Hager Bush revealed that they had shown Sasha and Malia how to slide down the banister and shared photo evidence of the girls learning to do it.

She had been teaching in Baltimore, and her mother, Laura Bush, had encouraged her to come back and show the Obama's around so they could be comfortable in their new space. Hager Bush shared:

"I drove from my job teaching in Baltimore to meet my mom and sister in DC to show the next residents of this house their new home."

Michelle shared that when her two daughters, who are now 19 and 22, saw Hager Bush's photos, it sparked a conversation about their first days at the White House over an entire dinner.

Michelle said that the Bush girls' tour made such a difference on her girls' whole experience of living and growing up in the White House.

Hager Bush was a teenager when her dad, George W, Bush became president. However, she was around Sasha and Malia's age with her grandfather, George Bush was president.

Although Sasha and Malia's childhood was mostly spent in the White House, Michelle tried her best to make sure they never resented it or their father's job.
