In elementary school, I remember thinking the left-handed students were so much more interesting than those of us who used our right hands.
So when my son showed tendencies of being left-handed, I thought that made him more interesting too.
But as my grandmother watched him grab a crayon in his chubby toddler hand, she shook her head and muttered “Oh, no. He’s left-handed.”
I told her he’d be fine.
And he is.
So is my daughter.
And I’ve thoroughly enjoyed having two left-handed children.
The coincidence and the link to my grandmother always makes me smile.
