I've never even thought about A.J. being left-handed as a big deal until the other day. She writes in a journal at school in a spiral and has been taking washclothes from home because the spiral hurts her hand. Being a right-handed parent to a left-handed child may not sound like a big deal until they are learning to write and you can help them. She transposes letters all the time. Not because shes young or dyslexic but because she is writing the letters right to left instead of left to right. I found some left-handed spirals online but they are like $5 for one. Usually you can get them 10 for $1 at Target. I tried to have her write from the back but the holes are on the wrong side and the cover os on the back. I'm think of trying to sew her a notebook for christmas as a left-handed one. Im wondering if she will notice. We'll have to see if any other problems come up.
