Plinky – What’s your earliest memory?
My earliest memory – I think – is of my mom reading me a book before I slept. It seems to me that’s the earliest I have. My sister wasn’t born yet, so that’s before I was 5. I remember being in bed and SO happy she agreed to read me a story! She was sitting at a stool from the kitchen (look how much work I gave her, to bring that from the other side of the apartment!) and not very pleased to be reading to me. It didn’t matter, though. I was freaking happy. And, of course, it probably just took her a minute before I fell asleep. So people – when your kid asks you to read something for him or her, just do it. That’s a lovely memory. 🙂
