Have you seen Monsters University yet!? James P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski were amazing motivators! Together they worked hard — passionately pursuing their goal! They set their eyes on what they wanted and although the path to get there changed, their willingness to work hard remained consistent! As I watched Monsters University I couldn’t help but imagine my two little boys in such a similar scenario — together!
Favorite Monsters University Quote
Big B and Baby B are the best of friends, but couldn’t be more different! When they were 4 and 5 (pictured below) they started playing baseball together for the first time with Daddy as coach. Of course you don’t keep score at this age – wink – but mommy was impressed! Ever since, we have played one up or one down so they can play together. They are a powerful force together!
Side Note: While on the topic of baseball, if you have little boys that love baseball (and a daddy that loves baseball), this has got to be the cutest Daddy gift EVER – definitely a collectible!
Now, 8 and 6, (pictured below) Big B plays pitcher and Baby B plays shortstop. I love that they spend hours in the backyard practicing pitching, hitting, and catching with a goal of playing baseball for Texas Tech University and then the Rangers. The discipline of these two little boys is so surprising to me, but they’re starting to see big payoffs — both were asked to be on All Star teams last summer — the cool uniforms and bat bag totally rocked their world!
Whether or not my boys grow up to be professional baseball players isn’t what makes this mommy proud. I love that they are using perseverance and partnership to work hard towards their goals and through it all I know that they will realize their talents — baseball or something entirely different! Monsters University has such a motivating message — team up with others pursuing similar goals and work hard together. James P. Sullivan and Mike Wazowski have become family favorites and we can’t wait until we own the Blu-ray, Monsters University! It will definitely be a Friday Favorite Flick!
