In a visit to The Late Show with David Letterman Monday, First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama discussed her relationship with her own parents.
An emotional Michelle, who considers herself the mother of Sasha and Malia above everything else, said her parents instilled in her the values she passes on.
They provided "absolute, complete, unconditional love ... the notion that kids really don't need anything but to know that their parents adore them."
She said she and the president have passed that trait onto their children: "Don't make me cry: This isn't Oprah!” she said. “It's supposed to be Letterman!"
Michelle Obama also discussed her recent incognito trip to Target, which was figured out when a woman asked her to help reach something on a high shelf.
The 48-year-old, who stands 5'10", said after she obliged, the grateful woman joked with her, "You didn't have to make it look so easy!"
"That was my interaction, and it felt so good!" she said.
