Watch Michelle Obama’s reaction to a kid who told her she was “too young for 51”

"You're too young for 51," a little girl visiting the White House Wednesday told First Lady Michelle Obama, after asking her how old she was.

Doing what anyone over the age of 28 would do at that point, the First Lady asked her young guest to repeat the observation — several times, and into a microphone — and then stretched out her arms in unbridled joy and invited the girl to the stage, where she was seated for a big hug.

CNN reports that the exchange happened during the White House's annual Take Our Daughters and Sons to Work Day, as Obama took questions from children of Executive Office employees and local kids.

Critics often try to say that Obama doesn't enjoy being first lady. In moments like these, that's hard to believe.
