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.


Nightstand Graffiti

The other night I was laying in bed reading and glanced over at my nightstand. I had a head jerk, double take as this shocking little piece of graffiti met my eyes.

I admit it is a bit embarrassing. I have no idea why my children have chosen to use my nightstand as an art palette. It started with a little scribble. And before I knew it looked over to this....
At first glance, I thought, has Brent drawn some kinky little picture for me? But no. This was Ellery's work. And I do believe those are intended to be "puffy sleeves."

I got quite a belly laugh out of this. I even called Brent on my cell phone to come have a look. (Wow, is that lazy or what? Admit...you've done it before.)

But on another note...I really need to do something about my bedroom furniture. This nightstand is courtesy of Great Grandma. I started sanding it down once and never finished. So it seems to have turned into a sponge for all things placed upon it.

I'm impressed with your reaction, I think most mothers would have been quite upset, but you took the time to see the pretty pictures. :) Love the puffy sleeves!! ha ha
