First Lady Michelle Obama is featured on the cover of the May collector’s  issue of Good Housekeeping magazine. In the issue, Michelle confesses that she and her family miss “the little nothings in life that we don’t do anymore: Running an errand. Walking into your kid’s school without causing a fuss. Going out to dinner without a press pool.”


Here are other highlights from the interview:

On how Malia,11, and Sasha,8, feel about all the attention:

“Our girls are pretty modest types, and they don’t like the attention, the hoopla. They will say things like, “Ugh, Dad, do you have to drive around with the sirens in the car? Do you have to block up all the traffic?”

On how she worries about her daughters:

“It’s just that the constant worry still exists when you’re a mom that the decisions you make in your life are negatively impacting your kids,” she says. “I want to make sure that the girls are doing well, and that they feel like they have the love and attention they deserve from their parents, regardless of what positions we hold.”

On how President Obama helps her through the stress:

“His temperament for the stressful part of the job is amazing,” she says. “When I’m getting antsy and frustrated and tense, I just say, ‘Talk me through it. Tell me why this is okay.’ He’s incredibly even-keeled, and he’s always been good at understanding the bottom line of what’s important.”

On her fears for her husband:

“You don’t even start walking down this path if fear is the guide. If any fears that I had were that great, I wouldn’t have supported his run in the first place. So once you cross that bridge, you make the decision that the journey is worth all the sacrifices. I have contemplated every single sacrifice that could potentially come, and we’ve decided that the impact hat his holding this position can have in this nation and around the world is critical. And valuable. And so I don’t worry. At all.”
