Sasha and Malia's Big Week

Sasha and Malia Obama have a big week ahead of them!


Malia and Sasha’s Big Week

Quick takes on our favorite little ladies!

Sasha and Malia ObamaAs history is made today, there will be two little girls standing next to Barack Obama as he is sworn in to the Presidency. Our guess is there will be more than a few eyes on Malia and Sasha as well! Here’s a peek at the buzz about the first daughters …

Speech critiquers
While the world waits in anticipation for today’s inauguration speech, the ones whom Obama may have to impress the most are his tiniest critics, his daughters. Ten-year-old Malia, while reviewing previous Inaugural speeches, noticed that Lincoln’s second address from 1865 looked like a long speech. When Obama mentioned his might be a bit longer, Malia quipped to her dad that he better step his up because he is the “first African-American president” and that it “better be good.” Sounds like good advice!

Dreams do come true!
If it wasn’t enough that the girls have been promised a pup upon entering the White House, now they get a major concert too! Pop stars Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers performed at a children’s concert hosted by their mother and Jill Biden in honor of military families Monday night at the Verizon Center downtown Washington.

If you missed it, not to worry! The concert aired on the Disney Channel, so you can bet they’ll be replaying it, over and over and over again, much to the joy of my 9-year-old daughter! I know I’m burning up over the thought of it!

Mini style icons
While Sasha and Malia will be dressed to the nines for the swearing-in ceremony and all of the balls, as of writing this there’s no official word on what they will be wearing, but Celebrity Baby Blog has said that Bonpoint is in the running with “cotton satin frocks for the evening – in cream for Malia and anthracite gray for Sasha – embroidered with semi-precious stones at the neckline.” Sounds perfectly elegant for two perfectly, adorably elegant girls!

We wish the whole Obama family a blessed and beautiful week of making not only history, but wonderful memories. Thank you for taking on the task of residing over our country to get us back on track, keeping us safe, and uniting us all!

And, if I may, regarding those beautiful girls of yours – one word of parenting advice for this week of parties and balls and events – don’t let the girls have too much sugar and don’t let them stay up too late! It can wreak havoc on EVERYONE!

And I’m only offering this advice because, Mr. President and Mrs. First Lady, you have a HUGE job ahead of you!
