Millicent ‘Millie’ Zito – Boss Baby
Don’t let that smile fool you; she is really the one in charge! When she isn’t banging on her desk and bossing everyone around, she is working hard at being promoted to ‘toddler.’ She has also set a household record of first family member awake, now going 42 days strong. Her contributions to SalonRoad.com are resounding; misspelled words, incorrect grammar or broken links are surely the result of her tireless effort to distract her ‘co-workers’ and eventually become a one-woman band. Lookout, though, she is sure to steal your heart..and your go-gurt.
