Michelle Obama Thanks The Secret Service For Protecting Her Daughters (PHOTOS)

Posted: Updated:

President Obama often talks about how the Secret Service makes his daughters' lives unconventional but also very safe (and bad boy-free).

Today Michelle reiterated the sentiment in a formal address to the Secret Service, held at the government agency's headquarters in Washington D.C.

In her remarks the First Lady got personal, telling the Secret Service employees:

We love our detail. We love every individual who spends every minute of the day -- people always ask, what is it like to have Secret Service? It’s like -- for us, it’s like having family around. And it’s amazing how you all manage to do that by shifting people in and out. I was sharing with some of the staff that we have a fight among our family of who’s getting which people. (Laughter.) Sasha will come in, it’s like, "You took Scott!" (Laughter.) It’s like -- Malia’s like, "You took Scott? That’s not fair!" (Laughter.) And then I’ll say the same thing to Barack -- it’s like, "Why did you get Beth?" (Laughter.) It’s dinner table conversation.

These are so conversations we wish we could hear.

As for her sartorial statement, Mrs. Obama also struck a tone somewhere between serious and playful. Michelle paired wide-legged navy pants and a teal sweater with a flouncy, off-white dotted scarf and black pointed toe shoes.
