In the past, a trip with just my husband, almost always meant an ear infection days prior to our outbound flight. Nothing worse than aching ears during a flight.

“Mom and I pranked you, but we never realized it had to go this far where you would be learning and probably ‘breaking’ your phone” we apologized.
