On Saturday, Harry and I went to the Badger game. We stayed until just before half time, and then headed over to the bookstore, Library Mall and the Memorial Union. We had a great time and enjoyed Babcock Hall ice cream. But, I'm slightly concerned.

He observed the boy cheerleaders throwing the girls in the air, and of course thought that was cool. He also liked the action on the field. The following ensued:

Cindy: So, do you want to be a boy cheerleader or a football player?
Harry: Mom, I'll just be the boss.
Cindy: The boss of the football team?
Harry: No, the boss of this whole place.

Sigh. Teen years are going to be fun. So, let's look at this picture from the first day of school.

A book

When I was a little girl, I had a Little Golden Book titled Where did the baby go? I loved this book - it seemed so clever. This sweet girl, that I thought looked just like me, found a baby picture and was curious as to where the baby went. Of course, the baby was her. I pose the same question to you, based on the images below.

I know. And she walks around calling herself 'Sup-ah Suze'. It's hard to explain to her that with the hat, we should really be calling her Huggy Bear, but soon enough, soon enough. And, if we're being honest here (isn't everyone honest on the internet?) I really don't want that strange young man below calling her Huggy Bear.

I mean, just kill me dead with the cute, right?
