Officially old

Well, it's official.

José won some money this week and wanted to spend a chunk of it on the girls, so I took them all over to the mall after school yesterday.

Someone (probably Alex) had the sense to impose a "no toys" rule, so he got them shoes, clothes and some music CDs they wanted.

Alex put on one of the CDs for them while we had breakfast this morning, and by the time the corn flakes were gone, he and I were in complete agreement:

The stuff kids call music these days? It's just a bunch of noise.

Wait till your my age. You know your really not that far away. Now when you know every word to every song on the oldies station then you know that you are getting old. Well take a look at the groups I liked "back in the day" Heart, Ann Wilson is looking old. Stevie Nicks, Well really old. The Eagles look like they need walkers. The rest either look really old or are dead. So welcome to middle age, almost. Remember the music has not change you have.

Have a nice day. :-)

So what was the music? I didn't think they had any musical awareness yet. Other than, I mean, kiddie stuff.

Well, they and their friends are all into High School Musical which is actually a perfectly nice movie. They have the DVD and the soundtrack already, so they asked José to buy them the soundtrack to HSM2, as well as solo albums by two of the stars.

The one we had on at breakfast was Vanessa Hudgens' album.

Oh, and I'm new at this Old Fogey business. I'm allowed to make a blanket judgment based on one disagreeable song, right?

Wait. Do we still call them albums?
