I have baby hands. All of my friends’ hands are larger than mine. In fact, my 11-year-old granddaughter’s hands are larger than mine.

When I was in first grade, I took piano lessons. It was hard to stretch my fingers to reach the keys.

After a year, I called it quits. Baby hands won out!!

However, I found that these baby hands could swing a bat, and handle a football while I was in elementary school! On the field, they called me Dynamite Donna, because I could hit a homerun and the boys; in fifth grader let me play flag football with then at recess because I could run and catch the ball!!
