Little People Big Wallet

Every once in a while I tune in to watch "Little People Big World" on the Discovery Channel. Amy Roloff says in the intro. that they just want to have the same life everyone else does. I don't buy that for a second.

Each episode has the family either doing major remodels to their home or taking some kind of exotic trip. NO ONE else I know has the luxury of living in such a fashion, and don't tell me they're rich because of selling step stools to hotels and pumpkins. There is nothing normal about these folks, and I'm not talking about dwarfism.

They seem to be sending out the wrong message. I'd much rather watch what happens in the lives of real people with real challenges.
