      Dang, that's pretty good. I can "see" little bits & pieces of things that happened probably when I was 3 or 4 but the most vivid earliest memory is kindergarten.

        I still remember playing with toys in the pediatrician's waiting room. But other than that I don't remember much. Sometimes I see pictures of me made last year or so and I honestly can't remember what I was doing then !!! You know, that shocks me.

        My grandfather seemed to remember more and more details about his childhood when he was around 85 years old, so there's hope it'll all come back some day.

          Remembering events that occured before appr. age three is unlikely.

          This is because the hippocampus, part of the limbic system, is not sufficiently developed until then. This is the part of the brain where such types of memory is created and stored.

          It is, however, possible to have "false memories".

            OK...so I'm an UNusual individual.... [Wink]

            In my mom's house are photos of my sis and myself that were taken at an Olan Mills studio. I distinctly remember going and having these pics taken. In them, my sis was 10 months old, I was 2 1/2 at the time.

            I also remember being put down for a nap in my crib. I was 3-4 before getting a 'day bed'. I also remember my mom putting 'hot sauce' on my finger to keep me from sucking on it. It didn't work...LOL I was still in my crib at this time.

              Yeah, I have lots of false memories- "memories" that have been formed from people telling stories about what it was like, and looking at pictures- your brain creates a "memory" based on what you've been told and accepts it as real.
              That being said, I have a flash, in black and white interestingly, of when I was really small being carried into my grandmother's house. I know a baby's eyes develop the more they are stimulated (i.e. outside the womb) but I question the validity of the memory because I doubt what I think I saw would have been as clear as it was, but black and white.
              Even when you are older false memories happen a lot, which is one of the arguements against the validity of eyewitness testimony.

              One thing I remember VERY clearly though: when I was three, and lying on the couch, I reached for a comb on the ground, fell off the couch and broke my collarbone. I was graceful even back then. I remember going to the hospital, getting a shot and fighting to stay awake afterwards.
              The clearest memories from when I was younger are the scary/painful things (like so called "flashbulb" memories), but my general sense of childhood is a good one.
              Don't take life too seriously- you'll never come out of it alive.

                    I'm not sure how old I was at the time (probably around 4?), but I remember me and my older brother, Joe sitting in the living on our rocking chairs. My parents had two little wooden rockers made just for us, and I remember being in my chair and watching Lassie. Used to love that show. That's a vivid memory that stands out. I don't remember a lot prior to that, but my mom has filled me in on a lot of things I did when I was little.

                    I have some memories of when I was in kindergarten, but most of the things I remember are from probably 8 and up.

                      I know I'm going to date myself here, but I vividly remember the day JFK was buried.
                      I was only 2 years old and my Mom and I along with my brother were sitting on the couch
                      watching the TV.

                      Mom was crying. Of course I had no real idea of what was going on, except that someone
                      very important to my folks had died. But I can still see the image as plain as day in my mind
                      even today.

                        I have a faint memory of standing in a crib and my mother handing me a botle and telling me to go to sleep. I remember being picked up as a baby and laughing at an aunts glasses.

                            I remember getting my picture taken when I was about a year old. I remember the photographer, who wore glasses and bouncing a red rubber ball to make me laugh. It is a very fuzzy memory, but despite what anyone says, I do remember it. I am known for my exceptional memory at work, and seem to remember every trivial event and fact.
