Growing up at the White House under public scrutiny must be a terrifying concept. But our current tween first daughters, Malia
and Sasha Obama
, are taking it in stride. In fact, they're just normal gals interested in clothes, makeup and parties.
Sure, scheduling parent time in between meetings with world leaders isn't what most tweens do. But staying up late to gab about makeup with mom is. During a recent appearance on The View, Michelle Obama
spoke candidly about her girls:
We do a lot of talking. Sometimes it's too much. After our military families tour, I came in, it was 10:30 at night, we were beat. We did four cities in two days, and Malia's like, 'Ma, I need to talk to you.' And we talked, and we talked. We talked about make-up, actually."
Malia and Sasha are also daddy's girls. President Barack Obama
may remain cool and composed when confronted with issues like Gaddafi, the Tea Party and even global warming. But he can get downright choked up when he thinks about his daughters growing up. Michelle says:
He says he's cool, but you know the first time Malia went out for a party and she was dressed—she had her hair done and she's tall, she had on a pretty dress—you could see him. He was sort of like...gulp. And I was like, 'Easy dad.'
Come on, say it with us—awww.
