WASHINGTON (AP) — Michelle Obama is pushing back against the notion that she and President Barack Obama don't socialize enough in Washington.

In an interview in the April issue of Vogue, the first lady says she and the president were straightforward when they said before they moved to Washington in 2009 that their family, including two young daughters, would be their priority.

She said the stresses and the pressures of being in the White House are so real that when they have extra time they like to spend it with their girls, who are now 14 and 11.

The president joked in the interview that he and his wife might start hitting nightclubs now that their daughters are older and have less time for their parents.

Vogue's April issue hits newsstands March 26.
