#WDYS — Pick Your Battles

“The last time you and your son had this conversation, you totally bungled it, creating an almost unrepairable fissure between the two of you,” my wife chided me.

“I’m sorry, but I’ve reached my upper limit with that kid,” I said. “I have been very patient in my efforts at matching his needs and ours, but nothing seems to get through to him. I’m at my wits’ end.”

“Honey, you need to pick your battles,” my wife said. “He’s still a kid and you and he need to come to an understanding. One day he will learn how to share and won’t eat all of the doughnuts and not leave any for you.”

    I would be very upset if my kid would’ve eaten all the donuts and not shared. Great use of all the prompts Fandango and thanks for joining in
