My Not-So-Ordinary Family

This is sponsored content from BlogHer and ABC's No Ordinary Family.

This season ABC is coming out with a new family-friendly show featuring an ordinary family with some extraordinary powers. Titled No Ordinary Family, the show stars Michael Chiklis and Julie Benz as married couple Jim and Stephanie Powell, who take a vacation with their two kids to the Amazon -- and return with some amazing superpowers. Jim finds he has gained super strength, Stephanie has super speed, daughter Daphne has clairvoyant powers and son JJ has super intelligence.


I suppose, if you like super speed and strength and all that, the Powells sound pretty impressive.

Until you check out my family.We look like a normal, ordinary suburban family. But we've got superpowers like you can't believe.

My son can duplicate himself.
Oh hang on, I actually have two sons who look exactly alike. They've got the power to make mud and grass stains and holes and tears magically appear on their clothes and shoes. They've also got the power to drive me absolutely crazy. And 3Po swears the wart on his leg can do addition and subtraction.

My daughter has a similar power (no, not the mathematical wart). She has the power to make messes appear around the house, seconds after she has cleared them up. Her specialty is paper and glitter messes that leave minute particles behind no matter how often I vacuum them.

My husband, Alfie, is a master of disguise. He can pose as a nerdy engineer, devoted dad, soccer fanatic, or motorcycle dude and no one would know it was the same guy. Need proof?
He can transform into famous celebrities.

Or into your worst nightmare.

Or something even more horrifying.

Americans think he's English, the English think he's Australian, and Australians have no idea where on earth he comes from. How's that for a super chameleon? Oh, and he can unclog any toilet in the world. And he's a super husband to boot.

I haven't forgotten about myself. I've got powers too. I can whip up dinner in 10 minutes with just a can of beans and strawberry jello. I can avoid doing laundry for 10 days and still find clean clothes for everyone to wear. But my greatest power is my Super Vision: I can look at my ordinary family and see the most extraordinary, amazing, lovable people in the entire universe.
