I am very very very curious....
I'm moving up to NC to have joint custody (every other two weeks, I'll have my daughter)
My ex, who happens to be the father of my daughter, is probably a well meaning person. Good person, and whatnot. He's an omnivore, which is fine.
I recognize that he finds it easy to take my daughter to fast food. Her "favorite" is Chik-fil-a. which, ya know...I told him...i won't be taking her there, cuz I don't eat meat.
(he took me and Vivian once to a chik-fil-a, and I got a salad and the raspberry vingiarette, not that I can spell).
So...to offer to make her a cinnabon (homemade, vegan of course..lol) for breakfast every once in a while, or makeup dinner and invite them both over...ya know, a nice vegan meal so that she isn't forced to rely upon chik-fil-a [email protected]
on those days.
I am curious to know if we are civilized, which we are, is that considered treading on territory? I could even make marinara sauce with TVP and he wouldn't know probably (dunno if that's vegan, but is much closer, and he wouldn't question the lack of "meat")...
Can it be seen as insulting? I want my daughter to not run into health/weight/heart/etc problems down the road, particularly the probs associated with fast food. Even if they are eating meat at home (not my home..lol), it's gotta be healthier than the fast food nonsense.
I'd like her to have not ever known what fast food was, and a year or so ago, she didn't! This whole nonsense of fast food, yes, it's faster, but I wish I could offer an alternative to that lifestyle.
He told his home study person that he was trying to lose weight himself, but how is he doing that if they go to a fast food joint when time is of the essence.
blahhhhhhh and arrrrrrhggghhhhh
I don't want to insult anyone here, and it's not omnivore lifestyle, but the fast food lifestyle that I severely never wanted my daughter a part of, ever/at all (even since waaaayyyyyy before I was vegan..ie-before she was born, even).
Or, can I just tell him flat out I don't want her eating at fast food places, and if they need food and he doesn't want to cook, they are more than welcome to come by my place for dinner..?
Thank you, everyone who's so much more knowledgable than me at the touchy subjects such as these...LOL
I adore you all ^_^
