Cowboy Boots

My aunt emailed me this little story and I had to share it on here

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 & she could see why.

Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little boots didn’t want to go on. Finally, when the 2nd 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 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. And, once again she struggled to help him pull the ill-fitting boots off his little feet.

No sooner had 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 again.

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

He said, “I stuffed ‘em into the toes of my boots.”

Her trial starts next month……..

Noah's 7th Birthday!

Happy Birthday Noah!
Yesterday was Noah's 7th Birthday. He had a great day, I think.
He loved having cupcakes at school. He's such a sweetheart (when he wants to be) and our family is so much better with him in it!Here's the cake we had at home. It says, "We're all wrapped up in you, Noah! Happy Birthday
He asked for one vampire cupcake, so I made 6 vampires. He didn't seem all that impressed by them, though.
He seemed happy with all his presents. That's always nice. The guitar is going to make me nuts, though. Blowing out his candles . . . making a wish! This is a blurry picture, but here's the inside of his cake.
Happy Birthday, Buddy! We love you!
