One little slip of the tongue and everybody notices.
First lady Michelle Obama accidentally described herself as a "busy single mother" during a television interview on Thursday before quickly correcting her mistake and laughing off the gaffe.
"You know, when you've got the husband who's president, it can feel a little single -- but he's there," Mrs. Obama told a CBS station based in Vermont.
She then described herself as a "busy working mom."
Mrs. Obama has long discussed the challenges of working parents.
"Before coming to the White House, I was in that position," she confessed. "Working, driving kids to practice, not having enough time to shop or cook, not having the energy."
