First Lady Michelle Obama slipped up in a local TV interview with WCAX-TV on Thursday.
Mrs. Obama told a reporter that she was "single mother", but quickly corrected herself.
In the interview Mrs. Obama said, ""Believe me, as a busy single mother– or, I shouldn't say single, as a busy mother. Sometimes, you know, when you've got a husband who is president, it can feel a little single. But he's there."
