The Parenting Formula

image

 

Trying to buy
a pair of pants for myself

+

A tired child
who wouldn’t stop whining

+

Being exhausted
from a hard day at work

+

Having no patience
to reason with whining kid

=

Leaving the store
With an outfit for my kid instead.
Wondering if said kid
would remember this event in future
when she whines,
“I never get what I want!!!! ”
