Robinson lived at the White House with her daughter during her son-in-law's tenure as president.
'She had a stream of people. Grandma's room was like the confessional, ' Michelle recalled.
To which her mom had a one word response, "Yeah".
Fans loved the mother and daughter exchange. When the kids were still little and they needed to have someone be with them in school.
'Well, Mom would ride in the auto with her to make it feel like a regular carpool'.
