Okay so I am a stay at home mom to an almost 15 month old son. I have a polaroid point and shoot camera that takes about 10 seconds to snap a picture so it's really slow at capturing anything my son does and most of the pictures turn out blurry. I really want a camera that can catch any moment or thing my son is doing,I feel like I am missing out alot as it is. Anyways I want a camera that I know will be quick enough to capture anything my son does and a point and shoot isn't it. Problem is this camera with the package is abou $620,which includes the camera,a bag and an extra lens(which the lens alone cost $200,and I think it's a good deal). It is $480 at another store with the camera,a 2GB memory card and the bag. Has no lens to zoom in at things etc. Problem is my hubby thinks we can get it at this store when we dont even have the stores card so idk how we will pay $480 in cash.
I really want this camera,mainly because I want to upgrade from the one I have now and so I don't miss out so much on what my son does.
I feel embarassed and a bad person that I even want this thing. It feels like I am just here to serve and I am not allowed to have nice things. Do any of you moms feel bad about wanting something thats really nice?
