15 Things Michelle Obama Does That We Love But Sasha And Malia Probably Don't

If you ask us, Michelle Obama can do no wrong. Whether she's debuting another fabulous hairdo, wowing us with her keen sense of style or turning up on late night television, Michelle is more than just the first lady -- she's the first lady of cool.

But as anyone who has ever heard the words "YOUR MOM IS SO COOL" will tell you, things seem a teeny bit different when it's your own mom. Even though we have no idea how Sasha and Malia actually feel about all the (wonderful) things their mom does, if being pre-teen and teenage girls has taught us anything, it's that you "don't want anything to do" with your parents during that time.

Having said that, while we know the girls love spending time with their mom, we think it's safe to assume they aren't as tickled with, say, her hilarious Vines as we are. In honor of our favorite first lady's 51st birthday, here are all the things we love about Michelle that may embarrass Sasha and Malia.

1. Kissing Barack.

2. Doting on Barack.

3. Dancing. Like, all the time.
