  • Hard to tell. I think my daughter is both because she always uses both. I havent paid much attention to what my son is. My hubby is a lefty and I'm a righty

  • I have 2 righties and a lefty. The lefty will try things with his right hand, not do them as well as with his left and then switch to the correct hand. DH and I are both righties, who do things reasonably well with our left.

  • My oldest 2 are right handed, and my youngest looks like he is going to be right handed as well.

  • Oldest is a lefty, 2nd is righty, 3rd will likely be a righty, and youngest is still not showing positive signs either way. His preschool teacher says he uses both yet.
