Malia,14, and Sasha,11, are growing right before their parents’ eyes!  The President and First Lady Obama recently conducted an interview with Vogue magazine where they talked about life as parents of a tween and teen.

“Our job is, first and foremost, to make sure our family is whole,” said Michelle Obama in the April issue of the magazine. “You know, we have small kids; they’re growing every day. But I think we were both pretty straightforward when we said, ‘Our number-one priority is making sure that our family is whole.'”

Michelle also commented on Sasha and Malia’s social life saying, “The Secret Service has to change the way they do things; they have to become more flexible. And they do. Because they want to make sure that these girls are happy and that they have a normal life.”

She added, “There’s a lot of energy that goes into working with staff, working with [Secret Service] agents, working with friends’ parents to figure out how do we, you know, let these kids go to the party and have a sleepover and walk through the city on their own, go to the game. Any parent knows that these are the times when you’re just a scheduler and chauffeur for your kids. And that doesn’t change for us. Ninety percent of our conversation is about these girls: What are they doing? And who’s got what practice? And what birthday party is coming up? And did we get a gift for this person? You know, I mean, it is endless and it gets to be pretty exhausting, and if you take your eye off the ball, that’s when their lives become inelastic.”

“As I joked at a press conference, now that they want less time with us, who knows? Maybe you’ll see us out in the clubs,” joked the President.

Malia enjoys life as a high school freshman, while Sasha makes lots of friends in Middle School. Both girls will celebrate their birthdays this summer.

  1. We want to start our own blog page together on blogspot, but I just thought about us having our own separate google accounts. How can we start a blog page together where it’ll be easier for both of us to log on besides just using one person’s google account?.

  2. They are so beautiful! I used to always say how tall Malia is but Sasha has sure gotten very tall herself. She may end up being the taller sister…

  3. First Lady Michelle said that the girls are turning President Obama’s hair gray and I can see why because they are both gorgeous young ladies.

  4. Sasha is right up there with Malia. What a difference in those two photos; especially with Sasha…she looks so little!

  5. It’s great to be able to watch these young ladies grow up before my eyes. They are beautiful, smart & have the right parents.

  6. They are such beautiful girls and its crazy how fast kids grow (haha cant believe i am saying that, considering its all i hear from family friends who havent seen me since i was a pre-teen lol).
