Thom was obsessed with the original Mamma Mia from ages 2-5 and had Mamma Mia cakes for his fourth and sixth birthdays. It was his first Broadway show, and I’ve found his love for this musical to be especially endearing.
Vinnie saw the movie for the first time this winter, and I’d hoped she'd get to see the show in London this spring. Sadly, that didn’t work out, but she was still aptly prepared for the new installment.
We all liked the new movie, but I cried numerous times. Thom commented on our bike ride home that he thought Coco (the other movie we saw in the theater this year) was much sadder and warranted tears more than this movie. Touché, Thom.
