Wow. You guys have awesome memories. Maybe it is because I am old (LOL) but I think one of my youngest vivid memories (complete with sound, conversations, etc.) is about two years old - when my parents got married.
Now, for "bits and pieces" memories...
I also remember sticking a bobby pin in to a socket when I was living with my grandmother. This was before my parents got married so it was prior to two years old but not sure exactly what age...
My favorite memory from my childhood is also a "bits and pieces" memory. It is of this music box my grandmother had that was dark red and had little while twinkling lights in it. I remember staring in to it and thinking it looked like a runway or space. I don't know how I knew that because my memory of it was when I was about 5 yet, I never visited an airport until about 8 and never flew myself until 13. And of course, I have never been in space (that I remember; LOL). What I do clearly remember is that I LOVED that music box and it would fascinate me for a long time.
Interestingly, My grandmother said that if I was "fussy" when I was a baby, she would put me in front of the music box and I would just stare at it forever even then.
Nice thread / question... made me happy just thinking back to these times. Thanks!
