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.
Daddy Daughter Exchange
I overheard this little conversation between Brent and Ellery in the bathroom.
Ellery: Dad I wish I was a man.
Brent: Why is that Ellery.
Ellery: I want to have whiskers.
Brent: Why do you want whiskers?
Ellery: I want to use that shaving thing (electric razor).
Brent: When you get big you can shave your legs. Mom's shave their legs but little girls don't need to.
Ellery: I hope I have whiskers when I get big Dad.
If she ever does end up with whiskers, Heaven forbid, she will be cursing the day she had this exchange :)
