I suspect my dear daughter's left-handed coz she seems to have a preference to use her left hand more than the right. Currently she's 9 months old. My left-handed mother in law is very happy about it as if she's left her mark on my child. I'm super pissed by her behaviour and i'm getting depressed every time i think about how my little precious will be "just like her (my mother in law)". I've nothing against left-handedness and i'd love my daughter still if she is. It's just that coz i dont really like my mother in law, i really dont want to think of my mother in law every time i look at my left-handed daughter. I read that whether or not a child is right or left-handed will only be clear when she's 3 years old. I'm hoping against the odds that she's not left-handed. Anyone has a child who changed hand preference later?

Hmm... Iggy also has this tendency of using left hand to take stuffs!! I dont't really bother much about it now... Maybe later ...
snow bear, whether your dear daughter is lefthanded or not does not mean that she "got it" from your mother in law. & if she truly is lefthanded then this is something you will have to accept - that she has something "in common" with her grandmother.
i have learnt the hard way in the last few months that sometimes, accepting some things leaves us much more peace of mind & heart rather than to constantly battle the demons in our head. at the end of the day it's all just petty nonsense. so if we banish this pettiness, we'll be so much happier.
if your mother in law keeps bragging that your dear daughter got her leftieness from her, you can always just respond, "well that's just her hand. she got my face which everyone will keep looking at!"
i personally prefer my son to write with his right hand as the english language is designed to be written from left to right. my students who are lefthanded have terrible handwriting and it's hard to make out what they are writing, resulting in alot of 'innocent' marks lost.
