What are your earliest childhood memories? How old were you at the time? Why do you think those memories are what stayed? How are those memories important to you?
My earliest memory is giving away my first dog. It was right after my brother was born so I had just turned two years old. I remember this boy with sandy hair and glasses coming to pick the dog up and just sitting at the door and crying because they took the dog away. I talked about it a couple of years ago and my mom confirmed what the boy looked like and was amazed that I could remember that! I think the memory stayed because it might have been the first time I lost something I loved.
