We just got back from 5 days of pure blissdom and I haven’t quite gotten back into the groove of reality yet – I’m still half expecting Luscious to show up with 2 drinks in hand and a massage table.
The kids had a blast at their Mini Club Med – which should be renamed to “God’s Gift to Parent Sanity” as from 9:00am to 9:30pm the kids participate in super-fun vacation just for them. To call it babysitting would be an insult, as they probably had more fun and activities than the adults! Circus school, swimming, Petit Chef, Petit Tennis, playing in sand, yoga, just to name a few.
I think the biggest compliment to Club Med would be a conversation that Nathan had with me:
“Mama, my cheeks hurt!”
“Oh baby, what happened, did you fall down?”
“No Mama, I laughed and smiled so much that my cheeks hurt now! I can’t smile anymore.”
Without missing a beat, Andrew turned around and said, “Nathan, it’s easy. Let me help you smile.”
…and Andrew goes right back to eating.
Obama, honey. I got a better candidate than Clinton. Andrew’s your man. This 5 year old can fix any situation! How can world leaders resist such common sense and cuteness? The world’s problems would be solved so simply!

I have to thank beautiful Kate Moeller, the Official Superwoman from Club Med and Morgan Painvan PR Goddess for hosting our family.
Their film crew were great with kids and we got some awesome footage of Andrew and Nathan in their Petit Chef program that we’ll be using on their new website launching in January.
Also got to meet this lovely lady and her family! Anyways, I’ll be headed back to Club Med in a couple of months for the Food and Wine Festival and to get more video footage and food porn. Anyone want to join?
