Obamas girls chores havent changed with White House moveFebruary 22nd, 2009 - 1:34 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Feb 22 (ANI): As Michelle Obama takes on the role of first lady, she has vowed she will do everything to keep life normal for her family.
For first parents keeping the family grounded is a tough task, considering the comforts that come along as consolation prize for being the US leader.
In the White House, there is a movie theatre, a bowling alley, a horseshoe pit, a swimming pool, five full-time chefs and dozens of household staff members ready to dish up ice cream at all times, report the New York Times.
However, in the Obama White House, everything is as normal as it is in a regular household.
Bedtime is still at 8 p.m. The girls still set their own alarm clocks and get themselves up for school in the morning. They make their own beds and clean their own rooms.
That was the first thing I said to some of the staff when I did my visit, Mrs. Obama said in an interview with ABC News, describing her talks with White House employees.
President and his wife limit television, but do not restrict viewing to the Discovery Channel.
According to friends and relatives, the Obamas want their little girls to continue to feel like little girls. (ANI)
