We’ve known for quite some time that President and First Lady Obama are super cute in ways that we usually catch quickly in videos, during speeches or in pictures. But in a recent interview with PEOPLE magazine, she revealed that they share a nightly ritual:
“We have a ritual where he tucks me in, because I’m usually in bed before anybody. He’ll come and turn the lights out and give me a kiss and we’ll talk. He’s like, ‘Ready to be tucked?’ I’m like, ‘Yes I am.’”
Isn’t that sweet? I can actually picture President Obama doing this and perhaps Mrs. Obama still being giddy about their nightly “thing.” One could assume that small gestures like this are what help to keep them connected to one another.
Mrs. Obama further added that the family dinner time is at 6:30 and they spend the first 30 minutes talking to daughters Malia and Sasha and the time after is just for checking in on each other. That’s right, the girls are sent to walk the dog while they get a private moment to shoot the breeze.
It is so hard not to shout “Awwwww” when you see or hear something like this with Obamas.
Do you and your significant other have any rituals (keep it Rated R and under, people)? What types of things do you do to keep you two connected?
