Présentation de l'éditeur

#1 Amazon Best Seller in Humor Essays

If you think motherhood in America is a challenge, try navigating the City of Light with a stroller in one hand and a croissant in the other. In this riotous memoir, author Vicki Lesage shares the highs and lows of raising her family in Paris.

A former party girl, Vicki has now traded wine bottles for baby bottles. If she's awake at 2 a.m. it's because of a crying baby, not a wild night out on the town. Follow her journey through pregnancy to raising two kids with her ever-patient French husband, all while trying to enjoy life in Paris.

A funny memoir about pregnancy & French parenting

If you’re looking for a memoir packed with parenting humor, or simply want to know if French parenting really leads to well-behaved kids, this collection of essays is for you!

Interview with the Author

Q. What was your inspiration to write the Confessions series?

A. After a few too many drinks at the bar, I either turn to storytelling or karaoke. I'm much better at storytelling—or so my friends say! They encouraged me to put my tales to paper, and thus was born my series of memoirs, essentially a collection of funny essays.

Q. OK, so they're technically memoirs. But they seem different than traditional memoirs. How would you categorize them?

A. Most of the best selling memoirs are written by celebrities, who already have a huge audience. I had to choose a different angle in order to stand out, so I went for humor. I hope people find my memoirs funny, with all the dating humor you would find in chick lit. I also talk about my travels, so my books would appeal to anyone who likes travel humor and travel memoirs by women. Confessions of a Paris Party Girl includes partying and dating humor, while Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer would fall into the mothering or pregnancy humor categories.

Q. Yikes... Those are practically spoilers!

A. Sorry! Between my French last name and my author bio, I think the cat might already be out of the bag. However, even if you have a rough idea of how it all ends up, you have no idea how rough it was getting there until you read my books!

Q. Aren't there already so many memoirs, and ones about Paris in particular? Why should I choose yours?

A. It's true, there are some really great Paris memoirs out there. The fact that I have read (and enjoyed!) so many best selling memoirs myself makes me think it's a popular genre for a reason. We're always thirsty for another sip of Paris, right? To travel to Paris through the pages of a book... to fall in love with Paris again!

Q. What order should I read the books in?

A. Each book in the Confessions series can stand alone, but like fine wine and pungent cheese, they go great together! I would recommend the following order:

- Petite Confessions: A Humorous Memoirette
- Confessions of a Paris Party Girl: A Humorous Travel Memoir
- Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer: A Humorous Parenting Memoir
- Confessions & Cocktails: A Humorous Memoirette

If you enjoy fun, light reads with an inside look of what it's really like to live in France, you'll enjoy the Confessions series. Thanks for reading!

Easy read you won't want to put down! If you liked Confessions of a Paris Party Girl, you will enjoy following Vicki's adventures as she evolves from Party Girl to Potty Trainer. Just as funny (and sarcastic) as the first book, especially for those of us foreigners navigating through French bureaucracy.

You remember Vicki from the Confessions of a Paris party girl ? She's back! Not only must she now fight French bureaucracy, but she's becoming a mother in Paris and obviously it's not an easy task...
Very entertaining, I laughed out loud and could not put it down and even though I'm French, I loved reading about French bureaucracy and apartment hunting in paris. Hilarious !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An entertaining account of a party girl who become a working mother in Paris 11 juin 2014
Par FrenchVillageDiaries - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle
This book continues on from Vicki's first memoir about her life in Paris, Confessions of a Paris Party Girl. Vicki is just an ordinary woman writing about her life in Paris, but her writing is engaging and entertaining and I recommend you start with book one.

This book shows the same sharp sense of humour and fun outlook on life that I enjoyed in the first book, but gone are her party days and hilarious look at some of the frustrations of French life. Instead she `tastefully' turns her attention to describing with wit the various occasions when she's to be found naked, with her legs in stirrups on an examination table and how to cope becoming a parent in France. She still has plenty to say about (and to) commuters on the Metro and travellers at the airport, but when it comes to talking about her husband and babies her soft side comes out. Paris life, including moving apartments, getting a place in a crèche, becoming part of a local community and registering her son at the US Embassy (where he was given his own flag) are described in just the right amount of detail to keep the story moving nicely along.

Despite the fun and engaging way she writes about her life, on a serious note I know that giving birth isn't easy, so to do so abroad, with complications, must be scary. This book should reassure those in a similar situation that even when things aren't textbook perfect, with a positive attitude they will get through it. I am sure many of the experiences she writes about must have been very emotional and painful at the time and the fact that she can recount them with such honesty and make them entertaining enough to raise a smile is quite incredible - more so, when many of these events only happened earlier on this year.

