Kelly Oxford’s seven year old just called it for the sisterhood
“Do women get their periods on weekends too? Jesus Christ.” If you haven’t heard about seven-year-old Bea Oxford, the girl who muttered this glorious phrase earlier this week, then you must have been living under a rock.
Canadian Kelly Oxford, 38, is an accomplished author, screenwriter and blogger who has been named one of Time magazine’s top 140 Twitter feeds of 2011 and 2012. But Kelly’s daughter Bea is the reason her mother has been catapulted into the social spotlight this week.
The seven-year-old’s pithy comments have made her the main attraction of Kelly’s feed – helping the author to grow an extensive online following in the process (she currently has over 673,000 Twitter followers.) The mother-daughter duo’s hilarious tweets have been turned into a best-selling book and have been praised by celebrities like US comedian Jimmy Kimmel.
