What is your earliest memory as a child?
Posted 3/2/17
Mine was climbing out of my cot, and tearing paper from my postman pat book and eating paper for the first time. Can't quite recall what age I was.

Anyone else?

My uncle and aunt were farmers here in Central Missouri. In 1951 they finally could afford to add indoor plumbing to their 1911 2-story home thus ending trips to the outhouse. I was age 3 then. I distinctly remember as a child admiring the hot solder used as a bonding mechanism connecting the lead pipes together that had not totally cooled 100%. I wanted to touch it, play with it. It looked like silver Play-Doh. Good thing I didn't I guess.



v yeah, darn that math....no matter how one subtracts 2017 from 1948 it still comes out to almost 70. Possibly, new math will change some numbers around, suggest a new age fallacy to be correct and I'll magically be 44 years old who just thinks like an old codger.....or not.

You've lived quite a life so far, haven't you?

I must've been 2 or 3. Our house caught on fire and I remember looking at our home engulfed in flames from the street. My mom latter told me I was crying because I lost all my toys. Nobody got hurt

This is an interesting topic. In my counselling psychology class, I learned how to interpret our first memories (why they are our first memory, and in what ways does the memory reflect who we are today). If anyone wants me to interpret theirs, let me know! Could be fun.

My first memory is being about 2/3, being at home in my room playing with my toys, and freaking out once I realized I was the only one in the house. My dad had stepped out to get the mail down the street.

I remember it exactly. I was about 3 years old when I woke up, jumped out of my bed, looked in the mirror to see what I looked like, saw my mother sleeping in her bedroom and my 2 brothers were in the living room playing Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.

At least, I'm sure it was the absolute first memory I had.

Some people certainly remember a lot more about their childhood, very vividly! Thanks for sharing.

My first haircut. Guess I was around 3. I remember it pretty clearly because I absolutely hated it.

Age 3. Waking up in the middle of the night and looking out the back screen door as a ship coasted down the Mississippi River. It was all lit up but silent, like one of those illuminated deep sea creatures.

I remember a few still images from Disneyworld when I was 5. They aren't complete memories but they are my oldest.
