Hello Fayette Moms

Kiersten and Jillian

Hello all. My name is Colleen Schreiber and I am a happy Fayette transplant, a wife, a part-time writer, and a full-time mom to two beautiful girls, Jillian, 8, and Kiersten, 2. I admit I have an addiction to Facebook, want to say that I read things like “War and Peace” when really I am tearing through book 4 of the Sookie Stackhouse series, and sometimes frozen pizza and a bag of salad becomes dinner because I just don’t feel like cooking.

I wanted to start this blog because as I talk with my other mom friends we all admit that although we love and adore our children that mommying is not always the easiest job. Often as women we paste a smile on and go about our business never admitting that we are frustrated or overwhelmed. This is a place to share real feelings about the toughest job in the world. The good and the bad. The things that make us want to scream at the walls and the moments that reduce us to tears of laughter on the floor.

I always assumed that I would get married and have kids someday but I can honestly say that it was never my dream. When I was little I didn’t play with dolls and think about how I would be with my own babies one day. I waited until I was 31 to have my first child because I just wasn’t ready before then. They I waited 5 ½ years before the second because I didn’t know if I wanted another one. Being a mommy was never part of my being… until I had my kids.

I love, love, love my girls. I look forward to seeing them when I wake up. I miss them when they are at school. I love to snuggle with them on the sofa and read books or watch movies. They make me laugh harder than I have ever laughed and also make me more frustrated than I have ever been with another human being. This is a journey that has caused me to question my sanity and face my fears but it is so worth it.

I hope that you will come along with me on this fun mommy adventure and share your stories, trials, and fits of giggles with the other moms of Fayette County. As moms we need to stick together , withhold judging each other, and help each other get through the day and make it better than the one before.

About Colleen Schreiber
We relocated to Peachtree City 6 years ago for my husband's job and I immediately fell in love with the area and its people. I write in my spare time but spend most of my days being a full-time mom to two girls ages 9 and 3 and one very needy Bassett Hound.

  1. Thanks for your honesty Colleen and it takes courage to admit that being a mother wasn’t your first and foremost goal in life. I had my daughters at 22 and 24 but I’m so glad they are almost out of the nest so I can start doing all the things I put on hold to have them. Looking back, I’m glad I had them first because had I waited until to have them, I probably wouldn’t be a mother now. It’s a hard job with no days off but the rewards are endless. Good luck to you and God bless.
