Celebrity Kid Style: Brooklynn Proulx, What’s Not to Love?

Say what you will about some of the fashions that were on display at the premiere of  The Time Traveler’s Wife, but I happen to think that young Brooklynn Proulx hit the proverbial ball out of the proverbial park with this outfit.

I love the dress, love the chain belt, love the red purse.  All of it adorable and totally age appropriate.  Noah Cyrus, get out some paper and start taking notes, young lady!

Woman Twitters Labor and Birth, World Shrugs and Wonders Why This is News

So yes, the wife of Twitter CEO twittered details of her labor and birth of their son.

Why exactly is this making headlines in newspapers and newscasts?

She certainly isn’t the first to do so, and I’m going to take a gander that she won’t be the last.

I’m not against the details of her Tweets, which include snippets such as “Epidural, yes please.”

But does the world really need to know the details? I am all for keeping family members and friends in the loop, but do her 16,000 followers really care?

And I would also think that it would be nice for her to be “in the moment” of such a momentous occasion, rather than texting on her iPhone between contractions.   I mean, if I’m in enough pain to want an epidural, then the last thing on my mind is what I’m going to tweet.

Maybe the birth of a child is indeed a nice break from the constant depressing news cycle, but this seems to be taking things a bit too far, no?
