"They're terrific girls. They're poised and they're kind and they're curious. And like any mother, I am just hoping that I don't mess them up. That's all we're living to do. It's like, at the end of the day, I find myself checking with friends if they'd spent time — how did the girls seem? People who have known them — and they'll say, no, they're the same kids. They're the same girls. I was like, OK, good. And that's why the president and I are happy. Even when times are tough, in the end you are as happy as your least happy child. And when I'm not breathing, it has little to do with the issues — that's important, but when your kids are healthy, your dog is healthy, you find that you sleep a little bit better."
