Michelle Obama Meets Big Bird on Sesame Street

Someone told the first lady how to get to Sesame Street! After making appearances everywhere from soup kitchens to military hospitals, Michelle Obama addressed a crowd at the US Mission to the United Nations in New York on Tuesday and talked about her biggest accomplishment since taking on her new role. She said:

I'm thrilled to be here, but I was just at Sesame Street — I'm sorry. And I never thought I'd be on Sesame Street with Elmo and Big Bird and I was thrilled. I'm still thrilled. I'm on a high. I think it's probably the best thing I've done so far in the White House. But we were there talking about nutrition and healthy eating, and it's just been a thrill.

It's clear that children are a priority for this mom of two. Mrs. Obama is the latest of a long line of celebrities who have made guest appearances on the beloved educational kiddie show.
