First Lady Michelle Obama made a guest appearance on Tuesday (Sept. 13), on The Ellen DeGeneres Show to discuss what, or who, her family will miss the most.

“It’s really the people. Think about it,” she said, “the girls have grown up in the White House. I mean, the staff that’s there, we see them every day. These people who have helped us raise our kids. They’ve loved us. They’ve taken care of us. The minute we leave, that’s it.”

Mrs. Obama also added that she believes her girls, Sasha and Malia, will have a hard time adjusting to life outside the historical building. “They think they’re ready, but when you’ve grown up in a place…I mean, imagine, they won’t be able to knock on a door and say, ‘Can I see my room?’ That’s not gonna happen,” she said. “We’re trying to have them step back and really appreciate the walk on the South Lawn, sitting on the Truman Balcony. I mean, we just want to keep creating some memories for them as well.”
