My grandmother was bathing me. I'm told the last time these details would be true was at 6.5 months old.

Watching my dad shave and thinking that everyone I knew and I were dead but didn't know it except for me. Have no idea when it was but it was before preschool since I remember quite a few things from then.

Also, I remember walking into my grandfather's and grandmother's room and seeing my grandfather lying on his stomach thinking he was dead but according to my parents, he died before I was born.

Thanks.

It's probably best all that you remember is the lobby....

Most people don't remember things that early (6.5 months) so you must have a really good memory.

Not so much. I can't remember ANYTHING esle until at least 4.

I just remember my grandmother bathing me in the kitchen sink. And crying, cause I wanted my mom. I've described the scene to my parents and my grandmother, who all confirm it must have been around the 6-7 month mark....

I was just thinking about this recently. When I try to remember it makes my brain hurt.

The earliest I can think of was when I cut my little sister's hair. And I remember cause we have photos they took of us in pre-school. I also remember when they took those photos.

My next door neighbor brought over a cupcake with a candle in it for my birthday. I was four. I probably remember some things earlier than that, but that's a pretty strong memory.

Sitting in my high chair as my sister tried to topple it over. I was probably about 18 months old.

Earliest I can go back is 3-5. I've never tried to pin it down, but it'd take famlily corroboration. Questions like

"Hey, Dennis (my brother, he's 5 years older) when did you get that battleship foam thinking with the wire-controlled helicopter on it?"

Dennis: "You mean the one you broke on the second day I had it?"

Me: "um, yeah, that one....."

There's probably gifts that I remember...opening my Fisher Price Castle on Christmas, and liking the little chair with desk almost as much...that don't involve me breaking something of my brothers, but not as many. Like the time I broke his rubber band balsa wood plane. I tried to jump over it, but apparantly I used to be pretty clumsy.

I can remember other things from about that time, like getting thrown off the ladder to the bunk bed by the mean kid across the street. He's the same kid that made me (he was older, so of course he could make me...I was 3 or 4, remember?) stuff leaves down my pants.

Maybe there's a reason I don't recall much. I also remember the time I kept walking in front of my dad and messing up his Grand Canyon pictures. His shots would alternate between the top of my head and his thumb. If he was really lucky, he'd get both.

I remembered an earlier memory from when I was 2.5 to 3. I asked my sister about a guy that used to scare me and she said he lived by my babysitter. She also said he was a total asshole and tried to scare all my siblings but I was the only one that got scared.
