Mom yells at her grown son after he shames a breastfeeding mother at a public pool
No matter how old your kids are, being a parent means calling them out on their bullshit, as one amazing mom proves in a story making the rounds on Facebook. It involves the shaming of a breastfeeding mother — and a new catchphrase you won’t be able to stop saying.
Nursing mom and photographer Tanja Krstic Radusinovic had an interesting experience feeding her son at a public pool recently. She tells Scary Mommy, “My father was with me and my two sons, ages three and five, while I was breastfeeding my 9 month old son.” And apparently, not everyone was cool with Radusinovic’s radical decision to breastfeed in public.
Her Facebook post, shared by Breastfeeding Mama Talk, tells the story of a guy named Kevin who admonished Radusinovic for nursing at the pool — and quickly came to regret it.
The mom is feeding her baby “under towels” to cut distractions and get him to sleep (which also means she is probably more than covered) when good old Kevin shows up to drop a little knowledge. She explains that he appears to be in his 40s and has a question for her.
“Excuse me, are you breastfeeding your baby?”
Holy shit, dude. Like it was any of his business to ask what a woman is doing with her breasts to begin with, but Radusinovic gamely told him she was and he followed it up with the charming judgment that she shouldn’t be doing “THAT” here. At which point, Kevin’s awesome mom stepped in, whom Rausinovic describes as being a small woman in her 70s. Which makes what comes out of her mouth a whole hell of a lot funnier.
“WHAT DID YOU TELL THAT MOTHER?”
And before Kevin could cobble together a response, Mom Of Kevin went off.
“What the fuck, Kevin?! I had no idea I raised you like that, Kevin! I am not talking to you until you apologize! I breastfed you until you were 18 fucking months, Kevin!” When he claims she “never told him” he was nursed that long, Mom of Kevin brings it home for everyone in the cheap seats.
“WHAT’S THERE TO TALK ABOUT, it is FUCKING NORMAL, Kevin!”
First of all, can we make “What the fuck, Kevin?!” into a meme? Please? I feel like I need this.
Secondly, indeed it is normal. And a grown man should know that. Luckily, Radusinovic tells Scary Mommy that Kevin did apologize after his mom’s verbal lashing telling her, “I’m sorry, I should have minded my own business.”
Ok, Kevin. We will let you off the hook this time. Because it sounds like your mom will have no trouble handing you your ass should you step out of line again.
Now that that’s settled, brb. Going to have “What the fuck, Kevin?!” screen-printed on some t-shirts real quick.
