No Turning Back from Kindergarten!

Today, my darling daughter and I are taking one last vacation before school starts. She’s starting Kindergarten next week. I can’t believe she’s already five. I’ll blink, and she’ll be eighteen/ I feel like when my boys went to Kindergarten, I wasn’t as much as a slobbery mess as I am with Hailey. Maybe it’s because she’s my baby, and it signifies that I have no more babies at home. Maybe I’m just becoming a huge softy in my old age. Whatever it is, I’m so emotional. I know she’ll do fine. She’s outgoing and sweet and a hard worker (when she’s not in her imaginary world–I wonder who she gets that from?). I think her mommy is going to have more trouble with her leaving the nest than she is!

How did you feel when your birdies went to Kindergarten or left the nest?

Before I leave you, I wanted to let you all know that my first book, No Turning Backis available for the next two weeks at for kindle at Amazon and for the nook at Barnes & Noble* for only $1.99.

No Turning Back is my first novel and is in the women’s fiction genre. It’s a unrequited love story with a little twist! I self-published it back in January. Here’s the blurb:

Kaia Hart seems to have it all: a job as a successful architect, two perfect children, and a handsome husband, Patrick, but she’s haunted by an accident in her past. On a business call, one day, she’s surprised to find Asher, her once-love, has moved to town and will be working with her. In “No Turning Back,” Kaia faces nightmares from her past and big decisions about her future, as the two worlds seem to collide. Will Kaia give up everything for Asher, or will she find comfort in the arms of Patrick?


*B&N is currently showing the $3.99 price, but it should be updated shortly.

My youngest is taking a test to try to get into the magnet school for Kindergarten today. I can’t even believe she will be going to Kindergarten next year. All my kids went to daycare from the time they were 18 months. I never cried when my boys started Kindergarten. But, I can already tell I’m going to cry when she starts next year. She is such a Momma’s girl, and she’s supposed to still be a baby. Hold your babies. They don’t stay babies for long!
