Are the Obama girls being raised by a nanny and a Granny, just like Chelsea Clinton?
There is an interesting New York Times article describing how Marion Robinson, Michelle's mother, is supposed to be helping raise the kids in the White House, but is so busy with her new social life that they are hiring a babysitter for the kids.
It's looks like Ma and Pa Obama are getting out a wee bit too much.
"...In fact, Mrs. Robinson, 71, is so busy these days that the Obamas hired a baby sitter to watch their two daughters one evening because the nation’s first grandmother had plans.
“She has a very full social life, so much so that sometimes we have to plan our schedule around her schedule,” Mrs. Obama said jokingly last week during a lunch she hosted for Congressional spouses."
