What is your earliest memory?
2 or 3 when my mom was hosptialized.
I was 1 1/2 y/o. I was standing behind the front door, using the door jamb to pull myself up enough to look out the window by the door so I could see my mom talking w/ someone outside. She didn't know I was behind the door and shut it on my finger- next thing I remember is sitting between my mom and my grandma w/ my finger in a Tupperware bowl full of ice. I've seen pictures of me and my poor bandaged up broken ring finger- funny, I don't remember that bandage at all, just the door/window bit and the bowl of ice.
Five when I attended my mothers funeral.
i have the worse memory ever.... probably why im such a happy person.
i have memories of photos, but an actual memory.... maybe 2nd grade, and it isnt a clear memory. I can not visualize much of it, just remembered a small event. But then there are HUGE gaps. I can barely remember events in high school.
The destruction of Hurricane Carla .Our house was wood on a pier and beam foundation so we went and stayed with my grandparents.It started hitting on my birthday .The power went out and on my mom started cooking bacon ,somehow thre grease caught on fire and she threw it in the sink and the curtains above the sink window caught on fire....by then my dad and grandparents were getting it out...clear as a bell.My grandparents river house simply disappeared I remember seeing the foundation where the river house had been.Back at our house it was still there but my play house had ants everywhere .They had come in to escape the water...it was very scary.
2 when I was at the funeral home with my dad. I told my mom things about it because I thought I dreamed it and the color drained from her face because every thing I said was right.
2 when I got my first puppy
