When we grow older our memory is not sharp anymore as what when we are still a child., it is already hard for us to memorize some phrases and remember somethings that we need. Sometimes we remember it after two days had passed or when we saw it again by the second chance. So as a challenge can you still remember the oldest memory you have? It might be when you are still a little child or baby., the oldest memory I remember is when I am just a three years old and was hitted by a running tricycle. I managed to escape from our house when my parents were busy,because there are a lot of people everyday in my grandparent's house,because there was a store before. All they know I am sleeping but I manage to hide and escaped, my mother won't allow me to play outside or accross the street but I am hard headed .I played with other kids when I heard they are looking for me, I hurriedly run at the road but did not cross yet, my grandpa is waiting for me accross, he ask the passing tricycle to stop but the moment I cross the street suddenly a tricycle behind them over take and after that all I remember was my mother hugging me with my grandma inside the tricyle crying and bleeding going to hospital. Maybe because it is so tragic that's why I can still remember it.,

Talking about memory, I really appreciate my memory and somehow I can even still remember the day when I was a little boy, well, we can say when I was a big baby. Everytime I think about that it takes me back to the time when I saw my aunt came towards me and wanted to give me a hug. I can't forget it. Well, I don't want to either. =) It is very difficult for me to forget even about something, especially when someone makes a mistake upon me. Even now I still remember all those mistakes and makes me little bit harder to forgive them.

hi.. my oldest memory I think was from a time that I was just a little over being a baby.. Probably just a yr old because I was still sleeping in a crib.. Anyways I remember seeing a very big spider right above my head. It landed on the mosquito netting above the crib. I remember seeing pretty much every detail below its stomach. I remember I cried so hard :).. up to now I have a fear of spiders

I used to play with my father in the front yard when I was a kid (between 4 to 10 years old). The oldest memory I had is when my head was hit by a metal plate when we two are playing (thats when I was almost 5 years old). I had a scar that reminds me of that until now.

as far as I can remember, the oldest memory that I had was when i climbed a fruit tree and feel down. i had this big scar in my left leg that served as my remebrance of that event. it was a bad fall and it made me sick for weeks. i was just thankfl that i hadn't break my leg. at least the scar is just superficial and my bones weren't damaged. that's what i am thnakful for as of now.

I also fell down the tree when I was ten years old, my back came first. I was afraid to tell it to my mother so I keep it secret and now sometimes I am worried when my back aches thinking that I feel down the tree when I was a child.

Hello there Ruby, I can't explain too why when we are a child we are afraid to be left alone. Afraid to be lost, I remember too when my father left me inside the ship, (we are going home to our province) I can't remember how old I am. He said he is just going to buy our food, I want to come with him but he said I have to look for our bags. Then later he change his mind, he would let me come with him but he is thinking who will look for our bags. Of course as a child I am also afraid to lost our bags so I decided to be left alone, (I just understand lately that my father tricked me). I was so scared that time, I went to the stairs peeping below the ship, because I alreay heard that the ship is going to leave soon. I almost cry at the stairs, yes I left our bags on our bed. Luckily he came before I burst in tears.

That's nice of you having a sharp memory. You became a teacher's pet huh? When I was in grade six I am always nervous especially if I am going to be the one to recite in front of all the elementary students, you know every flag ceremony.

Three years old, I think it was. That was when our family moved to a new place and I was playing in the grass being overwhelmed with joy catching butterflies and other insects.

My oldest memory would be when i was around three years old. My dad was in Saudi Arabia working and i hardly knew back then since he left to work overseas when i was just one. I remembered me and my mom would lie in bed and she would listen to mellow music and cry. She told she misses dad and started crying too. I felt what she felt and my heart was hurt when she burst into tears.

I do know it’s a little strange, but if I come back to think my oldest memory I think it would be my experience to be a guest in a relative house. In fact it’s my mother’s aunt. There’s nothing special, but I can remember every detail even after 30 years. One day I told my mother about it and she was so surprised. I even remembered the meal I had and the clothes I had at the day. The only reason that can explain it is at the time my family did not have many relatives around them. So when we had holiday or festival visiting relatives was a big issue in my life. Now I don’t want to visit relative any more, I prefer they come to visit me.

The oldest memory I have in mind is about the time when I was in first standard. I still remember my Mom combing my hair and helping me to get ready. I remembr some incidents in my class. I had no friends in my class for sometime. I felt lonely. Later, I became friends with some students. One girl who used to come with me in the school bus fought with me one day. I still remember my class teacher in 1st grade.

It seems you have a sweet mom, me too I don't have a lot of friends during elementary days. My classmates love bullying me, I have once cousin who is also my classmate, she would tell out other classmates not to talk with me. She will just talk with me if I have a lot of candies and food.

I have a very vague memory of my sister's first night with us. I would have just turned 3 at that time. I have snatches of other scenes from very early childhood, but this one is the earliest that I could peg down to an actual date.
