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.

8 Times Bea Oxford Knew More Than Us

Here are our top 8 favourite Bea-isms, because no-one drops a truth-bomb quite like a seven-year-old.

  • Period Real Talk

“7yr old “Do women get their periods on weekends too?”
Me “Yes”
7yr old mutters to herself “Jesus Christ””

Women everywhere be like IKR?!

  • The Diet Dilemma

7YO, while cooking dinner:

“Salmon is so beautiful. I feel bad for eating it. I should be vegetarian.” Sighs, “But meat tastes too good.”

Us, everyday. Before we order a burger.

  • Waiter Woes

Waiter: You finished dessert fast; want anything else?

Bea 7yo: No thanks (Whispers to self) kinda weird to ask that after serving dessert.

We’re with the kid on this one.

  • Trash (TV) Talk

James “Bea, you can’t watch Kardashians, it’s the worst garbage for your brain.”

Bea “I know, that’s why I love it.”

7yr olds know. 

BRB, Millionaire Matchmaker’s on. 

  • Instagram Issues

Me: Look at the sunset; it’s so pink.

7yr old Daughter: Please, don’t take a picture.

Because we really can’t deal with your Amaro/Valencia dilemmas RN. 

  • Literary LOLs

Bea: Can you quiz me on my book “A Dog Tail”

Me: How long’s the tail?

Bea: No idea.

Me: Dog’s name?

Bea: I ONLY READ THE BOOK ONCE, GOD!

Nothing is ever good enough for them, y’know?

  • Explaining Evil

7yr old daughter walked in the room, casually confirmed, “You have to have a backstory to why you’re evil, right?” And walked out.

We’re taking this and running with it.
