My earliest childhood memory was when I was 5 and my dads band was practicing in the basement. I had these toy drums and I hung out with the band playing with them! :lol:

I had a cat that ran away. I was about 7 or 8.

The next memory I have is of a picnic alongside a creek, and a picture I have seen shows me older than I recall ... but I suspect my family had been there more than once.

when i was about 2 my father made a harness and he fixed one end to a cardboard box with the top cut off, and the other end around the neck of our german shepherd dog. he sat me in the cardboard box and walked the dog around the grounds while the dog dragged me in the box over the grass. we also had a kangaroo that my father rescued as a joey. the dog and the kangaroo used to play.

my very first memory was when the dog suddenly chased after the kangaroo, and my father lost his grip on the harness and i was dragged at full speed as the dog chased the kangaroo around the grounds.

i fell out of the box.

My earliest childhood memory, was laying in a crib, at the age of one, and hearing all these sirens.

My earliest memory was sitting in a car seat and riding with my parents in the middle of a blizzard to the animal shelter because my parents wanted me to have a pet. We wound up adopting a black and white male cat whom I named Sugar. I was about 2 or 3 at the time.

Waking up one morning and realising that I didn't remember any of the events of the day before. I was almost 4.

I was strapped onto the back of one of those children's seats that goes on the back of a bicycle and my mother was pedaling uphill on a country road wearing yellow shorts and the bike was really swaying side to side. I looked down at the gravel and thought it would be bad if we fell. I thought I was a toddler in this memory but my mother was shocked when I told her about it and said we moved from that place when I was 5 months old.

Not sure if it is my earliest memory or not, and I don't know how young I was (I was pretty sure I was walking already). But I think my earliest memory is running around someone's house (ours, I think), and I ran past a great grandparent or someone, and they gave me one of those big plastic candy canes full of candies.

I think it was our house and I climbed up on the organ bench and started playing the organ some time afterwards, but that might've been a seperate memory.

I was three when we moved out of that house, so it was some time before that...I have a lot of memories of that place.
