Gobstoppers & Choking ~ Chili's GIVEAWAY Closes Tongiht!

My daughter is studying for a CPR class this Saturday.

I laughed as I thought back to when I was a girl babysitting my little sister.

She was about two or three at the time and we both loved candy.

Gobstoppers were my favorite. I got the most for my  money because they were ~ well ~ everlasting!

My little sister wanted one and with no thought I handed one to her.

She popped it in her mouth and it went straight down her throat.

Being only 11 or 12 at the time I had no idea what to do. She was not breathing.

I did what seemed logical to my prepubescent mind.

I grabbed her by her ankles, flipped her upside down, and started shaking her like I was emptying out the trash.

I shook, and shook, and shook that poor girl until that gobstopper came up ~ along with everything in her stomach. I won't bore you with the details of those contents.

All was well.

{and no, she doesn't suffer from shaken toddler}

I'm glad Bo will know how to properly handle a choking situation while babysitting. 

I'm not sure how all the mothers will take it if my daughter is shaking their kids like a sack of trash.

Some skills just don't need to be passed on to my children.


There are four easy ways to enter! Get in before it closes at 6:00 pm this evening!
