A teacher was helping one of her kindergarten students put his boots 
on.  He asked for help and she could see why. With her pulling and him
pushing, the boots still didn't want to go on.

When the second boot was on, she had worked up a sweat. She almost
whimpered when the little boy said, "Teacher, they're on the wrong 

She looked and sure enough, they were. It wasn't any easier pulling the 
boots off then it was putting them on. She managed to keep her cool as

boots off.

He then said, "They're my brother's boots. My Mom made me wear them."
She didn't know if she should laugh or cry. She mustered up the grace 
to wrestle the boots on his feet again.

in the toes of my boots..."
