Parker was complaining about his mouth hurting, and so Thomas, being a fabulous future physician, asked him good questions to determine the problem. I thought he'd hurt his lip when Evan kicked him in the mouth when Parker was climbing up the slide when Evan was going down it. That wasn't the problem... it was Parker's throat. Thomas got the tongue depressor and flashlight, and looked in Parker's mouth. Poor kid's tonsils were so swollen, and his lymph nodes were full of lovely white lymph. At least we know his immune system was working! He didn't have any other symptoms, but we still kept him home until his throat cleared up... which it did on its own in a few days.
Evan thought the flashlight were super cool, so he decided to check Mommy and Mommy's baby.

Mommy, say "Ah!"
