I remember being the youngest sibling and getting everything I wanted from my parents, and going everywhere with them all the time. I remember the first time I was not allowed to go after my baby sister was born. I was like 4. I was all of a sudden old news! I had been replaced. I still hate that witch! LOL (kidding) I actually do love her alot, but she replaced me in my parents eyes.
We lived in a house in Pennsylvania until I was almost 4. I have all sorts of memories from that house------------ I remember my room and sleeping in a blue toddler bed, I remember going to my sister's school (she's 5 years, 6 school years older than me) on a day where siblings could go with the students. So on that day, I remember that I had to wear a dress and was pretty ticked off that I had to be there and thought it was so boring. I remember falling down a huge ravine in our back yard to where a railroad track was. It is like all of these snippets of memories but vivid at the same time.
I always think about this with my little boys------------ what are they going to actually remember. On days that are super fun--------- I hope they remember this forever. On days I'm not the greatest mom----------- I hope they forget it.
My earliest memory was when I was about 2 years and 3 months old. I was going in for surgery and was talking to the anesthesiologist, telling her I didn't want the mint flavor, but only the bubble gum flavor when they put me to sleep.(they use the mask to put pediatric patients under). And I also said I wanted to show her how I can make bubbles with my mouth(basically spit bubbles) lol. I can remember them telling me to move beds, so I wasn't on the gurney, but on the surgical table. And then her telling me she was putting the mask on and I would be asleep soon. I can remember she was this tall asian lady, really nice. And my surgeon who I had been with for many years was standing there, too. This was my most major surgery and I don't think I really understood what I was in for. I was pretty calm talking to everyone. I think at the time, I had thought it'd be very minor like a surgery I had months before. Though this one landed me in the hospital for 2 weeks. But I was a chatty little girl in pre-op. lol.
I was 2 years old. It is the only memory of my parents being together. I woke up in my room from a bad dream that involved Goldilocks throwing a brush at me on my bed. I got up crying and went to sit with my parents who were watching Lost in Space.
Sorry- Reading at four and I have other memories that tie in with certain events that when I talked to family they remembered, however and were able to give me an idea of the the times involve. How on the rest of you were you able to verify timelines involved?
I think I was around three and everyone else in the house was asleep. I was crawling under the dining room table with a hair brush in my hand, determined to give our cat a good brushing. The cat had other ideas and he won. LOL He was alot faster than I was.
I spent a great deal of time chasing that poor animal! He probably detested me!
it was the first easter before my sis was born made me two..I remember being about 3 and mom going swimming across street and dad standing at door calling me to come in, I wanted to swim too ! good question about the age....I thought I was young cant imagine how others remember before 6 months.
