Michelle Obama transformed from stately queen to dancing partner for one adorable toddler living her best life.
Two-year-old Parker Curry took the internet by storm last week after a photo of her standing awestruck in front of Michelle Obama’s portrait went viral.
The toddler, who told her mother Jessica Curry she thought the former first lady was a queen, had a chance to boogie with the former first lady after Obama invited the pair to her office in Washington DC.
Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)! Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you! pic.twitter.com/faUVTsYWun

Obama shared a heartwarming clip of the two dancing to Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off,” and wrote, “Parker, I’m so glad I had the chance to meet you today (and for the dance party)!”
She added, “Keep on dreaming big for yourself…and maybe one day I’ll proudly look up at a portrait of you!”
The video sent social media into a meltdown, and Chelsea Clinton called it “pure magic” while another Twitter user chimed in and wrote, “THIS WORLD NEEDS MORE WOMEN LIKE MICHELLE OBAMA.”
Jessica Curry appeared on CNN on Tuesday night and told Don Lemon, “It was amazing. She’s really down to earth, really sweet. We had a good time talking to her.”
Ben Hines, a 37-year-old from North Carolina, was visiting the National Portrait Gallery with his mother on Thursday, when he snapped a photo of little Parker.
“We were delighted to wait in line behind this fellow art lover & hopeful patriot,” Hines wrote in a Facebook post that has been shared more than 35,000 times in less than a week.
