  2. What is the earliest memory you have?
    That’s difficult, is it memory or parents’ stories? I only have memories from the age of five or six. My sister is only one year older than me. I remember that the aunts always wanted to supervise my sweet sister. She had (she still has) such big brown eyes and long blond curls. I had more of a struwwel head. My mother said I had seven vertebrae on my head, you can’t do a sensible hairstyle. Today I have long straight hair and my aunts like to come to visit me.
    (I am from Germany, Bavaria)

  3. My daily post today is not on topic (because I already had a thread going on before Bloganuary was even a twinkle in my eye) but my earliest memory- and it’s just a whisper of a memory because I was just 2, is a flash of instruction to follow my aunt (just 5 years older than me) to be a little Angel in a Christmas pageant. I don’t remember the event of it, just my grandmother’s instruction.

    And wholly unrelated- todays actual post. http://aka-gringita.com/2023/01/03/december-15-at-sea/

  9. My childhood in the former Yugoslavia was very complex. Time before school was full of adventure, playing games, sledding down the main village road, through the hills, visiting the village river and bathing in the pools we built out of stone. I have been to the Adriatic Sea and the sea coasts of Turkey, to Lake Ohrid, to mountain tourist-recreational centers such as Kodra e Diellit in Macedonia. The time during education has been very busy. I read a lot and am among the most talented in school, participating in competitions in mathematics, physics, geography and basketball. I remember my grandfather who often read books and magazines. History was his favorite subject. Grandpa had a busy past. He had been a partisan in World War II. Going to the Trieste War which was abstained-revoked by the president of Yugoslavia Tito, my grandfather is injured in a fire accident. During the fire accident at the soldiers’ residence, he jumps from the upper floor and is injured. I remember that people were eager to hear my grandfather’s stories on various topics related to the history of the Ottoman Empire, health, advice on social life, culture, education and society in general.

  22. […] My earliest memory seems to have happened when I was 3 years old, but the more I think about it, I think that maybe I was older than that. It could also be I was 3, so I say that. My mother took my sister and me to the movies. We saw ‘Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs’, the animated version from 1937. I remember how scary the forest scene was when the hunter chased Snow White. I’ve seen that movie later on, and for a 3-year-old, it can be scary. I couldn’t watch any disgusting things after that. I can’t watch scary movies, and I look away if there are scary parts in movies. Because of that, I have never watched the music video ‘Thriller’ to the end. If you know what Freddie Kruger looks like, you know what I mean by disgusting. […]

  34. I was a sprinter. I ran the 100 meter dash; 200 meter and 4 x 100 meter races. This was my thing. When I was called upon, I was ready. It was a desire to achieve not for me but for the wider team’s goal. That’s one of the memories held dear throughout my childhood into adulthood where I participated in events well into my late 20’s.

    As I reflect, I am taken aback by the same habits that I used which has stuck with me even today. Read more https://successfulleaders.net/2023/01/03/7-character-traits-being-an-athlete-taught-me/

  42. What’s the Earliest Memory I Have?

    My earliest childhood memory? That would be the morning my younger sister (2) and I (3) took pity on my sleeping mother, left the house early in the morning, and walked a handful of blocks to Pulaski Park in Milwaukee. Mom was tired. Who wouldn’t be with two busy toddlers around the house? So, we didn’t wake her up and ask her silly questions like, “Can we go to the park?”
