Happy Birthday, Mrs. President!

January 16, 2013

Hi from McPopper Children’s Hospital! It’s Lily at the computer, and I hope you’re all having a great day! Did you know that tomorrow is Michelle Obama’s birthday? Cherry-Ot told me that Michelle Obama (whose maiden name is Robinson) was born on January 17, 1964, in Chicago, Illinois. She lived in a one bedroom apartment with her parents and older brother, Craig. She then went on to graduate from Princeton and Harvard Law School, and while working at a law firm in Chicago, she was asked to mentor a new intern named Barak Obama…and the rest is history! They married on October 3, 1992, and they have two children, Malia and Sasha.

As the First Lady of the United States, Michelle Obama has worked hard to help military families, and she’s taught kids (like me) about the importance of exercising and eating healthy. Miss Soy is so glad! But what I think is most interesting about Michelle Obama is that even though she didn’t have a lot growing up, she worked as hard as she could in school and never let others keep her from achieving. She said that, “One of the lessons that I grew up with was to always stay true to yourself and never let what somebody else says distract you from your goals.” She’s so right! No matter what others may say or think, we all have the power to reach our goals and accomplish our dreams!

So Happy Birthday, Michelle Obama! We hope you have a critterrific day!
