TIME TO CREATE THE NEW

by MullOverThis

Some things warrant uniqueness. Things of this nature need not ever be viewed in the mishmash of other human experiences that are utterly insane.

It is time to create the new terminology for such things. How about the word, “demenfoolery”? A good combination of what can only been viewed as demented foolery seems to suffice for this here thingamajig.

This mother, Sharon Spink, poses with a picturesque smile while breastfeeding her 5 year-old daughter who is big enough to no longer be cradled in her much bountiful arms and on her lap.  In other words, this generously sized woman has a child whose legs are too long to fit on her body but still allows this child to breast feed.

Let’s get some good use of the new word. Demenfoolery could not have had a greater début.

This child undoubtedly can talk, has teeth that can cut through a prime cut of filet mignon, can walk, can run, can poop on the big people’s toilet all by herself for probably at least 2 years now–if she was substantially LATE in toilet training–yet, has a reserved space on big momma’s breasts because she has to decide when it is time for her to stop breast-feeding.

Since when does a child have the mental acuity and capacity to know how to develop oneself?  With all the advanced medical and child development knowledge we have in today’s information age, mothers still think 5 year-old children need breast milk. Most pediatricians advise that children DO NOT need breast milk after about age 2. Heightened immunity because of 27 years of breast-feeding a child who can stand up and snatch a breast out and help oneself has not been proven anywhere.

The notion that a child needs to bond by breast-feeding at this over-the-hill age in infant development  is also demenfoolery. Bond by taking a walk in the park. Bond by doing a MJ dance track on a Wii system. Bond by watching a season of the Boondocks. Even the influence of raunchy superior whit in that cartoon series isn’t as harmful as sitting a child who is no longer an infant or toddler on a lap to help a mom with issues let go and rear a child. Bond by doing age appropriate activities.

Many will read this in an uproar because they breastfeed 12 year-olds and this is customary in many cultures. Many cultures which practice this, do so because they cannot afford milk and use this as an elongated form of nourishment for children who might otherwise be hungry. In many of these same cultures, children work at these tender ages and do not come home from a day’s work and start to yapping with a mouth full of teeth.

Please, demenfoolery mothers and demenfoolery fathers who allow their children to be breast-fed at these late stages of development, don’t get mad when your children are 72 and still want you to pay a car note and have a mental breakdown when you don’t text them back 2 seconds after they’ve tried to call you.
