The Parenting Equation

Here's my Unified Field Theory of Parental Sanity:
S=(T/E) + M - W

S = Sanity
T = Time
E = Energy
M = Money
W = Work
Low results correspond to cluttered houses, hastily-prepared meals, and dark circles under parents' eyes, and various other signs of emotional breakdown. High-value results correspond to neat houses, home-cooked gourmet meals, well-organized and biddable children, and parents who are fit, happy, and energetic (who are completely horrible people, I'm just sure of it).
