Lady YOU Are AWESOME!!!, I was hopeless at math, but I trained my son (right-handed) while I had the chance with simple math tests, counting from an early age. In School they would give him extra work or move him up a class, he was Great.
The Biker NEVER did anything with our boys regarding school. Not even listening to them reading out loud. That was my “job.” I hope your son remembers those days spending time with you and passes that on when he has kids of his own.
I Fix Cars. (or I did.) lol
I grew up playing with wrenches & sockets before Barbie dolls. *LOL* When I met The Biker, I had bought my first car from my father…a 1971 Chevy long/wide pickup…I was taking the body molding off, filling holes, smoothing, Frenching in the antenna, and dressing her up…on my days off from my job. I was 19. :)

I’m right hand dominant…have always been jealous of my boys being ambidextrous. My oldest in Kindergarten used to crack his teacher up…coloring on two different parts of a page at the same time, inside the lines…she’d give him a steno pad and he’d start the sentence on the left side, get to the center line and finish the sentence with his right hand.
I was tested for right/left brain dominance years ago when they tested my IQ…I use my right brain 53% and my left brain 47%. I really enjoy math…that’s evident in my Pharmacy Tech classes & in High School I actually considered Accounting for a career because it was my best class (used to help the teacher grade because I stayed about 7 chapters ahead of my class and had nothing to do). Considered Law and Forensic Science, too. :)
But I’m extremely creative - painting (acrylics & watercolors), drawing (colored pencils, charcoal, pastels, COPIC markers), sewing (clothes & home decor), quilting, embroidery by hand, sculpting (I enjoy playing with paper clay), & writing. I also love playing with stamps, making cards, decopauge, refinishing/re-purposing furniture, & mixed media/altered art.
