She used to be a cute little tomboy!


Now she’s all grown up!   Ahhhh!


Could it be that Dora’s journey into puberty mirrors my son’s own developments as he embarks on becoming a young man?  Dora is fourteen, two years older than my son.  She’s no longer thinking abou the map, but about boys.  She’s no longer worried about Swiper the Fox, but about boys.  And Boots is no longer her best bud!  It’s BOYS!!!!!!!!!!

Okay, deep breath.  My son is still a little kid.  Still interested in Animal Crossing and Pokemon.  I got a bit more time.  A year?  Maybe two?
