Subject: dressing a child

Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one !!!!

Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her

kindergarten students put on his cowboy boots?

He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and

him pushing, the little boots still didn't want to go on.

Finally, when the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat.

She almost cried when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the

wrong feet."

She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling

the boots off than it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool

as together they worked to get the boots back on, this time on the right


He then announced, "These aren't my boots."

She bit her tongue rather than get right in his face and scream "Why

didn't you say so?" like she wanted to. And, once again, she struggled to

help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet.

No sooner they got the boots off and he said, "They're my brother's

boots. My Mom made me wear 'em."

Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry. But, she mustered up

the grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots on his feet


Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your mittens?"

He said, "I stuffed 'em in the toes of my boots."

Her trial starts next month
