“She’s taught me so much over the years, and I feel so lucky that I get to pass that same wisdom down to my own girls. To all the moms celebrating today, I hope you know how much you’re appreciated.”

In previous occasions, Michelle has discussed the importance of her relationship with her mother and how much she’s learned from her. “The mother that I am today is a direct result of Marian Robinson,” she said at The United States of Women Summit, in a chat with Tracee Ellis Roth.

“My mom is one of the smartest people with just plain old common sense. The thing she always said that I do remember is that, she told me and my brother, ‘I wasn’t raising children. I was raising adults.’”

Michelle Obama’s experiences with motherhood

Over the course of Michelle Obama’s career in office, she has addressed various topics, including motherhood. She’s shared keen insights on the process of raising her daughters Sasha and Malia, and the lessons she learned from her own mother and incorporated into her every day life.

“Being a mother has been a master class in letting go. Try as we might, there’s only so much we can control,” she said to Glamour Magazine. “And, boy, have I tried – especially at first. As mothers, we just don’t want anything or anyone to hurt our babies. But life has other plans. Bruised knees, bumpy roads and broken hearts are part of the deal. What’s both humbled and heartened me is seeing the resiliency of my daughters.”
