Une photo, une histoire #3

The third post from Une photo, une histoire. How exciting! May I start saying pardon?! Baba is a bit of a show off in this one.


Yeah, you got it. The babe en action! I had to select this picture because I love so much the cool attitude he has.

It was taken last Sunday. Frenchie Mummy was well excited as la petite famille was out for the day, on a mission to have lunch in a countryside pub. I imagine you, reading these lines and thinking ‘What a strange French woman… Being so happy about a roast dinner! Crazy French people…Not only they eat snails, but now they love our dearest roast!’

Well, dear readers… I didn’t have a roast! Much better than that if I may. I enjoyed some massive burger and chips before finishing my meal with an enormous slice of pecan pie. Salivating? Would you please stop!? You are looking at my son right now and this kind of behaviour is very inapproprié! I know he is kind of delicious, but still.

The truth is Grumpy Boyfriend is working super hard at the moment. Non-stop… He gets up early in the morning, works sometimes still in his dressing gown (don’t tell him I shared that with you! He would kill me!). 10.00pm and he is far from being finished. Someone needs to make money in this house. And the good news for you is that Frenchie Mummy can write funny (or not) posts for you to read!

So you may have understood it, we don’t go out often lately. That’s why both Baba and I were very eager to go for a pub lunch. Typical British weather oblige, it was pretty cold and rainy when we left the house. Therefore, I covered up le bébé so that he didn’t get cold. I know; what a caring mum I am, right?

But then, horreur! As we were on the way, the sun came out. Miracle! And it was pretty bright as well. Frenchie Mummy had to intervene. Vite! She gets out the sublime shades and put them on Baba. He has fragile eyes. And she is rather a worrying maman

I thought I would have a go. To me, it was pretty sure that Baba will immediately try to take them off. Too tempted to discover this new object and avid to put them in his mouth, the sunglasses should not have lived long on his nez. Mais par magie, Baba decided to leave them on. Even better, he started sucking on his pacifier. It was so funny! I wish I filmed it.

And me to take pictures ‘Click! Click!’ as he was so beau! He carried on, rolling his eyes ‘Encore des photos…Whatever!’ You know in the Simpsons’ credits, when you see Maggie sucking her dummy while on the till, right? It was just like this. My Baba was pretending to be a baby star.


Next thing you know, he will be on the cover of Jojo Maman Bébé catalogue…

Since then, the babe has practised the art of les lunettes de soleil. Look at this one when he sunbathed on our balcony while watching the nature outside (and probably thinking of his next post).


That’s it folks! Did you actually read a whole post about a French babe wearing shades? You and your obsession with cute babies… I forgive you. That’s true: il est trop beau, mon fils! 😍
