    My first memory is standing outside of my house and watching my dad go to work one day.

    I'm not sure but I think maybe it's bathing my new baby brother (supervised by Mum) in a plastic basin on the living room floor. Mostly just holding him, supporting his head whilst squeezing a big sponge, so that the water from the sponge dribbled onto his belly. All the while he was kicking his legs and splashing about. I'd have been nearly 5.

    Seemingly part of this same memory is a neighbour visiting and gifting me a two tone grey rotary dial phone to play with. I liked using the rotary to dial; in particular dialling the number 0 which made the longest sound whilst it returned to the starting position. Bizarre, but there you have it. :o)
    (Tho the wrong colour the sound in this clip is the closest I could find to what I recall, dialling begins about half way through the clip.) LEGO bricks weren't in my life yet, that wasn't until around age 8.

    @catwrangler Thanks for this question, my Mum told me something about my 1st Christmas today that I didn't know about and a few other stories besides. :o)

    Playing with blocks and my truck on the front porch and it was cold. 

    Did I make the cut?

    My parents took a trip to Arkansas when I was 4.  I remember sitting in the bed in the hotel room reading Richie Rich comics with my brother(who was 3 at the time).

    Woah, I have no ide... EARLIEST memory :o

    I do remember when I was 4 I finally decided to hit back at a bully, I slammed him into the wall pretty hard and of course I got the blame for the whole thing. Then again I'm still quite proud of that moment, but I'm trying to not pass that idea on to my daughter ;-)

    Now that the count is in, I can respond to this with a similar experience. While on a weekend break in Bashley Park (a static caravan park complex near Christchurch), some kid twice my size ran in to me on his bike and laughed as I picked myself up. Later that evening he was walking by the outdoor pool fully clothed, to get to the arcade all the kids hung out in while the adults were drinking in the bar, so I seized my opportunity to push him in. He got out, sopping wet and told his dad, who then had a go at my dad for his "out of control" kid.

    Of course I got in a lot of trouble for that as I hadn't mentioned the earlier incident to my parents to justify it as retaliation.

    I love the dramatic spacing.

    It was even more dramatic until I edited it! Happens every time I post from Text Edit into a field here or in email, but yes, it does rather give the effect of dramatic pauses!

    I'm really struck by how many of people's first memories involved hurting themselves/others! 

    (Edit: Apparently nobody's first memory of pain involved stepping on a Lego brick, but that might be more a parenting memory...)
  • SumoLegoSumoLego Member Posts: 15,242
    Presumably, responsible parent/parents would not have Lego strewn about as it is a choking hazard.

    Early childhood trauma is always memorable!
