When Obama was elected to office in 2008, the Bush twins wrote a letter to Obama’s daughters to walk them through the difficult transition they would face living at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. Eight years later, the Bush twins penned another letter to guide them through the awkward transition of living a civilian life once again.

The new letter, which has been published in Time magazine, shows Barbara and Jenna Bush sharing some essential information that will help ease the transition of moving out of the White House.
The twins wrote, “In eight years, you have done so much. Seen so much.” They noted the outstanding people they had the privilege of meeting such as Nelson Mandela, who they met in the cell that he inhabited for decades. “We have watched you grow from girls to impressive young women with grace and ease. And through it all you had each other. Just like we did.”
They added: “Now you are about to join another rarified club, one of former First-Children — a position you didn’t seek and one with no guidelines. But you have so much to look forward to. You will be writing the story of your lives, beyond the shadow of your famous parents, yet you will always carry with you the experiences of the past eight years.”
The Bush twins also gave some invaluable information to Sasha and Malia. They assured them that there is much to look forward to as they leave the place they called home for the past eight years, but told them to keep their experiences close to their hearts as few have ever experienced what the 44th president’s children did.
The twins encouraged Sasha and Malia to stay modest and always remember the little people that helped make your life what it was while you lived in the prestigious White Hosue.
“Our greeter as 7-year-olds at our grandfather’s inauguration was Nancy, the White House florist, who ushered us in from the cold. She helped us make colorful bouquets of winter flowers for our grandparents’ bedside,” the Bush sisters write. “Twenty years later, Nancy did the flowers for Jenna’s wedding. Cherish your own Nancy.”
