EARLIEST MEMORY – 52 WEEKS OF PERSONAL GENEALOGY & HISTORY

I don’t really have very clear memories of my early childhood.  I have vague memories of playing with my sister and of seeing my grandparents but I don’t really know which memory was the earliest.

However, I do have a good family story from the first night that I was home after I was born.  Apparently my Great-Grandma Venna Thompson came to stay with my Dad and Mom to help take care of me for my first few days.  Mom put me to bed the first night I was home and then she and Dad went to bed. 

The next morning my Great-Grandma came in and woke up my Dad because she was worried that I was dead! Apparently, I hadn’t woken up during the night so she thought I was dead!! 

I, of course, wasn’t dead as I am here writing this blog post!  Who me?  I had just slept through the night!  I have always liked sleeping!

Week #37 – Earliest Memory

Week 37: Earliest Memory. What is your earliest memory?

This challenge runs from Saturday, September 10, 2011 through Friday, September 16, 2011.

52 Weeks of Personal Genealogy & History by Amy Coffin is a series of weekly blogging prompts (one for each week of 2011) that invite genealogists and others to record memories and insights about their own lives for future descendants. You do not have to be a blogger to participate. If you do not have a genealogy blog, write down your memories on your computer, or simply record them on paper and keep them with your files.
