Inspired by a recent trip to Target

To all the moms I’ve judged before
Whose children ran around the store
I’m sorry for my glares
I know it wasn’t fair
To all the moms I’ve judged before

To all the moms whose kids ran wild
While I shopped peacefully without a child
I wish I could have known
I wish I would have shown
Some empathy and not gotten so riled

Oh the winds of change have blown my way
And now I think back on the day
When I could browse alone
And chat on my cell phone
Without displays and merchandise being thrown

To all the moms I’ve judged before
For whom the mall is such a chore
I now understand your pain
The things you do in vain
While trying to keep your children tame

To all the moms I’ve judged before
I know I wished you’d use the door
I dedicate this post
I raise my glass and toast
To all the moms I’ve judged before

Thank you Willie and Julio for the inspiration.
