I think my first big memory would have been when I conked my head on a badly placed (and sharp!) corner in my house, trying to carry a blankie and pillow back to the couch to sit next to my mother as a toddler.
Wow, what a trip. I was watching myself above everyone else. I don't, however, recommend trying to invoke such a thing in the manner I did. Especially if you're a tad bit older---the young heal quick. ;P At least physically...
Wow G|M! My first memory was drowning. Cool huh? My older brother and I were on a lilo thingy, on a lake, with my dad pulling us along the water. First chance he got my brother pushed me off. Sank like a stone so I did.
Don't know how long I was sucking water but I was in a bad way when my dad found me on the lake bed.
Anyway, that set the pattern for my brothers continued attempts to affect my demise. And he wondered why I kicked ten bells out of him when I was 13 - which is one of my favourite memories - the shock on his face when he knew he was losing. To a girl. A small one too
My son told me several times as he was growing up that he could remember being born. I always accepted his statement as a true memory, although logic agued otherwise. I can remember an incident when I was two.
I was about 3 years-old. We had just come back from vacation and my parents couldn't find the key to the front door. The only window they could get open was a very small one that only I could fit through.
I remember feeling kinda scared because the house was so dark and quiet and I was not used to being alone in it but my dad kept talking to me through the window as I walked across the living room and unlocked the door.
Does anyone have a "happy" memory from that early? It seems it's usually something scary or traumatic that we remember from that early on...
I can remember things that happened when I was around 4. One image that I remember is me standing at the edge of a playground watching the other kids play - I was a shy child and it was tough for me at that age to make friends. That one image has kinda stuck with me!!
At not quite two, I remember listening to my Mum's tummy to see if I could hear my little sister 'playing football'. I also remember playing with an elasticated string of ducks stretched across the pram. I was probably about a year old.
I definitely remember pre-school. I'm not sure about before that. So I guess 3/4 years old? I had a crush named Max who was in my class. The playground had wood chips that always got stuck in my shoes. My teacher had a gold tooth. I got sick at my preschool "graduation" and threw up at the restaurant afterwards.
I get flashes of when I was a baby...really. I swear I remember lying in a crib with people standing around me; also another one being in a crib and seeing butterflies flying around me (my wallpaper was butterflies). But, after that I really don't have any memories before 5.
I remember back when my parents where moving and I was standing on my mother's lap. I remember a bridge and when I told mom about it, she told me I was 18 months old, and she remembered that was the move from the midwest to the west coast.
I have a scary memory of being a baby in my great grandmas house in San Diego and being in my play pen...and being picked up but no one was there...and then being sat back down in the play pen and then my mom came and picked me up...weird!!! (( TWILIGHT ZONE))
One event I remember before I was one, but most of my memories start around the age of two and three. After kindergarten my memories are mostly crystal clear because I always had an obsession with remembering years and dates, so I used to memorize my memories for fun.
I remember standing on a box looking at the snow out of the window. I must have been three years old because I was four when my brother was born and he was born in September. I know this memory was before my memory him being born.

According to the timetables of the Holy Bible it teaches that the flood was 4990 BC. It is now the year 2014. 2014 + 4990 - 1 (subtract one as there is no year zero) = 7003 BC years from the time God sealed Noah in the...
