Dad drops off baby medication to ex – heart breaks when he walks into apartment

Sometimes, unfortunately, it is necessary for couples to separate. I think this may indeed be the best option after all possible solutions are tested and exhausted.
This was the case of Brandon Carpenter and his ex. Despite sharing a child together, the two decided it would be best to go their separate ways.
However, as Brandon revealed later, separating doesn’t mean you are parting ways with an enemy. This becomes especially relevant when you are parents of the same child.
Brandon Carpenter has a beautiful young daughter. And although he and the child’s mother have separated, it certainly has had no impact on his love for his daughter — and respect for her mother. He proved this in a way that now has people everywhere cheering.
His ex asked if he could drop some medicine off for their daughter. When Brandon arrived at her apartment, he noticed something that left him concerned and saddened: her refrigerator was essentially empty and contained only some water.
This set him into action, which he would later recount in a Facebook post that has since gone viral.

Brandon noticed that his ex’s pantry was, however, thankfully full of baby food for his daughter, stocked with formula, baby snacks, and more.
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 today I went shopping to make sure she had food for the next few weeks. Just because we aren’t together doesn’t mean I can’t provide for her if she needs it.”

Justified Reaction

Brandon explained that he did this out of respect for his daughter’s mom and understands that a happy mother makes a happy child.
“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 Facebook post.

Disagreements come up in every relationship, but it’s important to try to remain civil, especially when there’s a child involved. Brandon’s fine conduct is really something that every parent can look up to.
Now there’s a father who certainly understands a thing or two about life after separation! Share if you think Brandon did the right thing, too.
