Michelle Obama's fashion choices might be flawless, but the first lady isn't immune to an on-camera flub every now and again.

In an interview Thursday with a Burlington, Vt., TV station, she accidentally referred to herself as a "busy single mom," when talking about the work-life balance parents face.

"Believe me, as a busy single mother . . . or, I shouldn't say 'single' -- as a busy mother . . ." she said, correcting herself almost immediately.

"You know, when you've got the husband who's president, it can feel a little single, but he's there," Obama clarified as she made light of the error.

Critics may call it a Freudian slip, but I don't see this power couple splitting anytime soon.
