I agree. I would call it a weedy geranium.

I think that's Leonorus cardiaca/Motherwort.

It kinda reminded me of my baby hydrangea quercifolia:

But no, that's not it.

It does look like motherwort as seen in this pic (the first one): https://3herbmamas.wordpress.c...

The leaf shape varies as the plant grows. The database here doesn't have a picture of spring growth, such as this: https://www.minnesotawildflowe....
I'll try to remember to take a picture soon and submit it for future reference.
