Pricey Cameras + Curious kiddies. A bad combination!

This is a topic for parents with little kids.

Because let's face it, many of us began to get really serious about photography when our first born entered the world.

I am curious to know if there are any stories, wether they are positive, close-alls, or horror stories, involving your little one(s) and your camera gear.

Toddlers can be very curious. I have a broken PS3 to prove it (popped in a toy where the discs insert). Apart from that, I've been extremely fortunate that my three little ones have shown great respect towards my gear and despite the scratched up hard wood floors, banged up (and coloured on) walls, and my wife's three pair of broken eye glasses, my gear has so far remained untouched. After everything they've destroyed, it's quite miraculous that they've never laid a finger on a lens or camera body. Maybe it's from the snarly growls that I've made in the past when their little, tempted fingers have come within inches of reach of my gear.

Share your stories!

I think that if you have kids around you need to accept broken things.

Either that or anything you want to keep pristine gets hidden or locked away safe.
