A new camera, for Mariann

As I said last week, my camera is of to repair. Oh, we miss it already.

Last night, for fun, I sat Merrick on Mariann's rocking chair. I thought she'd say "Oh, how funny" or "it's MY chair!!" at worst. But no.

She said "Photo!" and ran off to the living room.

Is this a typical 2½ behaviour? Or I'm totally responsible for that?

Since last time, she used the camera again and again. Which made me think of buying her a real camera for herself. I first looked at the toyish one. Ew. I feel she'd get tired pretty quickly of a huge, plastic camera that takes bad pictures. And I don't want to get more plastic in this house.

So I've bid on a used Nikon, I'll have to find a battery charger and a cable for it. I might just as well buy a new one if I loose this bid. I'm not buying the brand new thing, as it's going to a 2½ yr old, but I want her to truly learn and enjoy taking pictures.

  1. Haha Tyr loves taking pictures! So much so that when I'd upload pictures there would be a ton that I never took. To this day he still loves taking pictures and having his picture taken. We didn't do the toy cameras either. When we got our new camera, we just gave him our old one since it still worked (and he knew how to use it lol).


Thanks for commenting!
