Mom doesn’t want food her daughter is allergic to at her own party

“I didn’t think it was too much to ask for to have a day in store for my daughter when she will have to spend the rest of her life working with everyone.”

One Reddit user commented, “It’s not her father’s day, and it’s not her cousins’ day. Yes, she’s just a baby right now, but she’s going to live with it.” those restrictions forever. You (and hopefully your husband) don’t want to set the precedent that for her birthday, not only does she have to spend the whole day seeing and smelling a bunch of delicious food that she doesn’t. can’t eat, but she also has to watch all of her family eat while she is alone. “

“Your daughter’s birthday is for her, not for them. If they’re stupid enough to not know that there are many vegan options that are delicious, and they refuse to try new things because ‘they “know” they won’t like it, maybe they’re not mature enough to attend a one-year-old’s party, ”another agreed.
