A really cool thing is watching Rocco start loving the same movies that Max did at his age. On the weekend, I hired out the Incredibles and he LOVED it. He gets obsessed with putting discs into the player. "I DO IT MUMMY!" He swapped them around and put the second disc in.

I had forgotten all about Boundin', my favourite short film of all time.

"Now sometimes you're up, and sometimes you're down,
When you find that you're down well just - look around!
You still gotta body, good legs and fine feet.
Get your head in the right place and hey -
You're complete."

I love how the most philosophical things are often the simplest.

The sight of Rocco and Max watching it together laughing and unwittingly learning about resilience was worth every penny of the $3.39 it cost me on iTunes.



  1. its our fave short film too.
    makes me cry every time with it's absolute magnificence.
    my favourite philosopher is Dr. Seuss.
    such a clever clever dude.

  2. I'd forgotten too - been a long time since my girls watched anything animated. It's the darndest things that resonate.

  3. Same here. It makes me cry ev-e-ry time. I see it. Every time. Love it.

  4. I really love the pixar shorts! they've made some magic stuff.

  5. I have ALWAYS loved Bound bound bound and rebound.

    The first time I saw it, I cried.

    So wonderful.

  6. I adore this - hubby sings this line to me when I'm struggling a bit :)

  7. I've never seen that one before! I love the Pixar shorts...

  8. Oh my word! I totally forgot about that one! Thank you for sharing!!!

  9. Thats on high rotation in our house too, it always turns around a cranky kid :)

  10. I need to pull that out to watch with my girls again :) Thank you for the reminder.
