This a week or two old, but the Obamas made time recently to attend the parent-teacher conferences for their daughters. Love the fact that they went, obviously. Why wouldn't they, right? Not like they're busy or anything.

Laughing thinking about the actual conference:

"Well, mom and dad, your daughter has been fairly tired in class. Last week, she apparently was on national TV at midnight or something. Maybe we could work on those bedtimes a bit. And while her state geography has improved dramatically, she tells me she can't do any more oral reports without a teleprompter and that I should check with her press people for the proper spin on the next report card. I'm not sure where she is getting these ideas. Your attention to these matters will be appreciated."

Here's to a president with school-aged kids (and all the time challenges that go along with same). Should be interesting to watch how a 21st century president and First Lady handle the school apsects of their new life.
