Well, hello again! Hurricane Sandy got us down here at CafeMom, but not out!
We're back up and running and we're starting things off this week with more of Michelle Obama's answers to CafeMom members' questions!
Check them out after the jump, and tell us what you think in the comments!
When I saw it was you who will be our special guest tears welled up in my eyes and I had to stop to acknowledge and experience the emotions and let them overtake me. My reaction surprised me because I keep my feelings in check but I believe I was astounded, "Is it REALLY Michelle Obama, and am I this close to her?" It's as if we are in the same room and we almost are! I'm just someone who is watching this campaign and I'm experiencing this strong reaction, online! How do you live with the emotions?! Your emotions as a wife, your emotions as a mom, your emotions as FLOTUS hearing people tell you their stories and believing in you; the demands on your emotions must be unimaginable to the rest of us. From where do you get the strength? I'd be hospitalized by now if I had to juggle all the demands you experience on your body and mind in all your roles as the woman married to the POTUS.
If there's just one thing about or in the last four years you could change what would it be?
Do you have a best friend or close group of friends that you are able to spend time with and when you do get that time, what do you enjoy doing?
I'm a mom of 2 just like you except I have 2 boys. They are the loves of my life, as I'm sure your kids are to you. This is the first year I am able to actually vote in an election. I have registered but I'm not sure if I'm going to vote or not. If I were to vote I'm very undecided. That being said, if you could give a young family, just starting out, any advice what you say?
The Round Table asked:
Looking at the world through your eyes & through your daughters eyes. What are the difficult choices their generation of women will face as opposed to the ones of your own generation and how has your husbands 1st term impacted those choices.
My 8 year old son asked this question and he really wants to know! What is the one thing you would do differently if you were President of the United States of America?
Mrs. O. also posted a message about Hurricane Sandy for CafeMom members. Who knows? Maybe she'll become a regular contributor on the message boards!
What do you think of FLOTUS's answers?
Note: An invitation was extended to Ann Romney to join our community and respond to member questions. As of this posting, we have not received a response.
