Alice in Funder

We have a new addition to our family. No, not a dog or a cat. It's a superhero. And his name is...


Alice in Funder is created from Yaks' own imagination. He sports a superhero cape (thanks, Lindsey), and mis-matched arm floaties.

At the press of a superhero button, Yaks is transformed into the most helpful guy on the block! If Yaks happens to be grumpy, disagreeable or otherwise being UN-helpful, all I have to do is call aloud for Alice in Funder, and he suddenly appears with a smile to save the day!

Among his special powers:

-He can produce monsters, who spread out and do work with lightening speed, like pick up blocks strewn all about the house, or put back the couch cushions! (Names are susceptible to change, but Wolfie, Scary, Shadowee - he can go through windows, walls, kitchen cupboards- are a few of the constants)
-He can shoot water out of his feet, in case you don't have a sink or a hose. Handy.
-He can lift heavy objects with ease.
-He has an electric thing that comes out of his feet and arms to BAKE things! Can you tell we've been doing a bit of baking around here?
-He has special attachments that help to open things.
-The floaties are called "Lifter ones", which not only help to lift things, but also protect his arms (a double feature)

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go clean the house. "Alice in Funderrrrr!"

That is too cute!! I wish I had my very own Alice in Funder! I'd get a lot more done if I did!

That is a hoot! I could use Alice in Funder quite often. Does he make housecalls? I can't believe how grown up he is . . .

I love it! I wish my kids turned into superheroes.

this is my favorite post yet! I love little mr. yaks! And his floaties that give him super powers. Such a darling little boy. Makes me miss my little boys that are now so big! Oh and it has been so good to be back in touch with you to (to comment on your FB post)! You are an amazing mom and a great writer. I enjoy the little peaks in your life so much!
