I was trying to think my earliest memory. I think I was 4 or 5, and I was living with my parents and my brother. The dining room of our house had this huge window, and it was very close to the driveway. I remember I made it a point to always wave goodbye to whomever was leaving. And then I remember one time I had turned my head, and I didn't see my mom leaving. So I missed waving goodbye. I got so upset. I mean, I was in hysterics. My dad couldn't figure out what happened to me. I don't remember how he calmed me down, but I remember how upset I was. Of course looking back on it as an adult, I feel so stupid. But hey, your priorities are different when you're 5.
