Have you taken pics of your kids in the bathtub?

I was reading this article about a couple in Arizona whose children got taken off of them for a month last November b/c they took pics of their kids in the tub and the employee at Walmart who developed the pics called the cops, claiming sexual abuse. The couple are currently suing the state of Arizona and walmart. I have taken pics of my boys in the tub, but make sure the bubbles cover their penises.
Here's the article:

  • I have taken pics of my kids in the tub, or on the rare backyard garden streak...I also develop my pics at home, so I am not worried about an overly sensitive employee. I don't see anything wrong with bare bottom pics, I think too many of us fear pedophiles, and the poss of someone thinking that we ourselves may have pedophilic tendancies. They are just little babies, and toddlers...and I think the paranoia is bleeding into mass perception. I don't put my naked baby pics up in the house, or on the net...but they are in an album, one for each of my children. I would hate for them to grow up and see nothing in the baby book but sterile, formal photographs. There are messy faces, bare butts, dog kisses right on the mouth, I even took one of my Daughter drinking out of the hose...she lived...I want them to see how varied and colorful their own childhood is turning out to be.

  • I have, I put up bath pictures of my DD on MySpace and they were removed! LOL But I didn't think anything of it, my thought was, "Oh, her first bath in the bathtub.. awww." But some people don't think of it that way. I think this whole fiasco is ridiculous, though.

  • I had taken several pics of my son running around naked but he had his hand over his penis or just his butt was showing and people flipped out on me.
