also remember the vines of the plant that grew onto the house and i think they had red or pink flowers.

  • Its a toss up. I remember when we were bombing either Kosovo or Bosnia and watching coverage on tv. (I was 3? early 90s)

    I remember what happened in the seconds before I got bit by my dog when I was 2.5, and getting the 500+ stitches removed from my face.

    I remember watching SNL and eating trix on the couch (again between 2-3.
