I should probably save this French book for Paris in July, but I started it this week so I'll go ahead and share the opening and a teaser here. It's Confessions of a Paris Potty Trainer by Vicki Lesage. I previously read and reviewed her book Confessions of a Paris Party Girl, which was a lot of fun in a Bridget Jones memoir-style. I loved the explanation of all the hoops she had to jump through to marry her Frenchman. Now Lesage has moved on to child birthing and child rearing in the City of Light. Here's the intro.
"Oh la la," she said, surprised. "I can fit two fingers in there."Now, if you're like me, I immediately guessed what she was talking about. Here's a hint though, the first chapter is titled "Confessions at the Check-Up."
I'm joining Teaser Tuesday this week too.
Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Open to a random page of your current read and share a teaser sentence from somewhere on that page. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser.
Here's a teaser from 42% on my Kindle as she prepares the baby for daycare:
"In the beginning, the babies will drink bottles at mealtimes. As you introduce new foods at home, let us know and we will do the same here. Each Monday, Chef posts the menu for the week. You can check the meal plan to ensure you don't serve the same dish for dinner."That explains so much about the French, doesn't it? Every preschool and daycare has its own chef. Can you imagine? Pretty different from the lunch ladies with the hairnet at American schools.
I look forward to seeing all of your intros and teasers this week.
Wow! A chef at each school! Nice!
Today I'm featuring The From-Aways by CJ Hauser
The title made me laugh out loud... sounds like a fun read.
Keep reading! This looks like great fun.
Sounds interesting! I hope you are enjoying it. My teasers this week are from The Inventor's Secret by Andrea Cremer and Shadow Spell by Nora Roberts. Happy reading!
I keep being reminded of why I don't want children... Haha! Great teaser! Here's my Teaser Tuesday!
This one sounds like fun! Thanks for sharing...and yes, I knew what those two fingers were about! LOL

It's always fun to read books about first time parents. :-)
LOVE the Paris setting, and your Teaser made me want to read more. Sounds like a fun book.
My Teaser is from MAJOR PETTIGREW'S LAST STAND.
How cool to see teasers from my book! It's really funny to see excerpts out of context. Hope you enjoy the rest of it, and thanks for sharing!
Sounds fun; thanks for sharing and enjoy
Wow, that sounds like an interesting read! A chef at day care is pretty impressive...
Here is my TT post.
A chef for preschoolers? Can't believe it. Must mean they care a great deal about how their kids are treated. Diet must be really important to the French.
