President Barack Obama is not looking forward to his daughters heading off to college, lamenting at an event on Wednesday that they are growing up too fast.

“Just yesterday, Malia started her first day of senior year. You know, I was sitting in her room because I was going to see her off her first day of school. She puts her head on my shoulder and she says, ‘Daddy, you know, you realize this is probably going to be the last time that you ever send me off for my first day of school,’” Obama told the audience.

“I had to look away. I didn’t want to just be such a crybaby. It makes no sense. Michelle and I are way too young to have daughters who are both almost in college now. So as a parent, I was a little freaked out,” he said, pretending to wipe away a tear.
