“I Didn’t Want To Be Such A Crybaby.” President Obama Gets Emotional Talking About Malia Growing Up
We love a good daddy-daughter story and this one just so happens to come from our Commander and Chief and his eldest daughter Malia.
This fall, Malia Obama enrolled in her senior year of high school. During a speech at Maycomb County Community College, President Obama shared the experience with the audience gathered to hear him speak.
“Just yesterday, Malia started her first day of senior year. You know, I was sitting in her room because I was going to see her off her first day of school. “She puts her head on my shoulder and she says, ‘Daddy, you know, you realize this is probably going to be the last time that you ever send me off for my first day of school.'”
“And I started – I had to look away. I didn’t want to just be such a crybaby. It makes no sense. Michelle and I are way too young to have daughters who are both almost in college now. So as a parent, I was a little freaked out.”
It’s hard for us to believe that Malia is going to school this soon and we’ve only known of her for eight years. We can only imagine how the President and the First Lady feel.
