Papa, sa fille, et l'éclair au chocolat




2012 Jan 12 1st_0793


Papa, his daughter and the chocolate éclair


The two of them opened the bag from the pâtisserie.  He helped remove her red mittens, seen here peeking out of her coat pocket.  She patiently waited while he "prepared" the éclair for eating.  He patiently waited as she ate the éclair, and then shared with him.  They devoured it all, and he even had some wipes to remove the chocolate from hands and face.


This was late afternoon, and he had probably picked her up from school.  I wonder if they will tell Maman why this little French girl does not have much appetite for dinner.

What a delightful shot and, of course, you're right -- Maman is going to have questions regarding the lack of appetite!! I love it!! Hope your week is going well, Genie!!

Sweet photo, I agree, Genie. I love the little girl's outfit and le cartable (leather bag.) Was it Dad's? Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Such a delightful moment Genie. Father and daughters should share moments like these every now and then. Thank you for bringing back similar memories of my own.

Hello Genie:
How delightful, how utterly charming. And what a wonderful story could be woven around this small but very intimate incident. We love this picture and how splendid that you should have captured the moment.

Cute! I bet papa didn't tell Maman about the eclair he shared with his daughter. Some things are best left secret! LOL

M said...

Absolutely adorable! What a capture!

Jack said...

That is so cute, Genie. Bravo!!

Mary said...

This is SO wonderful! Daddy and his little girl out for a little secret (and delicious) fun!

SRQ said...

Great capture, Genie. I wonder, when this little girl grows up, if she will remember special simple times with her dad, like sharing an eclair.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Éclairs are delicious and quite filling. I am not sure about the secrecy arrangement here but she will forever remember the day(s) when papa bought an éclair for them to share.

I was grateful to have been there to share in the moment.

Bises,
Genie
