The new one-eyed monster

We've created a one-eyed monster. Although our intention to buy Faith a digital camera fizzled at Christmas, she's been bitten by the photography bug. She has always wanted to take pictures on Daddy's phone, so we thought it would be a good idea to get her an inexpensive digital camera for Christmas. Well, the Disney camera we saw advertised at the end of last year vanished from the shelves. We still haven't found a reasonably priced replacement. Two attempts to purchase cheaper cameras resulted in the discovery that there was no way to view the photographs, so we took them back. Faith is still waiting. A friend lent her a camera for our spring break excursion to Colorado. Before we left, Faith wanted us to pose several times and I feared we were venturing into our own private paparazzi problem. It turns out Faith took very few pictures on our trip. I do want to encourage her creativity and she has a good eye for framing. While we're hunting for a suitable camera for her, I suppose we'll keep finding those surprise snapshots of her baby dolls on our phones.
