The Parenting Formula



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!!!! ”
