Watching Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs with your three-year-old may seem like a good idea at the time. You both love the 1978 classic book and it's on Netflix Instant Watch.
It's even a pretty cute movie overall.... but, there is a scene where the little boy main character, who is in love with all things science and inventing, gets a handmade scientist coat from his mother as a surprise.... your child will take a cue from said movie, because after all, you're his mom and you sew, and assume this is a rite of passage for all young, imaginative, science-minded males...
...and so you'll spend a large chunk of your Tuesday trying to create your own version of the scientist coat.
Even if you really have no idea how to make a tiny scientist coat. At all.
I've already re-done the sleeves because they were too short the first time.
Ok, enough stalling, back to work. I've got a tiny mad scientist to outfit here.
