Melissa, 'The Imp' Charles spends her days bouncing like a demented pinball from homeschooling the five Minions at home, Wife-ing to Wolf, and being an all around one armed wonder. She hails from the frozen North, aka Canada. When not ricocheting from one crisis to another, you can find her blogging at Not A Stepford Life http://notastepfordlife.com
