A place to submit your First Memories.
I was chased by a dog, and hurt pretty badly. For years I thought it was only a dream, because I didn't see scars or remember my recovery. I asked my parents recently, and was shocked to hear that it actually happened.
I have proof that I have been an introvert all my life. It was my first birthday party and I was so excited. My mom bought these tiny cat stuffed animals as party favors and there was balloons everywhere. Eventually all the guests get there and keep coming up to me and wishing me a happy birthday and talking to me as you usually talk to babies. What I did? I screamed and cried and my mom picked me up and told everyone to give me some space. I kept crying. Some time later it's time for cake and I literally just stare at it with a blank face until I decide to cry again. It is probably the weirdest memory I have.
I remember standing in the doorway to my living room. Then I started walking around the room with a blank expression on my face, absolutely clueless. My parents probably looked at me weirdly, little did they know I had just realized that I existed and that was my first memory.
Stood on the toilet seat with my arms crossed on top of the cabinet (we have a cabinet next to the toilet) And leaning on them. I was talking to a spider whom I named charlotte ( like every other spider I found ) because I was obsessed with charlottes web.
