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.


Dollar Signs in the Distance

Does this mean I should expect really expensive dental work?  Brent loves to tell me how he remembers two things.

1.  He knew if he sucked his thumb long enough the icky stuff his mom painted on it would go away and he wouldn't taste it any longer.

2.  One thumb was always bigger than the other.  Nice and pink and plump from sucking.

It is so sweet now, but I don't know about when she is 5!

There's just something so sweet about seeing a baby suck their thumb! None of my kids did and I was secretly sad. She's darling.
