1) Her daughters
After a long battle with infertility and a difficult pregnancy she gave both to her fraternal twin daughters Barbara and Jenna in 1981. Her oldest daughter Barbara, attended Yale University Barbara is the CEO and Co-Founder of Global Health Corps a non-profit. The youngest Bush daughter, Jenna Bush Hager, followed in Laura’s footsteps and attended the University of Texas where she was a legacy member of Kappa Alpha Theta earning a degree in English. Jenna wrote a book about her experience with UNICEF and married her husband, Henry Hager, in 2008 they have two daughters Margaret and Poppy. Laura recently said in an interview, “I would say to treasure every moment of being a mother and being with your children, because they grow up so fast. And before you know it, they’re 33.”
Laura has a Bachelors from Southern Methodist University in Elementary Education and a Masters Degree in Library Science from the University of Texas. She taught as a second grade teacher for two years and worked as a school librarian up until her marriage where she then left to work on her husbands campaign. I personally cannot think of anyone better educating the youth of America!
3) She is down to earth
During parties at the Governor’s Mansion her favorite place was in the backyard with her dogs, she loved cheap mexican food, would shop at Wal-Mart and fly Southwest all while her husband was Governor of Texas. Obviously once she became First Lady many of these things had to change for security reasons but she still as First Lady she stated how she found interviews boring and did not fuss with the fashion and clothes that came with her new position.
4) She has a strong marriage
