    O - Right
    J - Right
    Cr - Left
    Co - Left (writes and eats with left, throw a ball w/right)
    E- ?? Not sure yet looking like the left though

    Would you want to change what hand you write with?
    No. Why? I think it is something that you are born with and you shouldn't try to change it just learn to adapt.

    What are your children's dominent hand? Both Right

    Would you want to change what hand you write with?
    If I was "born" right handed, I think school would have been easier (see my story on this post for the reason)

    My husband always said "If we have a son, we'll tie his right arm behind him and have a left handed pitcher!" I guess lefties in baseball are golden? Anyway, he was joking

    What are your children's dominent hand? Both Right. DH's dad was left handed, so I really thought at least one of them would be, too.

    Would you want to change what hand you write with? Yes. Not so much now, since I've learned how to do things. It was hard growing up, though, trying to figure out which hand to do things with -- cut, throw, bat, bowl, etc. And I hate dragging my hand through ink when I'm writing.

    What is your SO dominent hand? Left, at least for writing and eating. He clamis to be right handed because he swings a bat and racquet with his right hand though.

    What are your children's dominent hand? All right, most of the time. DS often starts out as a leftie with his tennis racquet and DD2 uses both hands for batting and swinging her raquet. They do amazingly well with both hands but all their coaches have them work with their rights hands mostly.

    Would you want to change what hand you write with? No way.
