Former first lady 미셸 오바마 has always been proud of her daughters, but in her forthcoming book, 우리가 나르는 빛, she talks about a new level of pride that comes with seeing Malia 그리고 사샤 flourish as roommates while they navigate adulthood.
아직, there are a couple aspects of “adulting” that Michelle admits they could work on. Among them: upping their cocktail game.
“We were going to take them to dinner and they said, ‘Why don’t you come over to our spot for cocktails!'” Michelle recalled, expressing playful skepticism in her voice. “그리고 우리는 같았다, '괜찮아, let’s see what this is going to be like.'”
She continued with a laugh: “The martinis were a little weak. I don’t think they really knew what it was.”
Michelle went on to point out that her daughters also were quick to call them out for not using coasters.
“When we got the g;asses, 그들은 같았다, ‘Uh uh uh — use a coaster!'” 그녀가 말했다. “그리고 나는 마치, ‘You never used a coaster in my house. So now when it’s your stuff you want to take care of it!'”
Moving to a more serious tone, Michelle then expressed that aside from the excitement of seeing her kids becoming responsible adults, the thing she loves most is seeing them thrive as “그들을 그녀라고 부른다” 로스앤젤레스에서, keeping each other afloat thousands of miles from their parents.
“There was a period of time when they couldn’t stand each other. 그리고 나는 말했다, ‘You wait. You are going to wake up one day and you are going to look over at that other person and know that you two share something very unique,’ especially given what they’ve been through,” Michelle said. “And to see them in that place where they’re one another’s support systems and they’ve got each other’s backs, is just — it’s the thing that a mother would want.”
