“What’s important to know is that your parents got here because they worked hard,” the first lady said. “They worked hard when they were your age. And I tell my kids this all the time: If you want to work in a place like the White House, no matter what you do, now is the time that you have to start thinking about working hard in school.”
One child asked Mrs. Obama “what will happen if something bad happened to a country.”
“Well, first of all I’d wake my husband up if it were at night,” she responded, prompting laughter. “And I’d tell him, hey, buddy, you’re the president, get down to the Oval Office and call some leaders.”
Asked about the much-obsessed over first dog, Bo, the first lady called him “crazy.”
“He loves to chew on people’s feet,” she said.
Another student asked what Mrs. Obama likes to do in her free time. She said that she doesn’t have much free time, and that she is spending a lot of time taking care of the puppy and going to her kids’ games.
She does, however, occasionally “sneak out” for a little fun, she said.
“Every now and then I have this thing that I like to do with some of my staff members, and we sneak out, without telling anybody, and we go and test out all the fun places to eat in D.C. — like I went to Five Guys and nobody knew it,” she said, prompting laughs from the children. “It was good.”
