What is your earliest childhood memory?

100 people answer the question, “Going back as far as you can go, what is your very earliest memory?” The ages associated with memories range from being a baby to 12 years old.

Some remember just flashes, while others have lots of details. These memories are parts of a story, like pieces of a puzzle. Colors come up, a yellow Rambler, for example. But none are mentioned more than purple. Moms and Dads. Bottles. Bikes. Grandparents. Houses. Fences. Yep. We seem to remember those too. There are toys and shoes and lots of other shared images that I’ll let you discover on your own.
