Bug juice, anyone?

Being the president's daughter and living in the White House doesn't make for a typical tween existence, but now Malia Obama is embarking on a most all-American summer experience: sleepaway camp.

In fact, President Obama tells NBC that Malia's camp plans are making it difficult for the family to plan a summer vacation.

"We're going to be trying to figure out where we're going to be able to take some time over the course of the summer," Obama says. "But a month of it's going to be taken up with Malia going away for camp, which she's never done before. And I may shed a tear."

In addition to heading off to camp, 12-year-old Malia is growing up in other ways: She has shot up to 5-foot-9 and is sporting a mouth full of metal.

"Even though she's 5'9", she's still my baby," Obama says. He also likes her new braces, he says, "because she was starting to look too old."
