    bless the teachers-funny

    Whether you have experienced this as a teacher or not you'll get a kick out of this!

    Winter Boots
    (Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this)
    Did you hear about the teacher who was helping one of her
    pupils put on his 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.

    By the time they got the second boot 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.

    Unfortunately, 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 correct 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.

    Once again, she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet.


    No sooner had they got the boots off when he said, 'They're my brother's boots. But my Mom made me wear 'em today.'

    Now she didn't know if she should laugh or cry.

    But she mustered up what grace and courage she had left to wrestle the boots BACK onto 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.'

    She'll be eligible for parole in three years.
    You never stand taller than when you stoop to help a child.

    Oh yea! As a retired teacher/mother I can completely relate! I used to hate the stuck zippers. Then I would have to call for the janitor and he'd bring a pliers to zip the coat!

    As a former teacher, I can truly see that happening--I think they should move her parole hearing up!

    Where do we send the choco-chip cookies ? This was my daily cure after the last kid was picked up--I really should have bought stock in the Hershey Company.

    Boy do I relate. I worked for Head Start for many years and every day rain or shine (unless a weather advisory) we took those precious little outside. Believe it or not some of my fondest memories.
    Create something beautiful from scraps.
