Watching your kid go away the nest and cross off to University is tricky for any dad or mum, together with Barack Obama. The former US president has printed that he cried when dropped his eldest daughter, Malia, off at Harvard University on her first day.
In a speech at the Beau Biden Foundation’s charity match for the Protection of Children in Delaware previous this week, Obama admitted that it was once a “rough” second.
“For those of us who have daughters, it just happens fast,” he mentioned. “I dropped off Malia at college, and I was saying to Joe and Jill [Biden] that it was a little bit like open-heart surgery.”
However, he did controlled to combat again the tears till he and spouse Michelle Obama left the University campus. “I was proud that I did not cry in front of her,” he added. “But on the way back, the secret service was looking straight ahead pretending they weren’t hearing me as I sniffled and blew my nose. It was rough.”
Aww, we simply wish to give him a large previous hug!
