My digital camera broke- should I take back the older boys' Wii for Christmas so I can take pics of my babys' 1st Christmas?! I'm stuck between a rock and a hard place! The older boys have lots of nice stuff for presents already. Just out of extra spending money now.

I feel bad having to contemplate doing this, but I want pics of my babys' first Christmas. I will ask my grandmother tomorrow if I can borrow her camera. I'm not even sure how good hers is and what make and model.

  • Awww, that sucks but I wouldn't return the other presents. I would just get a cheap 35mm camera for now or buy one of the disposable ones if your grandmother can't lend you hers.

  • I would just buy a disposable one for now. I wouldnt be fair to take back their present. I hope your grandmother will let you use hers.

  • I definately think that you would regret taking the wii back! Just pick up a disposable camera!

  • I agree with the pp, go get yourself a cheap disposable one and them after christmas you can get a new one. I wouldnt think that is fair to take your childs gift back, its not their fault the camera broke.

  • There are some amazing deals for cheap digital cameras out there right now. I got one for my friend that was rated the best buy for cameras under $150 by -- I found it at B&H photo for a hair under $100 and bought a memory card - it was under 125 shipped, plus there is a rebate on the memory card...
