Homes everywhere need cleaning - but few homeowners have the time and energy required to scrub surfaces day in and day out. Mom’s, in particular, are overburdened - and as a result, many are turning to semi-regular cleaning so that their place stays spotless.…

Baby Showers: The Next Big Thing

Like so many modern celebrations, Baby Showers have arrived in the UK from North America. It’s a real tradition over there and, like High School Proms, Halloween and Black Friday, one of those exciting social events that is catching on big time over here.

The idea is simple but universally appealing. Throw a party for the pregnant mother and her…

Bonjour! Wonder what living in Paris is really like? What the tourists don't see?

Revel in tales from the Expat Mommy Track in the most beautiful city on earth!

If you think Paris = great wine/food/cheese/fashion/shopping... well, yes and non!

La Mom's Paris is all about bitchy mommy dinner clubs, even bitchier book clubs, pricey mommy maintenance, playdate protocol, and catty mommy profiling. All that with a bit of complaining about the French and dog poop mixed in!

About MOI: I'm an American mom living in Paris (16th arrondissement) for over a decade. I have a French husband (Big Cheese) and two French Fries (Big Fry & Small Fry).

You may reach for the Dorito chips when your kids stress you out, but I keep things under control with a constant flow of champagne, croissants, and café au lait!
What is your blogging philosophy?
Lightheartedly making fun of living in France while raising two French/American kids.
I have been blogging since...

You just slip out the back,

Jacques

Make a new plan,

Stanislas

You don’t need to be coy,

LeRoy

Just listen to me

Hop on the bus,

Gustave

Don’t need to discuss much

Just drop off the key,

Louis

And get yourself free…



Lyrics by Paul Simon and La Mom




Jacques had a problem. Make that a gros problème. Married life was nothing like it was cracked…

Flashing - French Style

Posted on July 15, 2009 at 11:01am 0 Comments

I’ve discovered there’s more than one way to be the most popular mom at the school fair.



Some mamans slave over homemade madeleines, some donate bottles of Château Margaux wine to the raffle, and then there’s my tactic.



Flash the dads.



OK, so it wasn’t a part of the original plan. Last Friday was our first-ever school fair – and I was feeling the pressure. I knew I’d see Arabelle, the snooty Alpha-Maman who somehow managed four small children, ran the PTA… Continue

Nanny Don'ts

Posted on January 17, 2009 at 6:00pm 2 Comments

The new nanny started last week and I don't think our association will make it to the end of next week.



So once again, I'm nanny hunting. DO NOT APPLY IF YOU PLAN ON DOING THE FOLLOWING:



-Asking for August vacation dates on your first day at work (in January).



-Asking for a salary advance on your second day at work.



-Showing up 20 minutes late on your third day at work (with the lame excuse that you got stuck in your buiding's… Continue

Le Freak, C'est Chic...Freak Out!

If you live in Paris long enough, you’ll definitely meet a Jennifer. “Jennifer” is La Mom’s code name for the typical American girl with the Stars’n’Stripes in her eyes and apple pie on her hips.



Jennifer’s story usually goes something like this – she came to the Sorbonne on her junior year abroad, fell in love with the city, fell in love with a French man, and voilà! Ten years and three kids later, she’s living the high life on the Avenue Foch with a live-in nanny, an ugly-ass… Continue

Salut! How is life in Paris? I'd much rather be there than here in Berlin, I imagine. . .

Hi! Nice to meet you. Had to laugh at your 'about' description on your blog. Drop me a line if you are feeling homesick for (still) sunny (scary--where's the rain, it's December?) Northern CA.

Bonjour! Thanks for becoming a friend =). Now I get to travel... through you, lol.

Oh wow! How do you like living in Paris? We went there on our honeymoon many, many moons ago. If you need your LA fix, I'm here for ya! (BTW, it's been in the 90s here!)

I LOVE Paris. Ok, I've never made it there, yet. But a trip is in the works. I'll be reading your blog with great interest. What a wonderful chance to learn so much about another culture!
