Introducing the AbiMiEl conference

January 13th, 2006 · 2 Comments

Our daughters now “play conference”. Sure, sometimes they “play house”, with the traditional roles of Mommy, Daddy and Baby. But often I’ve caught them taking turns giving pretend presentations and passing the “microphone” between them. I suppose it’s a sign of our family adventures in the past year, an indication of our vacations and the places our kids have been, from Northern Voice to Gnomedex to Mind Camp. “Now I’m going to be giving a talk on…” one of them will start, speaking into her fist that functions as a microphone for the moment. The other two listen, smile and giggle from the audience, sitting in the auditorium of our living room floor.

They’ve even come up with a name for their conference: AbiMiEl, borrowing from the first letters of each of their names. I wonder whether Abigail, Michaela and Elisabeth will invite Ted and me to talk. Or rather, I think the two of us should show up and listen.

    Possible sessions?

    “How to double your allowance in 30 days”
    “Favorite places to hide green beans”
    “Chores – how to delegate effectively”
    “Swimming after eating – facts, mysteries and myths revealed!”

    AbiMiEl sounds like the name of a biblical angel.
