Wellingtons ( thanks to my aunt for this one XX)

(Anyone who has ever dressed a child will love this one!)

Did you hear about the Pre-School teacher who was helping one of the children put on his wellie boot's?

He asked for help and she could see why. Even with her pulling and him pushing, the little wellies still didn't
want to go on. By the time they got the second wellie on, she had worked up a sweat.
She almost cried when the little boy said, "Miss, they're on the wrong feet."
She looked, and sure enough, they were.
It wasn't any easier pulling the wellies off than it was putting them on.
She managed to keep her cool as together they worked to get the wellies back on, this time on the right feet..
He then announced, "These aren't my wellies."
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 wellies off his little feet..No sooner had they got the wellies off when he said, "They're my brother's wellies, my mum made me wear them.’
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 wellies on his feet again.Helping him into his coat, she asked, "Now, where are your gloves?"
He said, "I stuffed 'them in the toes of my Wellie's".

She will be eligible for parole in three years!

You wouldn't believe how long it took me to get Little Guy out the door this morning. It has dipped to 20 Farenheit here (that's without the wind chill factor) so the kids have to be really wrapped up.
Out came the snow suit, which he said was too big (so what?). Then he didn't want to tuck the trousers into his boots, but if he didn't the boots rubbed against the side of his legs. Then we put the balaclava on and that was choking him. Then we found some mittens (which OK, used to belong to big sis) and we had an argument about whether they were pink or red.
I was sorely tempted to shove him out the door in his underwear!
