They Grow Up So Fast

Last time I checked in on long-ago Gawker writer Joshua David Stein, he was regaling all and sundry at Gilt.com with his august account of a less-well-bred journalist crashing a Bentley during a winter junket to Connecticut. That was back in 2011.

Now, in 2014, Stein has two kids, a doublewide stroller, and a highly cultivated hatred of Caillou, and he's writing about his daddish hashtags on the J. Crew tumblr.

One of his kids is even named Augustus, perhaps a reminder of his dad's former gallivanting style.

The thing is, a few years ago, well before I was a father myself, I thought, "What kind of schmucks flood social media with photos of their progeny?" But now, not only do I post photos on Instagram and Facebook, but Achilles has his own hashtag (#achilles4president) and Augustus does too (#auggiebehr).
