You know you live in France when no playdate is complete without the three 3 L’s:
Louis (as in Vuitton)
La Perla (as in lingerie)
Lanvin (as in shoes)
The French Fries had a playdate today and it was centered around what any kid whose DNA is half French would care about: food and fashion, of course.
The Fries played dress up and went shopping for baguettes (French bread) at the boulangerie. They insisted on wearing La Mom’s Lanvin heels, my favorite Vuitton Nomade handbag which was used as the bread basket, and my La Perla panties. Small Fry imagined they were pretty necklaces and draped herself in at least 5 different ones.
Big Fry made me proud when his American DNA made a guest appearance as I overheard them playing:
Big Fry: Bonjour Monsieur, I’d like one traditional baguette and one normal baguette, s’il vous plait.
(I’ve been living in France for a very long time and I still don’t know the differences between baguettes.)
Small Fry: Oui, baguette please.
Big Fry: Let’s walk home this way Small Fry.
Small Fry: Oui, this way Big Fry.
Big Fry: Oh la la! Be careful where you step! You’re about to do a bétise (something stupid). La Mom will be very angry if you get dog crotte on her shoes!!
Clearly, my nagging about where to walk on Paris streets has paid off!
The French are going crazy for La First Mom - Michelle Obama. Here she is visiting the Eiffel Tower Friday with les filles. She was spotted shopping today at one of my favorite children's boutiques - Bonpoint.
