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. =)

White Sugar, Brown Sugar

My two babies are such a joy. Such a workout, such a comedy act, such a well-matched boxing bout! They keep me busy, they keep me on my toes, they keep me in diaper debt. It’s a little strange how little they look like brothers, with one white as a sheet and the other with […]

Tough Times for Everyone

I was walking down the street in Athens yesterday to meet a friend for lunch, and I overheard part of a conversation. Two men, talking about ¬†how “these are tough times for everyone.” They sure are. I was reminded that we’re living in a very tough economy. Maybe the reasons why I’m not reaching certain […]

Superheroes and a WINNER!

Another super weekend is in the books, and I spent most of it with the superheroes above. My friend Kyla took this photo, as my camera was lost and my cell phone dead. Thanks Ky! She titled it Earth, Wind, Fire, Water! and I love it! Except I think Colby is fire, because that kid […]

Big Science and a GIVEAWAY!

Our family had quite the treat on Wednesday at COSI (Center of Science and Industry) in Columbus. I received a very kind note about six weeks ago about my blog with a special invitation to enjoy COSI’s Early Childhood Workshop and tons of other perks as part of a Mommy Blogger event. Well, YES! And […]

Moments We’ll Remember

Rainy days and Mondays always get me down. Not really, but wasn’t today a doozy? Both rainy and a Monday? I tell you what. My weekend life is so near perfect that I get down every Monday. Oh, but it won’t be long, because these weeks are flying by. Soon it will be Wednesday, when […]

Finding His Voice

Luke is on to us. He now knows all about getting his picture taken. Anytime we whip out a camera, real or fake, he freezes his expression into this cheesy little grin. This means two things: 1) Luke is very smart to have figured out the camera thing in light of the limited time he […]

New Beginning

Tonight, I write. I’ve missed blogging the last couple of nights. I’ve been celebrating birthdays–mine and this blog’s–and the anniversary of my journal-writing. So I’m 34. I’ve been keeping a journal for 22 years and blogging for two. Pretty amazing. Actually, maybe pretty amazing that I’ve done anything else. Oh, but I have. My actual […]
