New Delhi, Mar 19 (ANI): Former first lady Michelle Obama is finally opening up about the time she spent in the White House. In the latest episode on American television host Conan O'Brien's podcast titled 'Conan O'Brien Needs a Friend,' Michelle shared anecdotes from eight long years she spent in the White House. Sharing some details about her struggles as a parent living in the White House, the Becoming author told O'Brien, "We had to parent by creating this cocoon of normalcy in a pretty crazy, abnormal world. We spent eight years just going, 'It's OK! You'll be fine, this is normal, just go to school. You have men with guns...hey, you know, you're safe, don't complain! You have food, so don't complain to me.'" Appreciating her daughters for smoothly managing their time in the White house, Michelle said, "I am in awe of my children for the way they have managed this whole thing with poise and grace. There's a resilience that they've had to develop."
