Soren [contemplative]: "Mom, what Backyardigan song can I sing on American Idol?"

Mom [amused]: "You're trying out for American Idol?"

Soren [serious]: "Yes.  But I'm not going to be crazy."

Anders [concerned]: "Mom, I don't want to go to Hell.  It make me bleed."

Mom [chuckling]: "Me neither."

Anders [whispering]: "You help me get to Heaven?"

Funny stories. We love the Backyardigans. I need to be better at writing down funny things my kids say.
