Teacher and Child


Teacher and Child

Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one! Did you hear about the Texas 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 them it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as together as they worked to get the boots back on--this time on the right feet.


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 do. And, once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitted boots off his little feet.


No sooner had they got the boots off than he said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mom made 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 again.


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.

LOL, I have read this one somewhere before. No matter, it still makes me laugh out loud.

So typical of a little kid.
