This morning, Barack took his eldest daughter Malia to her first day of high school. Since both Obama daughters are starting school this week, the Prez won’t be attending the convention until Thursday.
According to Michelle, when it comes to their daughters Sasha and Malia, she and Barack make sure that education is their top priority.
Michelle spoke to Entertainment Tonight about the first daughters and the convention:
“We have always structured our lives where our kids come first and their involvement in politics is at their own discretion. And trust me, there hasn’t been a time when they’ve said, ‘I think I want to watch you do a rally rather than go to this sleepover,’ it’s never happened — surprisingly so. But they’re always welcome and they do enjoy the campaign trail but the older they get the more full lives they have.
You know, they’re on sports teams, they’ve got friends, they’ve got activities …They’re living normal teenage lives and that’s exactly how Barack and I would want it.”
As Michelle preps for her big speech tonight, the fashionably keen First Lady also told ET that she still hasn’t decided on the perfect outfit to wear at the DNC:
“Like any woman, I have no idea yet. I brought many options and it’s going to depend on how I feel that evening so, you know, stay tuned.”
No matter what Michelle chooses to wear, we know she’ll be a hit tonight and we, like the First Family, will be in her corner!
