Some Things They Did While I Was Vacationing Without Them: Visited the ER
Aleks apparently stuck rice in his ear to see how much wax would come out on it (it was an experiment, clearly). Jon thusly got his first solo trip to the Emergency Room with both kids in tow. I've never even taken both kids to the ER by myself. To countless doctor's appointments and other assorted emergencies, sure, but not the ER. Aleks' experiment obviously failed. He had to get both ears prodded, washed out, and then had to be watched at home for signs of infection. Fun stuff. I got this photo texted to me.
