The best company I worked for(they went out of business) had a number of little people working for them. We were all great friends.

@mousiegirl  I went to high school with a little person but she was in a wheelchair. She was a couple of grades ahead of me and a neighbor of a close friend. Boy that seems like a long time ago lol.

I enjoy watching this show much more than I do the other show about Little People.

 

The teenage daughter (Elisabeth) is beautiful.  She's really amazing!

 

Did you see the show recently (I think I saw it yesterday or this weekend) where they had (at Christmas) a meeting of Little People from all over the US?

 

It was so interesting that there are so many Little People with varying disabilities.

 

I think shows like this help educate people.  I honestly believe the more people are educated (about everything), they are less likely to show bigotry and (hopefully) will be less ignorant toward others.

@Annabellethecat  Have you seen what a talented artist Elizabeth is? I'm not sure how long you've watched the show but she even had her own art show and sold her art. She's really good.

@Annabellethecat   Matt and Amy did this in the beginning.  They got the ball rolling regarding showing how little people really live.

This program is getting boring.  It seems they are trying hard for story lines.  


I think life in most people's homes are boring.  I know no one would tune in to watch my life.

 

Little people or average size people are the same.  Size doesn't matter.  People are people.

 

I don't understand why TLC has reality TV shows about  little people.  I think the Johnston's are more about how a blended family work things out.  They are a normal American family who have a few special needs adopted children. 

 

I worked with a guy who had 14 special needs children, all adopted or fostered.  He was really laid back and his wife was home all day.  I wondered if she was sane after all of that.  She bore the brunt of the work.  Several of the children were physically as well as mentally handicapped. I don't know how they did it.

I had to laugh towards the end of the show when Amber said about   her husnand...he might think here wears the pants in the house....but  i pick them out!

 

Maybe that might be cause for some of his anxiety!

 

Previews showed him in hospital w/IV  and in pain.

 

i have a feeling..she doesn't believe him..and shugs it off...sad!

Always be thankful and you'll have than more than you know.
