Little Mama

I just watched a video on MSN.com about a woman who is 28 inches tall and gave birth to a baby. Isn't that like a snake shedding its skin?

I don't know which is worse....that it happened, or that you watched a video about it.

I am a bit concerned that you actually WATCHED something like that as well.

Come on guys. They didn’t show the actual delivery; no cooter shots. She may have had it cesarean for all I know.

The documentary showed just her in her motorized wheelchair scooting around her house. It did show her belly before the baby was born. It stuck out farther than her legs. She has some disease that deformed her legs and stunted her growth, and she passed it on to her baby. But she is only 28” tall. The baby couldn’t have been much shorter. It just struck me that it was like a snake shedding it skin. I mean, the baby is almost as big as she is.

And no, wdf, it isn't snowing here. I just spend way too much time on the computer. I do exercise, though. I look up exercise videos and watch them.

I went to highschool with Gloria..who wasn't much different in height. Then some years later I read that she was in the circus and gave birth to a normal sized baby.

I wondered where in the world that baby grew.

Sounds like the Inquirer or something.

Strange but strangely interesting.

why did she have a kid if she was going to pass on her disease to it? I guess she has a right to have kids but in a way it seems unfair.

and yea I see what you mean about a snake shedding its skin.

She was advised not to have children, as it could have killed her, not to mention passing the disease on....
Personally, I think she did it just to get in the Guiness Book.

Pamela, from the video, her stomach set between her legs like a watermelon.

Special K, she did pass the disease onto her baby. Her husband is also studying for the ministry. Praise the Lord.

How do you have sex with a 28" tall woman?

grizzbabe, I guess you just hang her on a doorknob and go at it. I guess you just put her on top and pump her up and down like an inverted milk churn.
