I have no memory of this...
I have been thinking a lot about memory and asking friends and family about their first or earliest memories and about how old they thought they were.
This came about while I was looking at the above photo of me at a zoo, and how some photos create a memory that we may not actually remember, but know second hand because of the photo.
Similarly- stories about us that we incorporate into our memories in the first person even though it is someone else's recollection.
So here is my earliest memory;
I must have been 3 or 4 I was in the kitchen of the first house we lived in, the sun was coming in through the window and I remember the brick pattern linoleum floor, we had a cat that was about to have kittens and my Dad was putting together a metal ride on fire truck that a grandparent gave my brother and I. He was having a hard time doing it and was really frustrated- that made me nervous.
Anyway if you care to I would love to hear some of your first memories and about how old you might have been...:)
