I am FINISHED...with these!

For those of you who are not schooled in the ways of little girls and their princess gear, this is a very tiny princess polly pocket shoe. I have despised these tiny little shoes ever since Brooklyn recieved her first princess polly pocket. (thankyou Omaha Grandma). Anyways, I really don't like them because they are teeny tiny and they are really hard for little fingers to put on. So, Brooklyn is constantly asking me to put on the shoes and then gets really mad when they fall off and get lost, which happens seconds after the shoes are put on. One might ask why I didn't throw the shoes away a long time ago, well, I should have. Tonight Tyson and I were eating dinner when we heard Brookln crying in her room with the door shut. Tyson went to see what was wrong. She was sitting on her bed crying, saying, shoe..stuck..nose. Yes, she jammed a little shoe up her nose. It was very trumatic. We went and got the tweezers, but she is surpisingly strong for a little two year old. The shoe was way up there, you could barely see it at the right angle. So after about 15 minutes of Tyson trying to get it out and me using the booger sucker thingy, we called her pediatricians office, and luckily, there was someone still there. It took one doctor, one large long skinny pair of tweezers, some metal instrument to help spread open her tiny little nostril, one nurse to hold her head, one daddy to hold her body, and one mommy to hold her arms, to pull out the teeny little princess shoe. If any of you have ever heard Brooklyn scream, and most of you have, she sounds like a little cougar. And that's what it was in the doctors office, except this was more like a rabid cougar. Once the shoe was out she was fine. She told the doctor thankyou and even told me thankyou as we were pulling out of the parking lot. I said thankyou for taking you to the doctor? She said yes. So just a warning to all you mothers out there with those dang polly pocket shoes, they are too small to choke on, but not to small to get stuck in some other tiny little hole.


Just showing off the spot where the shoe was stuck.

Cinderella's tiny glass slippers are going in the trash...I am so sorry for an awful night of pediatricians & cougar screams!)

Oh my gosh! haha...ok not funny, but kind of. What an ordeal...I'm really glad they could get it out though.

Oh, poor little Brooklyn! Yeah, I hate these shoes too. I slowly threw ours away too - Hallie just thinks she lost them. But, I was very concerned about Audrey swallowing them - never even considered it could end up in one of their noses - OUCH! Someday it will be hilarious to talk about.

I laughed so much, not sure if I was supposed to laugh but I did. I can't believe she did that. I am pretty sure I would not be laughing if that was Kooper.

hilarious. I remember getting in trouble when I was little, because I had a beaded necklace that broke, and my sister stuck one of the beads up her nose. They had to take her to the ER, to get it out.
I was grounded forever!
so much scarier when it's your kid I'm sure.

that is hilarious! for me anyways. probably wasn't for you. sounds like something Brynlee would do. I am glad she doesn't have any of those. I HATE small toys! anyways, I am glad to hear the tiny shoe came out!

This is one of those stories that will continue to be told even when Brooklyn is an adult! So sad but very funny.
K- so I got your package today!!!! I love the boy clothes and blanket!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you. You know you have such cute taste! Thanks to Libby too! I love having a boy and getting boy stuff!
Love you,
Amy

Oh man! That hurts just thinking about it! I was laughing about it and then realized how scary that must have been. My girlfriend's kid stuck a lego up his nose recently.....there must be some sort of appeal about shoving something up your nose?! Glad you survived :)

Oh MAN, Jennie! I was laughing through the whole thing! I still love those darn polly pockets, but I can see how they can be quite troublesome! Hahahaha!

Oh boy- I haven't ventured to the polly pocket phase yet. Maybe I will bypass it all together!
