Being a lefty, I've hoped that one of my kiddos would be left handed too. Why, I have no idea. Even though I can't write with a pencil without having lead smeared all over my hand, I still like being a lefty. Ryann teased me a bit when she was younger, being a little ambidextrous, but she switched to being definitely right handed. Elsie however, is showing a very strong preference for her left hand. My fingers are crossed that she sticks with it!
