Anna “Chickadee” Cardwell, the eldest daughter of June Shannon, says she’s willing to put the past in the past with her mom, as long as it truly is the past.

In other words, Mama June has to dump that child molester Mark McDaniel – who once abused Anna – for good or her little girl is flying the coop forever.

Chickadee, now 20 years old, says all is not forgiven when it comes to Mark McDaniel, even though June is acting like it’s water under the bridge at this point.

After meeting last week, mother and daughter have been texting and talking on the phone regularly, trying to move on from the fact that she and Mark dated.

Not just in the past, when he abused Anna Shannon, but this year, after he got out of prison for child molestation and she split up from partner Sugar Bear.

That’s a lot for anyone to take in, and grounds for estrangement. But the younger Shannon (now Anna Cardwell, her married name) is being the bigger person.

Anna says June apologized for dating him, and that the creep is totally out of the picture, but Anna remains hesitant, and it’s hard to blame her for that.

Bottom line: If Mark is in the picture at all going forward, kiss their relationship goodbye, she says. June, for her part, says she’s fine with that stipulation.

All’s well that ends well?
