It turns out the president is a busy guy. So much so, that sometimes his wife forgets he exists!

In an interview with Burlington, Vt. CBS affiliate WCAX on Thursday, first lady Michelle Obama misspoke and called herself a "busy single mother" while discussing the challenges of getting your family to eat well amid the daily grind.

“Believe me, as a busy single mother -- or, I shouldn’t say single, as a busy mother. Sometimes, you know, when you’ve got a husband who is president, it can feel a little single. But he’s there,” FLOTUS said.

It's OK, Mrs. Obama, we got what you meant.

The first lady went on to say that as a busy working mom before her husband became president, "I was in that position as well. Working, driving kids to practice, not having enough time to shop or cook, not having the energy, you know, the resources weren’t the issue but time and energy is key."
