Confession of a Desperate Mama

I listen to ABBA multiple times a day...every day...for the last week or two. I think my favorite song is "Lay All Your Love On Me." It's got a great beat. How did this come about, you ask? Well, I'll tell you. Finn has always liked music. One day he was tired, but having trouble falling asleep. He usually hates when you go near the computer while you're holding him, but I wanted to put some music on to help quiet him. So, trying to be quick about it, I open iTunes and pick something, anything, from the top of the list...ABBA...Greatest Hits. Two seconds of Dancing Queen and I had a quiet baby on my hands. Turns out...it wasn't a fluke...he LOVES ABBA. Usually, he's out with the first line of DQ, but if he's really fussy, we'll keep it playing and he is content. R was against the idea of our ABBA-lovin' baby boy...until he was a desperate Papa one night and now he, too, is a believer in the powers of Swedish 70's pop music. His favorite is "Take a Chance On Me." Go figure.
