I was sitting on the balcony of our apartment with my mom. I must have been 3 or 4 years old approximately. A little girl my age came out on the balcony next to ours. She ate a large chocolate chip cookie, wave at me and went back inside.
My mom ask me to come inside as she needed to prepare supper. I asked her for a cookie and she refused because we were about to eat supper. I replied “but all mothers let there daughters eat cookies!”. She found it hilarious at the time, because I didn’t know any other mothers.
At that time all mothers consisted of our neighbor. That was pretty much the extend of my social world.
I don’t know why this memory stuck in my head all of my life.
What is your earliest memory?
