Melissa is mom to 4 kids and 2 angels. She once lived in heels and dreamed of traveling the world, now she lives in her minivan and dreams of a clean kitchen. She chronicles the sticky bits of motherhood at Peanut Butter in my Hair. She left the city for the suburbs and frequently finds herself lost.
