What you can learn from the first daughters’ bond.
Over the past eight years, we have watched Sasha and Malia Obama grow up before our eyes. And while we honor their beauty and fashion, very rarely do we honor their bond with one another. Here are eight times that they made me wish I had a sister. By Kellee Terrell (Photo: Theo Wargo/WireImage)
Let Me Tell You About My Best Friend
Being siblings doesn’t always mean being friends. But this isn’t the case with the Obama girls. They recently joined their parents for three-day visit to Cuba, where they got chummy under an umbrella at the airport. (Their ‘fits slayed, too!) (Photo: Carlos Barria/Reuters)
When You Finally Meet Fantasy Bae
Imagine finally meeting your crush, but imagine that crush being Ryan Reynolds! Malia, 17, saw her sis Sasha, 14, talking to The Deadpool star and gave girl the thumbs up! If that’s not sweet, we don’t know what else is. (Photo: Official White House Photo by Pete Souza)
Who Else You Gonna Mean Mug With?
Posing together is key. So whether it’s at the prom or during POTUS inauguration, you need an iPhone to do what sisters do best: Mean mug for a selfie.
When You Both Are Not Here for It
When you have to be at that useless meeting or numbing press event with your father, it’s always good to have someone by your side who is just as over it as you are. (Photo: Kevin Mazur/WireImage)
Partners in Crime

Making Each Other Laugh
Yes, there will be fights and bouts of jealousy — that’s a given. But one of the best parts of sisterhood is being able to make each other laugh. That right there is one of the best feelings in the world. (Photo: Olivier Douliery- Pool/Getty Images)
Yeah, you can always stunt with your girls at the club — and that’s cute too. But nothing beats stunting with your sister and showing the world that being fly runs in the family. (Photo: Saul Loeb/AFP/Getty Images)
Your Date for Family Functions
When you are the youngest person at the cookout — or after your Dad is voted in as president for the first time — it’s always good to have your sis be your date and by your side the whole night. (Photo: Win McNamee/Getty Images)

When you are taking a girls trip or rocking in Air Force One, whatever destination you are heading to, it’s always good to have sis around to be your travel buddy. (Photo: Jewel Samad/AFP/GettyImages)
Sharing the Memories
Sisterhood is an amazing thing. Trust, you will get on each other’s nerves, but you will also grow up together, learn to appreciate each other and share a lifetime of memories and inside jokes that no one else will ever get. So cherish those moments. (Photo: Scott Olson/Getty Images)
