Sasha Obama Recital: President Takes Night Off To Be A Dad
The President attended daughter Sasha Obama’s recital Saturday night at the Music Center at Strathmore.
Taking a break from his presidential responsibilities to support his daughter, Obama watched as 11-year-old Sasha performed during a dance recital just last night, reports the Washington Post.
Sasha is Obama’s youngest of two daughters. Sasha’s older sister is 14-year-old Malia.
Even though they are arguably the two most famous kids in America, Michelle Obama has said before that she works very hard to make sure that the Obama girls have a normal life.
“I want them to be normal kids, just like you guys, polite and respectful and kind,” she said back in January.
The president seemed to agree. Now that his girls are becoming teenagers, they don’t have much time to spend with their dad.
“Now that my girls are getting older, they don’t want to spend that much time with me anyway, so I’ll be probably calling around, looking for somebody to play cards with me or something, because I’m getting kind of lonely in this big house,” he also said in January, per the Christian Post.
Sasha enjoyed some spotlight of her own during Obama’s presidential inauguration ceremony when she was caught yawning. The reaction went viral.
Hang in there, Sasha. You’ve still got a big day ahead of you. gifboom.com/x/745fb39e
