Default The Boots......a good laugh

(Anyone who has ever dressed a child
​or been an early grade teacher, ​
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.

Ditter, I've missed you soooo much. I'm wishing you well, and selfishly hoping to hear (read) more from you. I THINK you've shared this with us at an earlier time, but I laughed again this time. I'm sooo happy to hear from you. Please continue these little funnies....they perk me up, and even more importantly, let me know you're still with us.
Stay well, Ditter....and THANK YOU for sharing!!!!!

Ditter, so great to see your name come up. Always love your funnies. As a retired Grade One teacher this funny brought tears of laughter to my eyes and brought back a lot of memories. Thank you!

I was just thinking about you last week and wondering where you were hiding. Thanks for the laugh.
