I'm Erin Jo. I'm thinking, writing, dreaming, mothering, loving, living, praising, BLESSED to be Fiona to my Shrek and Mommy to my four amazing kiddos.

Shrek is "like an onion with many layers" but has a heart of gold. He's my husband and my friend, and we just get better all the time.

Lily is my first baby and only girl. She's smart, funny, tall and kind. Keeping up with this girl is a challenge and a joy. She's terrific!

Max is one part ogre, two parts lover and all boy! Our little man has a temper but gives the best hugs of anyone I know!

Colby is as ornery as he looks. He flirts shamelessly, even with strangers. He's all mouth and curls and the loudest by far.

Luke is the baby of the family, but holds his own. He's happy and adorable. And he's a terrible sleeper. =)

The Cowboy in Me

I am indeed aware that I haven’t posted in nearly a week. It’s hot, my laptop is on the fritz, I’m busy, blah, blah, blah. Mostly, I’m feeling quiet. Actually, I think I’m making myself feel quiet so I don’t spout a whole bunch of negativity. It’s cyclical for me, these times of introspection. I […]

All Together Again

I’m happy to report that all the Roberts are together again.

This is where I belong; here, in these precious days, with my family […]

To the Moon and Back

Mother Up

I’ve been thinking about this a ton lately. I’ve been a mom for almost eight years. I’ve had four children in that time. I have been busy, tired, challenged, blessed. I once heard of a woman at Ohio University who choreographed a ballet based on the movements of motherhood. I often have that mental image […]

Winning

The other day I promised on July 1 I would do a mid-year review of my New Year’s resolution, to “Do What {I} Love.” Well, I then went AWOL and returned, forgetting my plan to give myself a mid-year grade. I remember now. And I give myself a B. I am doing what I love, […]

AWOL

Well, I have a ton of things I’d like to write about, and I promised myself I’d blog tonight. First, I went AWOL for a bit. Now that I’m ready to write, sadly, my laptop is AWOL. (I’m posting from Shrek’s unfamiliar machine.) I’ve also just finished a really wonderful novel, so I’m kind of […]
