t h e m a y f i l e s is foremost a family blog, chronicling everyday life. Life including natural, healthy eating (with recipes thrown in at random), home educating (with ideas popping up sporadically), an attempt to homestead on .2 acres (with very meager yields), raising 3 of 4 children with a rare genetic disorder, and lots of highly personal family triumphs and failures. You may also find an eclectic array of musings on politics, exercise, sewing, emergency preparedness, backyard chickens, and religion. This blog isn't a campaign to glorify anyone or anything. Just simply a record.


Cool Mom Picks

We were so excited to see what Cool Mom Picks had to say about Cap Trappers. I love their website, they always have the best products, I was definitely honored to be a part. Here's what they had to say:

Missing Marker Tops, No Longer the Bane of My Existence

Whoever invented magic markers was not a parent. While it's bad enough that crayons end up in teeny little shards all over our floor, at least there are no caps to lose - and then find again. In the baby's mouth. As I race towards her yelling, Choking hazard! Choking hazard!

But Cap Trappers? Definitely made by a parent. A smart one named Rebecca Davidson.

Her invention basically a strip of rubber that can sit flush on a table or hang from a wall or easel. On it are four cap-shaped cylinders that can hold nearly any sized pen or marker, and they come in lots of pretty colors including my daughter's favorite: Sparkly.

At $5.99 for a set of two on Amazon) it's way cheaper than buying new markers all the time, way kinder to the environment, and way kinder to mommy's back since I no longer have to spend my life under the couch fishing out marker tops. -Liz
