    I remember changing my brother's dirty nappy on my parent's bed. It was all cloth back then and I distinctively remember the colour of the washer I used- an awful orangey-brown colour. The safety pins used on the nappy had little yellow ducks on them. I would have been somewhere between 2 & 3 at the time.

    I remember that too! I think i was about 4, and i remember not knowing what i was meant to be excited about!

    I don't know the age but guessing around 4 as it would have been before I started school. I remember my dad buying me chewing gum hubba bubba and me getting all excited waiting for my siblings to come home from school so I could share it with them. We were poor so this was quite a treat.

    I would have been around 2 and remember my mum and dad were still together and she said not to touch the hot electric frying pan. I did. My mum and dad split when I was 2.

    I wish I could remember times before I turned two. My dad passed away when I was two and I can't remember anything about him. I envy my brothers who can often recall fun times spent with dad.

    My earliest memories are from about 3!

    Sadly they are not good memories at all.

    I remember the delivery of our transportable house at age 3.
    But most memories aside from that are only ones of the sexual abuse that I experienced at the hands of my grandfather.

    I have very limited good memories about my childhood. I think most memories have been blocked to protect myself.

    One good memory I have though is of my "pop off" (my mums dad) and him smoking his pipe and having a beer. I remember him whispering to me telling me, "don't tell granny"!

    I adored him!
    He died when I was 4 so it was before that.

    Fortunately I am very lucky with my childhood memories, although we migrated here when I was 2 1/2 I have no memory
    however, I do remember my 3rd birthday party. We were living in migrant centres as we had no family here or money to have our own house (mum & dad saved to buy our own home) we had a small party in our flat with friends we met in the centre, I had a pink birthday cake with sprinkles around it. I remember standing on a chair to blow out my candles and being to scared so mum helped me. That birthday I remember receiving a little pink and white trike with that bucket at the back, I LOVED it.
    I also remember shopping with mum and sitting in the trolley seat and asking for lollies (Kids never change lol) and being told no. So I sneakily threw a bag a smarties in the trolley, somehow they were bought..... I remember mum unpacking the shopping and discovering my treat. I was given a small little cup (I remember a small child ceramic cup with handle) and was delighted with my accomplishment. Both happened in the migrant centre but which happened first I don't know.

    My earliest memory was when I was three. We were walking along the road , my mum and I and my sister in a pram. My mum was crying. I later asked her why and she said she had missed the only bus that day , she was going to visit her mum. I remember feeling sad.
