The Kids Have Discovered ABBA

Thanks to a friend lending us the execrable "Mamma Mia," both of the kids now like ABBA. A lot. It's debatable whether this music is preferable to the usual children's music, but for now I suppose the novelty is appealing. I explained to Z. that ABBA was around when I was a kid, but when she asked if I listened to it I had to explain that, 30 years ago, ABBA was not yet kids music. Nor were the Beatles. But now both, among other boomer and slightly post-boomer faves, are perfectly palatable for the knee-high set. I suppose it does broaden the options, even if a steady diet of ABBA for breakfast provides questionable sustenance.
