I *heart* this video. Very eloquent.
I’ve been so mad about the chat between Rosie O’Donnell and Chelsea Handler (who?) that I’ve had to take a while to think of a response… it’s still making my blood boil. Well, how to go about reinforcing stereotypes and prejudices surrounding people with dwarfism in one conversation hey?! … actually watch this and find […]
I found this inspiring article written by Michelle Harris on the Guardian website today and wanted to share it with you dear readers. Wonderfully written, it tells the journey of Michelle and early motherhood. Being a woman, I could completely identify with her worries, concerns and fears about bearing a child and how we would […]
I’ve blogged about this before, but I am always apprehensive when I go to the petrol station to fill up the car. On more than one occasion I have been either stopped or had an issue with pressing the pump. Thankfully it doesn’t happen so often these days, but if you are like me – […]
I’m a bit late on picking this one up and I don’t want to get into the racism row regarding Kelis at the airport. I was, however, mystified (and somewhat alarmed as to) why the performer would use the the offensive word ‘midget’ (the equivalent of the ‘N’ word to people with restricted growth), […]

Over the last month, I’ve laughed, cried and at times felt uncomfortable as Jasmine and her Mum, Bev have allowed us a glimpse into their world. Bev provides a wonderful lightness to the somewhat heavy subjects handled throughout the documentary series. Remembered my own shock of failing my first driving test after always seeming to […]
< rant > Excuse me?!? I’ve been analysing the keywords readers are using to find HelloLittleLady.com. I was aghast at seeing the phrase above. How disgusting, how bigoted, narrow minded can one particular searcher be?!? Not happy with the fact that this person’s son has found love, they are actively looking for ways to sabotage […]
Goodness it’s been a while again. What can I say it, it’s been a very eventful 6 months so far and I wish I could I tell you it’s all been positive that’s kept me away from the keyboard. So far it’s been a year with 3 funerals, job interviews and planning a wedding, along […]
Was taking a look over at the Restricted Growth Association website and found this informative video about restricted growth by NHS Choices. Dr Will Christian talks about what restricted growth/dwarfism is and provides advice on how to access medical services and how you can help your child.
