Happy Birthday Monsieur President

Dear Daddy Sarkozy,

Quelqu'un m'a dit (no, not Carla, it was Facebook) that it's your birthday today. Happy 54th!

You've been Daddy of France for almost 2 years and you've been quite a busy bee. They say once you're over the hill you begin to pick up speed. That's so true in your case. You've been reforming left and right, spanking your Justice & Human Rights Ministers and sending them to the naughty corner on a daily basis, travelling all over the world managing crises, and romancing La Carla every night.
Hey Dad, when are you gonna slow down a bit? France needs you for another eight years!

I wonder what gifts you'll be getting for your big Cinq-Quatre?

-Carla singing "Happy Birthday Mr. President" to you in her birthday suit?
-A new (and better) pair of platform shoes so you don't have to stand on your tippy toes next to Carla? I hear Tom Cruise's shoemaker is looking to expand his business in Europe....

-A Swatch watch?
Big Fry picked out the Chrono Plastic for you. It would be a great PR move on your part to wear plastic on your wrist during the recession. Yet Daddy, somehow I think you'd probably prefer a Vacheron Constantin chronograph (at about 300 times the price of a Swatch) recession or not. Who cares about image?

Joyeux Anniversaire Daddy!
And don't forget, age is important only if you're cheese or wine.

Kisses on both cheeks,
La Mom

Hi La Mom, I just wanted to say that I'm new to your blog but I love it already! I live in Budapest and move a bit in expat circles here, but they are not so hallowed as yours. Ok, so everyone but me seems to have a cleaning lady, but not too many nannies and the designer stuff is not obvious, except for on the Koreans :0). I know a few French ladies and they are actually quite down-to-earth, albeit stylish (not Parisians?). I don't have any playground time either, as most kids get bussed into our school (it's on the outskirts of the city. Anyhoo, I'm enjoying all your observations, so keep up the good work!!

Uh, I don't know, La Mom. He seems like he has a bit of a short man/Napoleon complex. I love that he may be doing great things for France, but I'm not so sure I want to see him in HIS birthday suit.
