    My Husband let my kids use the camera (my nice one...) at my daughter's soccer game while I wasn't there. There are (I promise I'm not exaggerating) 324 pictures from that game. A handful of them are not of the sky/grass/cleats/people we don't even know. Awesome. :dizzy

    Wait. After selecting all of them to delete, there were 365. Even BETTER! :) What a couple of turkeys!

    Oh that is funny!!

    I have occasionally been known to give my boys my little point and shoot to carry around and take pictures. They LOVE to take pictures of their toys. And it breaks their hearts if I delete them LOL

    I actually did a layout a few years ago with the pictures my kids took with my camera! Of course - I also deleted about 90 of the 100 pictures they took in a matter of 10 minutes... LOL

    We have an old digital camera that my daughter loves to use. She actually takes some decent pictures!

    I have often relied on giving my youngest the camera at my oldest's sporting events to get him to stop crawling all over me and so I can take some of my own pictures! It's always interesting to see what they think is picture worthy. :) It's funny too, I've trained them so well that the first thing they do is put on the wrist or neck strap. :)

    I probably would have died right there on the spot after giving my husband a good talking to LOL. Of course, my kids know that if they even think of touching my camera things wouldn't be so good for them. Now, I do have an old digital camera that my oldest daughter loves to use and it has kinda become hers and she can use it whenever she wants but nobody touches mommy's big girl camera.

    My girls (I think it was the oldest) got a hold of my camera a few years back and when I was going through the pics I found a nice one of a turd floating in the toilet. GROSS! But their perspective makes me laugh. :)

    I think it's a great idea to give an old camera to your child. Didn't even think of that and I do have an old one kicking around that I think I'll hand over to Meagan. When I purchased my Nikon I threatened my partner's well stuff if he ever laid a finger on my camera lol. I've let him take some pics with it while I'm with him but they are always about trees or the sky from 50 miles away! It's hard to tell the poor thing mmmmm I don't wanna keep the pics. Always feel like a meenie :s

    OMG. That is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!

    My daughter has one of those vtech kid cameras and while it takes super crappy pictures, she still loves it - however, we had to make some very strict rules about its use when she first got it after she took pictures of my DH sitting on the crapper. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA
