My Earliest Memory

How far back can you remember?


I think that my earliest memory is from around 3-4 years old. It is a very strange memory, but it still counts!


I was “helping” my dad work on the go-kart he was building for my brother and me. He told me to go inside our trailer and get paper towels. While on my way inside, my mom was mowing the yard and asked if I wanted to ride with her. I said, “No I’m helping dad!” with my little girl attitude. I think I remember because I felt bad that I told my mom no in a rude way. There’s actually a song that is linked to this memory too, which may be part of it also. I can’t think of it off the top of my head, but when I hear it I know it. I’m also not sure why it is linked – maybe it was playing in the barn/shop we were in.

Now if I could just remember important things…
