As regular readers of this site know, I often like to like to throw out some love to new blogs that are just getting their feet wet. There are so many great ones that get started all the time and discovering them is like finding a cool new band or a new favorite author. Most of the blogs that I recommend to all of you are parenting blogs. But now, for the first time, I want to introduce to you a very special blog, written by a very special child. Ladies & Gentlemen, please put your hands together and welcome...young Maddox Jolie.
As many of you know, Maddox's mother is none other than Angelina Jolie. And though he's only 4, Maddox has proven to be quite an astute observer of his surrounding environment. He's insightful, sensitive and interesting. But more than anything else, it's his "voice" as a writer that makes his blog so compelling.
"Ange told me we might be getting another one. I'm not so sure if that's good," reads one entry posted shortly after Angelina adopted her second child, Zahara Marley Jolie. Maddox continues: "Zahara and Ange have been sleeping together a lot, and Hero [his nickname for Brad Pitt] usually sleeps in a tent outside and prays and talks to himself and builds fires and draws pictures of houses."
He also refers to Brad Pitt as "BradDad," as when he mentions recently that "BradDad caught meningitis two weeks ago. I wonder if it has anything to do with Zahara and the other stuff we brought home from Africa."
So if you want to know what life is like for celebrity offspring or if you just want to know why Maddox is always being carried by his mother, check out Maddox's blog.
