It’s a good thing she’s world famous because a US press blackout has been declared for the private European vacation of World Famous Fashion Icon and Busy Mom™ Michelle Obama. Not to worry – the UK and French papers are full of pictures and breathless details. Here, for instance, is a photo of the first lady and her daughter taking a stroll on the Costa del Sol in Marbella, Spain.
Hmmm. I see MOO but I don’t see her daughter. I see her oversized Jackie O shades ( not TOO obvious, honey) and her half-toga daubed with Shinola but I don’t see her daughter. I even see her special white nose stripe that she wears for photo ops and public appearances. But where is her daughter?
Oh! There she is!
See her there decked out in the blue striped casing? She’s about two tiers behind her mother. I believe in giving credit where credit is due and I must say that MOO is just like the rest of us – multi-tasking, combining her world famous fashion icon status with busy momming even while she’s on a private vacation with 59 other people.
One time I took my daughter on a trip with me to Connecticut and we stayed at a Marriott, which was lacking in gangster or reality TV people presence. So, I too have had my moments of busy-momming. No one would ever mistake me for a fashion icon but I WAS wearing stockings for the public appearance portion of that trip, so there’s that. We had a fabulous time and while I was going about my business, she ordered room service oatmeal with apple slices. I paid for the oatmeal myself.
