Red Chief had oral surgery last week to have an extra tooth out. (The dentist called it a "supernumerary" tooth.)
We stocked up beforehand on soup, smoothie ingredients, and other soft foods he requested. I also collected some surprises for him to occupy his time in convalescence: Legos, movies, a stained-glass painting kit from the dollar store, the 2017 Farmer's Almanac.
The surgery went well. He was brave and is recovering nicely, but he's glad to have it behind him.
We're still having soft foods this week: smoothies, oatmeal, and other porridges for breakfast; soup, pasta, applesauce, and mashed potatoes for dinner. I don't love cooking two dinners, so I'm just trying to plan soft things that everyone can have.