This is a self-published book, but Vicki has got a great cover designed for her, a keen eyed editor and an author friend to help, all of which ensures it is a book worth reading. Having now read and enjoyed both of her memoirs and her blog, she comes across as hyper organised and always in control, so I can't imagine her ever settling for anything other than total perfection. This shows in the quality of the book. It has been a privilege to read about the first years of their Franco/American family life and I wish them all the best for the future.

I was sent a copy of this book to read and review.

**I received this book for free from the author and in no way has this influenced my opinion of this book. Thank you to Vicki Lesage for the opportunity!**

Vicki delivers another stellar read! I did not think that giving birth and potty training and language training could be any funnier than Vicki's first book that was about partying.......boy was I wrong and could not be happier about it! I highly recommend that if you are considering reading this book that you start with her first book "Confessions of a Paris Party Girl". Although not necessary (this book could stand alone), why would you miss the opportunity to hear the predecessor to this book in all its hilariousness?!? Vicki has a wonderful personality that shows through her writings. I love her sense of humor and openness. She also seems to find the funny side to most things even when she is going through personal struggles. Who could not admire that in a person? Vicki is very fair in calling out the French and the Americans for things that make no sense at all. A very delightful read. I hope that Vicki is still doing this well into her retirement years. It will be like listening to an old friend recount her life in funny detail. I want to hear all about Leo and Stella as they grow up and eventually lead their own lives as well as continue to hear about all the ups and downs that Vicki and Mika continue to face head on while laughing along the way! Now someone get Vicki a drink! I think she deserves it :-)

In Vicki Lesage's first book Confessions of a Paris Party Girl, she describes how she successfully made the transition from America to Paris, made new friends, partied hard, battled French bureaucracy and met and married her own handsome Frenchman, Mika. However, now Vicki's partying ways are behind her (sacre bleu!) as she is expecting an addition (or two) to her French/American family.

Through the trials and tribulations of pregnancy and birth in a new country, Vicki maintains her positive outlook on life and manages to see the funny side. Although there must have been some painful and difficult moments for Vicki following the early arrival of her son Leonardo and threat of an even earlier arrival by her daughter Stella, she maintains her composure and tells us only the interesting and idiosyncratic side of living in Paris as seen by an outsider. As in her first book, Vicki's voice is very much her own and her affection for her adopted country with all its peculiarities shines clearly as she navigates her way around the French medical system, the difficulties of finding a new apartment each time a baby is added to the household and coping with a life without alcohol. A very charming and often hilarious memoir. I do hope we here more of Vicki's Parisian adventures with Mika, Leo and Stella in the future.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 I really enjoyed "Confession of a Paris Potty" by Vicki Lesage 2 juillet 2014

ARC received from author for an honest review.

Thank you to Vicki Lesage for an ARC of Confessions of a Paris Potty.
I really enjoyed "Confession of a Paris Potty" by Vicki Lesage. One of the reasons that I love Lesage's writing so much is that it's so relateable. In her previous book "Confessions of a Party Girl in Paris" she shared her experiences as a single girl living it up in Paris. Now, she is married and with children. I loved the raw truth and also the cultural comparisons. I've read so many times how Parisian and American culture is different and after reading Lesage's experiences its easy to see that there are many differences. Because I also have kids and am married I found myself nodding my head over so many of her experiences. The added bonus is hearing about life in Paris which is always a great treat. I really enjoyed and recommend this wonderful book about everyday life in sophisticated France and not always dealing with sophisticated situations. Great read! Thank you to the author for this very enjoyable book!

Maybe I'm the wrong audience for this book, I don't know. I doubt it because I typically love true stories about people with kids because kids can say and do the funniest things. This book, in my opinion, just wasn't funny.

There were few stories about the actual kids themselves, more about how backward the French medical system is, requiring maternity patients to strip and sit on the examining table totally naked, without even a paper gown. There were several stories about how expensive it is to live in Paris, the cost of apartments and how bizarrely apartments there can be laid out. There were also a lot of comments about how thin French women are and how much the author used to drink.

I kept reading because I figured that soon I'd get to the funny parts that made people rave about this book in reviews. Well I never got there and I'm wondering where all these fantastic 5 star reviews came from.
