My earliest memory

Hackney Pirates

My earliest memory is of the day I punched my brother's leg. I was still a baby and I couldn't walk. The only word I could say was mum. It was 2006 and I had just moved house. I had been sleeping and afterwards I changed the TV channel to watch the children's channel. I went towards the black TV. My big brother tried carrying me back but I wanted to touch the screen. I punched his leg, and he told my mum but she replied, "He is just a young child, leave him alone." My mum called me from the brown sitting room to the kitchen that she was in. Then I had some milk. I wasn't angry.
