Mrs. Obama said: “It still moves me to tears to think about the first day I put them in the car with their Secret Service agents on their first day of school and I saw them leaving and I thought, ‘What on Earth am I doing to these babies?’”

She added that she wanted to create the hectic environment of Washington as normal as possible to raise her two children inside the walls of America’s highest office.
