A woman was shocked when her daughter started demanding McDonald’s chicken nuggets for dinner after she’d been vegan her whole life. But when she confronted her ex about it, he accused her of being uptight despite the fact he had been secretly feeding their daughter meat.
She Was a Vegan
The woman said, ‘My ex and I were vegan.’
He Changed Her
The woman hadn’t always been vegan, but when she moved in with her then-partner, she felt she had to accommodate him. He didn’t like animal products in the house, so the woman made an effort to research veganism and the way food was produced. Fortunately for him, she changed her diet and became a vegan.
He Cheated on Her
While pregnant, the woman maintained her veganism and raised a healthy daughter on the same diet. But after years of being together, she found out her partner had been cheating. So, when their daughter was seven years old, they divorced.
They Successfully Co-Parented
Despite being an awful partner to the woman, her ex loved his daughter, and they managed to co-parent successfully. Fifteen months went by, and things were going fairly smoothly. That was until she allowed her daughter to stay at her ex’s house later than usual.
Her Daughter Was Starving
One day, her ex asked to keep his daughter late so that he could take her and his new girlfriend’s children to a matinee performance of ‘Frozen.’ When the woman arrived to pick up her daughter, it was dinner time, and the little girl was starving. Unfortunately, the woman had no snacks but an apple, which her daughter promptly rejected after spying the McDonald’s sign on their way home.
It Was a Full-Blown Meltdown
To the woman’s surprise, her daughter requested chicken nuggets despite being vegan all her life. She said no, stating that food awaited her at home, and the child had a complete meltdown. She wanted the McDonald’s chicken nuggets, and nothing the woman said could change her mind.
She Wanted Meat
When they got home, the woman’s daughter was still angry, snot bubbles blowing from her nose. Despite having vegan chicken nuggets in the freezer, the woman heated up a bowl of leftover soup, and her daughter ate it while still maintaining her tantrum. She didn’t want to reward her angry behavior.
It Was a Nightmare
Her daughter said she hated her mother and was a terrible mum. She went on to say that her dad would’ve let her eat chicken nuggets and ended up falling asleep crying. The next day, the little girl woke up and asked if her mother hated her because she ate meat. The woman was shocked and said she could never hate her daughter. She reassured her that she was not angry at her for eating meat, but the girl shouldn’t have thrown a tantrum. Secretly, the woman was mad that her ex had been feeding their daughter meat without informing her. Later that day, the woman called him.
Her Ex Accused Her of Being Uptight
The woman said, ‘I called him after she went to bed, and he told me I was being uptight, and he didn’t tell me because he knew I’d overreact.’
Was She in the Wrong?
She couldn’t believe her ex’s response; he was the reason she had been vegan in the first place! Plus, he could’ve fed their daughter the vegan options at McDonald’s. The woman was okay with her daughter eating meat, but she wished her ex had informed her. Frustrated, she asked the Internet whether she was overreacting.
The Internet Responded
One person said, ‘It’s not okay to shut down communication just because you’re worried that the other parent is going to be upset with you.’
Others Chimed in
Another commented, ‘Regardless of my opinion on forcing a child to have a vegan diet, it’s not okay for parents to not cooperate when parenting a child.’
