When Michelle Obama called herself `busy single mother`

Washington: First lady Michelle Obama mistakenly called herself a “busy single mother” in an interview with CBS affiliate WCAX on Thursday.

Discussing the struggle many parents face in balancing work and home life, she said, “Believe me, as a busy single mother...or, I shouldn’t say ‘single’ - as a busy mother.”

She seemed to catch her mistake almost immediately, saying that when a person has got a husband who’s a President, it can feel a little single, CBS News reported.

She said that as a busy working mom, and before coming to the White House, she was in that position as well - working, driving kids to practice and not having enough time to shop or cook and not having the required energy to do so.
