L is a lefty

L revealed her leftist leanings promptly before breaking her wrist. While tracing out our numbers today, she undeniably prefers and has better dexterity with her left hand. The left-handed grandma is very proud.

Then L decided to run into a wall. It happened out of nowhere; I like to think she was trying to stop herself but slipped. She was crying loudly enough that we knew something was wrong even after several minutes of ice. At extended care, she made me very proud by taking the x-ray all by herself without complaint. The PAs oohed at the tiny little ulna and radius, but there it was--an undeniable "buckle" break on the top of her left wrist.

Now she has a very small cast and a sling. She's especially frustrated by trying to draw the number 4.

Ouch. Poor girl. Hopefully the wrist is going to heal soon.

I also just remembered having my broken arm in a cast when I was a boy and wondered if it's still custom to paint it and have all your friends sign on it?

I hope she is doing well. Good thing kids heal quickly!

Don't forget the "lefty" scissors...

I hope she doesn't have to resort to being a righty. Of course, perhaps if she learns to be ambidexterous, the she could grow up to be a centrist?

I hope you don't mind, but I have tagged you.
