Photographic evidence for Karen's thumb sucking and handedness experiment


Lauren has a Princess diary she's been writing in this summer. I figured it was a good way for her to practice writing without it seeming like an assignment. Of course, since Lindsay has to do everything Lauren does, she is "writing" in a book also.

Karen, Lindsay's handedness would appear not to support your theory. She always colors with her right hand, and yet she only sucks her left thumb. Alec is left handed, and I am right handed. Lauren is right handed.

lol...maybe she'll be both or switch? i'm a lefty but i shoot a basketball right handed and usually throw a softball righty :) i never seem to stop confusing people w/ a mouse though! lol...

Thanks for the data point! I'm weird-handed, like sister k - I write and use scissors right handed (sucked my right thumb) but do most other stuff lefty or in whichever hand is most convenient.

@sister k: Chris' mouse confuses people, too! Lars uses it righty, but knows to switch click fingers when he's at Daddy's desk. That kid will mold to the shape of whatever he finds...
