I've probably had the dream of creating my own cookbook I would have to say at least.
Top twenty years thank you sound like takes over and other things happen.
So that feeling has always come in and out of my life.
Kids are getting older and -- nine.
I think I'm at a point where I can.
Make it happen.
I want to triple aside the -- form.
And convention and he's going to be that tough -- I'm gonna roll the dice man every single thing you know it's going to be on the table because -- this -- sinks and goes down.
The whole -- actually.
Finding a way to balance life with your family your dreams your work and wanting to make that life bigger they sound like familiar challenges and issues for all of us.
As Americans but what family is really showcasing them and they're showing us that no matter what your circumstances or what anybody -- your circumstances are.
You can take the bull by the horns they are the stars of TLC's little people big world their weapons now it's it's a pleasure to have.
Matt and Amy -- with us.
Good morning I think I think your message myself although I wanted to start there.
I just your message in this kind of a TV show is so much reality out there what did you -- -- get out that you think the world is missing hearing.
Well we really want to people -- -- little people are actually anybody would that looks a little different thing you do is actually.
Maybe more similar than many things you look at the same struggles and challenges and same desires and and -- happy in life and that's really been a huge response from the show really.
Is that they may have wanted to see this show is -- let's -- with the little people do.
But -- the similarities of our life compared there isn't like -- now -- just like -- -- in the same things with your kids in 2008.
Yeah I mean I I watched recently in your kids talk back to you.
He talks back to Amy -- and that doesn't sound like I'm okay yeah.
-- and then I realized you know -- win feels like I'm six foot two so I -- -- -- the other direct people look at -- they say what the heck are you invited -- look -- doesn't want to -- -- -- I probably shouldn't be there's no good reason but I mean -- it doesn't matter I accuser -- sometimes Smart and you're not a good way you know.
The other thing is to it lot of people ask the questions you know my kids are taller than went after second -- And so we have a different way daddy had to Colbert does Allen or gain that respect but it is also the norm.
Right hey it's kind of a balancing act aren't mean I can't tell my kids and just look and -- excuse me.
All right I have to ask you mad about the stream and the farm.
What is your dream what do you kind of everything -- like scared me well.
I think you really shocked -- they're not always taken bigger and better you know as you know I think it can only be happy with whoever so that's a lot of guys honest Campbell we have what was your goal would.
Well we've we've always had a nice -- but there's another -- right next to us and it's really close to our property lied -- we just I was trying to expand and we have a live and get more parking for our pumpkin.
Pickers and and grow more fruit fruit trees more -- anybody happen -- -- know.
-- you guys in the in the series right now I know it ran starting 2006 have you done consecutive seasons.
Yes yes a long time to be on television and then you know I.
Is this right they can love you but if you -- have ratings the networks don't keep you want why do you think people love your show so much.
I think I mean well.
My first -- of your own personal thing and we're real I mean.
I don't know if that's -- -- -- I wonder why people are still watching and I think it's just because word is sort of we.
You know we banner and we are you and we have the same ups and downs is a lot of people's stuff.
And then when people see us when we're not filming at what point does exist that can fire at the.
They don't like to -- -- -- you're gonna tune of forty appetite and yeah I mean -- that's a long time.
Until C starting in 2006.
That's a long time to be on television.
And that what do you guys do -- now.
-- -- -- -- Maybe you know my kids are growing up really Carla hall you.
In the crosses not finishing up a cookbook that's gonna get published in.
You know from my perspective of being a mom it's like I'm figuring out what -- -- you know.
Yeah I think it just right now we're doing these four episode featured than a perfect balance we've gotten back to you were still able to share her story with everybody out here for this morning -- -- This isn't great because you ran for those six to 2010 and now these four episodes are kind of away for everybody to kind of see the sequel of the Roloff family might not know you can't get it all the way -- -- little people big world is the name of the show just clean up with a little nugget of what's different or changed update well what.
Yeah would you know rove before -- in the Atlantic a couple episodes ago until we're still adjusting to life like that's our oldest child yes and -- -- right.
-- -- -- 21 and his brother is still at home eight big twins soon got together and you -- the home now but they're okay.
I guess my question my dad always wanted to know -- my sister how do you get them to leave now I love -- -- -- -- Secret crowd let out to have them all you know like -- Legacy and inheritance.
But to me but no they need to go and they wanna come back they can do that already so now I told my parents I wanted to go -- TV news and so -- they were trying to kick my sister out there were trying to keep me from coming back the house.
I think coming.
You pay their rent rebate there -- rumors and.
What do you love about coming back on and and giving us a glimpse a couple years later.
Well we we we -- quite been able to share our story and it's nice to be able to do amount of -- it.
That's really more better balance we're -- -- 48 episodes a year which is constant 27 almost like every week.
Billionaire like ten months of the year yeah yeah so now we're gonna import everything on the show that you -- food and we shouldn't -- all the time.
-- evidently did I really isn't it really.
I think the hardest thing about looking -- the episodes after they air is.
-- happened like months ago and we're reliving it black.
And I wonder about that because people think it's shot in real time.
But I know that on reality television sometimes -- -- one of the housewives because I live in Jersey how happy I can see many of them because we have a couple states near me -- housewives.
And you'll see they're working through an issue or was pregnant or something and then you see like -- kids walking.
-- they don't they don't shoot -- real time but they should've.
But still haven't earned the money -- and it.
A -- some of our episodes oh my god we just got done you know -- -- earth you know filming and sometimes it's months later.
Wow all right so tell me when we can watch and it's TLC Sunday things under the big big big update after -- -- -- -- time on the East Coast.
