About this blog

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. She created Little Lake County, to help parents find out what's going on and where to go, but she still can't find the Peanut Butter at her super-sized Target.
