President Obama mother-in-law likes WH life

President Barack Obama's mother-in-law lived her whole life in Chicago, so it was only natural that her move to the White House came with some resistance. Try it for three months, her son-in-law says the family suggested.
A year later, it seems Marian Robinson is here to stay.
She spends a lot of time looking after granddaughters Sasha, 8, and Malia, 11, but has been carving out a new life for herself, too. In the words of the president, she's become "quite the lady about town."
"She wasn't entirely kicking and screaming, but it was clear that her preference would be to remain in her old life, and that this new White House, all this stuff, she could just hear about," the first lady said.
"So I'm happy that she's really settled in and feels like this is home for her, as well," Mrs. Obama said.
She attends many White House functions, including musical events in the East Room - such as a celebration last week of music of the civil rights era - the yearly Easter Egg Roll and November's black-tie, state dinner for India's prime minister.
