My First Memory
In honor of #tbt, I thought I’d share a picture that corresponds with my first memory.
Or what I think is my first memory anyway. Everything I’ve read about retaining memories before age 3 leads me to believe it is very unlikely I actually remember this, and yet I’m convinced. My Mom told me she has a memory from around 1.5 years old, so maybe it runs in the family.
It was my first birthday. I received a gift of a red raincoat with white hearts from some of my dad’s cousins.
My Mom put the coat on me and all of my relatives stood around me in a circle. (I was the only grandchild at the time.) They told me to model my coat, and I remember spinning around and everyone ooooing and awwwing and telling me how cute I looked.
Is it any surprise I retained that memory? People fawning over me telling me how great I am. Haha.
What is your earliest memory?
