Aw, here’s a nice story for your Mother’s Day. First Lady Michelle Obama talked aout raising her daughters in the White House and called her own mom her “rock.” Pop the hood.
The New York Times reports on a special tea, hosted by the First Lady.
On Friday, Michelle Obama hosted a Mother’s Day Tea at the White House along with mothers, daughters and granddaughters who previously resided there, and she got briefly emotional as she described the “beautiful experience” of raising her daughters in the historic home alongside her mother.
“The opportunity to have three generations living in the White House, it’s beautiful,” the first lady said, after introducing “my mommy,” Marian Robinson, sitting nearby. “And I’m pretty sure the president is happy about it, too,” she added — to laughter from a group that surely included a few mothers-in-law.
“This woman who tries to take absolutely no credit for who I am for some reason, she is my rock,” Mrs. Obama said of her mother.
