Former first lady 米歇尔奥巴马 has always been proud of her daughters, but in her forthcoming book, The Light We Carry, she talks about a new level of pride that comes with seeing Malia萨沙 flourish as roommates while they navigate adulthood.

仍然, there are a couple aspects ofadultingthat Michelle admits they could work on. 他们之中: upping their cocktail game.

在接受采访时 珍娜·布什·海格霍达·科特布今天 show Monday morning, 米歇尔 told a hilarious story of when Malia, 24, 和萨沙, 21, invited her and Barack over to their apartment for drinks.

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. “我们就像, '好的, 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, 他们就像, ‘Uh uh uh — use a coaster!'” 她说. “我喜欢, ‘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 “最好的朋友” 在洛杉矶, keeping each other afloat thousands of miles from their parents.

There was a period of time when they couldn’t stand each other. 我说, ‘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,” 米歇尔 说. “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.
