We added a race track for Matchbox cars, replaced some of the picture books with the "Captain Underpants" series and brought in more advanced art supplies. We added maps so we can show him where people that we know are living, and a calendar to talk about passage of time. So far, so good.
Even Eric's taste in music has changed. Instead of isming only with his Disney collection CDs, he's branched out to Enya and Nickelback. He figured out how to get to movie trailers on iTunes when the computer is unlocked, but instead of exclusively Disney movies, he's looking at SpongeBob and SouthPark.
We think that he's ready to hear about more of the world outside the playroom. But where to start? What do 14-year old boys like? I'd love to hear your ideas in the comments.
