While walking through the toy aisle the other day something hit me. My son is 15 years old. He doesn’t play with toys anymore. Stopping in the middle of the aisle, I thought to myself “What do I do now?”
For all of these years I’ve been buying him toys. Granted the toys have been age appropriate, but they have been toys nonetheless. What in the world do you buy a 15 year old? Electronics and games are always the top choice, but he’s got plenty of those already.
Cologne. Why not? A 15 year old wants to smell good for the ladies, right? He’ll love it! Right? I hope so, because I’ll be wrapping it soon.
Speaking of wrapping presents, do you even put presents under the tree for a 15 year old? When do you stop putting presents under the tree? When they move out? Without a child in the house we would have no presents under the tree, so I have no clue how that works.
I suppose no matter how old we are, we still enjoy unwrapping presents. Anyway, this whole growing older thing has got me stumped.
An electric razor. That’s what he got last year for his peach fuzz. Great idea, Grandpa. But, he likes his peach fuzz believing that it makes him look more manly, so he hasn’t even opened the box. He’s decided to grow those little hairs out. The manly look will go well with the cologne, I suppose.
Peach fuzz, cologne and electric razors. How do kids grow up so fast?
What else do you get a 15 year old? Buying toys was so much easier.
