    Well my earliest memory is of me trying to run away from my mom in a supermarket big_smile, it's quite strange but that is what I remember, I was very little, a few years old I think.

    I remember my mom coming home from the hospital with my baby brother.  I would have been going on 3 years old.  I remember having pneumonia.  I was about 4.  I remember reading Mickey Mouse in the comic strips.  I was about 4 or 5.

    I'm guessing I was around 2, and my aunt was showing me and my older cousin moss on the rocks in my grandpa's backyard. I tried pulling the moss off the rock and she yelled at me.

    Getting stung by a scorpion at my forehead; profusely sweating and on account of it, getting my dress changed a couple of times; being taken in a bullock cart at midnight to the house of a quack to cure the ailment using mantras.

    I was two and sitting in the kind of car seat people used in those days, which was a lightweight fabric thing that was slung over the back of the front seat and held with big "hooks".  It had a plastic  steering wheel so the occupant could pretend to be driving.

    The car seat was between my father and mother, and the heat in the gray Plymouth was on, as the sun came in through the window and made me really hot and uncomfortable.  I was whining and pulling at the wool,under-chin, tie on the green bonnet I was wearing.  My mother (USUALLY and OTHERWISE a very kind and wonderful mother) kept tying the ties that I was pulling at, and she kept saying, "Why do you keep undoing the ties.  You look pretty."  (It's too bad questions/answers don't have mean-face emoticons because I'd put a great big one right here!  But I digress...)

    I don't recall actually trying to tell her I was hot or uncomfortable.  I know the woolen tie was scratchy.  I just recall whining and fussing.  I'm not even sure I was able to tell her.  I just know I didn't care how "pretty" I looked.   (mean-face emoticon would go here too!).    (but smiley-face would follow it too).

    I was curious about this myself, and now that I see some answers I'm very jelous. My earliest memories are from when I was 8 and 9, but I had a lot of head trauma as a child (they called me crash for good reason)

    My earliest memory is of my Father & I in a store where he is buying me a doll.  He left shortly after that, so I think that is why it has stayed with me.  I must have been about three or four years old.

    I remember being on my mom's hip while she was standing at the counter at a convenience store, and I was staring at these suckers being displayed on the counter. I had to have been 2 or so. Other than that, I don't really remember anything up until I was 10 or 11, which I do think there is something wrong with that.

    My earliest memory (or at least one of them), was when I was about 5 years old. My mother had taken me to the emergency room because I was having another asthma attack. She had to do this quite frequently because my asthma was really bad when I was a child. I remember on this occasion though, she was standing beside the gurney while we were waiting for the doctor to come in, and all of a sudden she started crying. She never said a word, but it really bothered me to see the tears rolling down her face. I think it was just hard for her to have to do this so often as she tried to care for my other 5 brothers and sisters too. I had never seen her so sad.
