Brandon Carpenter has a beautiful young daughter. And although he and the child’s mother have separated, that certainly does not affect his love for his daughter – and respect for his mother. He proved it in a way that makes people everywhere rejoice.
His ex asked if he could drop some medicine off for their daughter. But when Brandon arrived home, he discovered something that worried and saddened him: his refrigerator was essentially empty and contained only a little water.
This set him into action, which he would later recount in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.
Brandon, however, noted that his ex’s pantry was lucky enough to be able to feed his daughter with baby food, baby food, snacks, and so on.
As Brandon shut the fridge door, he just knew what he had to do.
The Right Thing
Brandon went straight to the supermarket and purchased a long list of groceries for his ex.
“She works a full-time job and then has my daughter,” Brandon later explained on Facebook. “She pays rent and all her bills plus she is paying off a car. So I went shopping today to make sure she had enough to eat for the next few weeks. Because we are not together, I can not take care of her when she needs it.”
Brandon explained that he did so out of respect for his daughter’s mother and understood that a happy mother makes a child happy.
“If my child’s mother is good then I know she is taking care of our daughter the best she can and that makes me happy. Some of y’all think I’m only going to provide for my child, but that’s thinking like a child. It’s time to grow up and take responsibility in all aspects of life!” Brandon concludes in his.
