They grow up so fast…

President Obama got emotional about Malia Obama heading to college next year while visiting a college in Michigan.

“Just yesterday, Malia started her first day of senior year. You know, I was sitting in her room because I was going to see her off her first day of school. She puts her head on my shoulder and she says, ‘Daddy, you know, you realize this is probably going to be the last time that you ever send me off for my first day of school.”

He said that him and the First Lady aren’t exactly ready for this transition.

“And I started – I had to look away. I didn’t want to just be such a crybaby. It makes no sense. Michelle and I are way too young to have daughters who are both almost in college now. So as a parent, I was a little freaked out.”


Malia hasn’t decided on a school yet but she has been touring colleges all over the country where she may pursue television or film making. Malia already has  experience under her belt from her internship on the set of ‘Girls’ this summer.
