Peyton Price understands the psyche of the suburban mother. Once an ambitious go-getter with a respected career, Price veered off the fast track and into the carpool lane. Wanting what's best for two kids and a husband, Price finds it hard not to keep up with the Joneses--especially when they are living right next door. Yet, unlike other micro-managing mothers, Price does not unwind with a glass of wine, but with haiku.
True to form, every haiku is a 17-syllable catharsis--capturing the frustration and elation of daily suburban motherhood. Price's topics, or rather, targets, range from boring PTA meetings and kids' sports to the elusive spa day, and everything in between.
