My Rating :
A hilarious story about motherhood in Paris, where not all kids are well-behaved… Former party girl Vicki has traded wine bottles for baby bottles. If she's awake at 3 a.m. it's because of a crying baby, not a wild night out on the town. From mishaps at the maternity ward to writing baby résumés to get her children into daycare, parenting two French kids has really thrown her for a loop.
Apparently French women don't get fat, yet Vicki's having a heck of a time losing the baby weight with croissants staring at her from every patisserie. And French kids don't throw food? Hers do! With her ever-patient French husband by her side, can Vicki survive motherhood in the City of Light?
Through deadpan humor and sharp observations about daily life, Vicki shares the highs and lows of raising her family in Paris.
Fans of Pamela Druckerman's Bringing Up Bébé will be comforted to know that not all French kids are perfect angels, and readers of Jenny McCarthy's Belly Laughs will enjoy the humor in this parenting memoir. As a contributor to Jen Mann's New York Times best-selling I Just Want to Pee Alone series, Vicki doesn't hold anything back when spilling what it's really like raising kids!
Another hit from the fabulous Vicki Lesage! Once again, the author brings us readers into her life only this time, during her pregnancy and parenting stages. She offers us a glimpse into the life of how it is raise children in Paris while also being pregnant. With the same wit and laugh out loud humor, readers will once again be engrossed in the authors life. You won’t want to miss a single page in this one! It is downright hilarious and fun!
I think it is pretty clear that I loved this book (as I have also found myself loving everything the author writes as she is THAT GOOD). This one is no different than her first novel Confessions of a Paris Party girl in terms of humor in fun. However, in this one we don’t get a glimpse of her partying lifestyle rather, we get a look at her parenting lifestyle! Vicki Lesage shares her pregnancy milestones, scares, and tribulations with her famous humor making me laugh out loud at every turn in the book. I loved seeing how Paris is when it comes to childcare, raising a child who is both French and American, and how the medical community works. It’s great to catch a glimpse at the way the other parts of the world work, and we are able to see this through the eyes of the author! I totally LOVED it.
Once again, this is a MUST read for fans of chick lit and humor. As I mentioned in previous posts, it is a memoir but really reads as a chick lit novel. It is pure perfection and real. If you haven’t gotten your hands on a book by this author yet I strongly suggest doing so. This is an author you don’t want to miss out on!
