Well, it wasn't necessarily traumatic, but I do remember being a baby in my crib. I was able to describe it accurately to my parents years later, much to their surprise. I do have one traumatic memory from when I was about 2 or 3...I had a Raggedy Ann doll that I was totally inseperable from...one day, the family dog ate it. I still remember the sight of the shredded doll. Interestingly, my parents never seemed to connect that with the fact that, after this time, I developed a strong aversion to dolls of any sort( except Barbies, but I never played with them in the usual sense, I merely used them as mannequins for my budding sewing/fashion design skills), actually becoming furiously angry with other children for making their dolls talk and have personality, and scientifically dissecting any dolls given to me by well-meaning relatives. Now, oddly enough, as an adult I DO sleep with a rag doll that I made and find it has greatly reduced my troubles with insomnia and nightmares, so much so that I highly recommend it to anyone having trouble sleeping well...
