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.
I'm guessing many mothers out there would agree that making dinner can be the toughest time of the day. It usually rolls around from about 3:30 - 5:00 pm. This is just the time mom and kids are worn down. Yesterday, Berkeley was having an especially cranky time so I sat her on the counter next to me. Several minutes past and I thought, huh, she is really quiet. I look over to see this....
Apparently she located the bread bag and was tickled pink with the results. It gave me a full 20 minutes of uninterrupted prep time
