They grow up so fast!
However, the mere sight of a university hit home for the leader of the free world.
In case you didn’t know, the 54-year-old’s daughter Malia Obama is 17 and recently started her first day of senior year.
Which means in just 365 days, the Girls-intern will leave the nest and attend college!
The Prez recounts:
“Just yesterday, Malia started her first day of senior year. You know, I was sitting in her room because I was going to see her off her first day of school├óΓé¼┬ª She puts her head on my shoulder and she says, ‘Daddy, you know, you realize this is probably going to be the last time that you ever send me off for my first day of school.'”
Proving he’s just like every other parent in the world, Obama totally lost it!
“And I started ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ I had to look away. I didn’t want to just be such a crybaby. It makes no sense. Michelle and I are way too young to have daughters who are both almost in college now. So as a parent, I was a little freaked out.”
Awww! It’s okay! We can totally relate to your worries!
While the teenager’s first choice of school is unknown, she has been touring the campuses of several elite institutes such as Harvard, Tufts, Yale, and Stanford where she may pursue studies in television production or filmmaking.
It’s always tough when your chicks fly the coup!
