We will always consider Michelle Obama our forever-mum-in-chief. She has for a long time been a source of inspiration, encouragement and a little bit of tough love. She has been teaching her two daughters – Malia and Natasha to be determined, focused and empowered – very much like the woman she herself has become to mothers and women all across the globe.
She also raised a very valid educational point, one that sadly concerns many children and young adults these days, namely the topic of handling bullies. The politician and mentor famously quotes:” When someone is cruel or acts like a bully, you don’t stoop to their level. No, our motto is, when they go low, we go high.”
Michelle also often and fondly speaks of the partnership that she has with her partner Barack, the former president of the United States. She calls him her best friend and tries to teach her daughters the importance of nurturing friendships. She famously said once: “You have to fill your bucket with positive energy — and if you have people hanging around you that are bringing you down and not lifting you up, whether that’s your ‘boo’ or your best friend — you have to learn how to push these people to the side.”.
Aside of being a source of maternal wisdom, we also happen to have a little mum crush on Michelle’s enviable wardrobe and those famously lean and toned arms of hers, which is why she skyrocketed to the position of our celebrity mum crush of the week. Do you agree?
