On Monday, the first lady made an appearance at the Children’s National Health System’s holiday event and dished on details of her Christmas shopping after one of the patients quizzed her.
“Another President Christmas-present question,” the first lady responded while laughing. “All right, press, don’t tell him. He’s going to get some workout stuff. It’s not going to be very interesting this year, honey. Sorry.”
Hoping for a more-inspired gift, Obama asked the child what they thought the president should get; and the patient responded with the most practical answer. Ties.
“More ties?” Obama laughed again. “Ties for you, babe.”
Now that one member of the First Family is out the way, the first lady can focus on daughters Sasha and Malia, but they won’t be too hard to shop for.
FLOTUS also reveled that her daughters want cash for Christmas, along with their must-have holiday dish; mac and cheese!
“It will be some version of [money],” Obama said when one kid told her he wanted money. “They don’t want me to waste my energy picking out stuff they don’t want. So they’d rather just have the money.”
And of course the first lady couldn’t forget the furry family members, Bo and Sunny, who she said get tong of toys and treats – even if they are naughty sometimes. She admitted to the all-too-relateble problem of Sunny pooping in the white house.
“They get lots of new toys and treats. They get presents every year,” she said. “They were very nice [this year]. They have been very good dogs. I mean, Sunny sometimes can be naughty.
“Because you know what she does sometimes? She leaves the kitchen and she’ll sneak, and she’ll go poop on the other end of the White House,” she said laughing.
But, not to worry. The first lady said the family is working on that problem!
