The Baby or the Tiger?

We all read The Lady or the Tiger in English class, right?

So our interest has been piqued by the trendy, tiny, sleek new Flip mino HD camera. It's something that my dear Love has been really wanting *someday.* As it happens, he has a nice friend at work who recently got one for a safari to Africa. He recently returned from his three week adventure with lots of praise for this little high-def camcorder! He was so nice to offer to let Matt borrow it overnight, just to see if we like it so that we know...for that elusive *someday* when we might get one ourselves.

Well...short story even shorter...

The camera that survived three weeks in the wilds of Africa did not survive one night with our crawling baby who destroyed it in three seconds flat.

Or, more positively... we loved it so much that we bought Matt's friend's broken one and we're buying him a brand new camera!

Oh. My. Word. I'm so sorry to hear that!!! Good thing kids are so cute... oy. Was it just the USB plug-in that she broke, or was there something deeper at work? (or rather, non-work?)

LOVE YOU!!! *hugs*

It was the USB plug-in...it was plugged into the side of the computer and she pulled it towards her making a very nicely cracked and bent USB plug in.

Bless her little heart. :)

Wow. Kiddo did that with the USB receiver for our (then-brand-new) wireless keyboard & mouse, too... *sigh* Our sympathies... and hugs to the girls! :-)

oh hahahahahhaa I'm always shocked when I see my name in caps in the comments. I always think I'm on the wrong page or something! Hello my sweet friend! Yes, I am catching up again and leaving 80 comments in one night :). I just love this time of night after Dan and the baby are in bed. It's my moment of silence :). AND the only time I can get anything done. Making a trip to Utah anytime soon???? It would be so fun to get together someday :)
