And this is how it happened:
Getting Cohen out of bed is one of my favorite times of day because he is usually so happy and smiley and we play a little bit before he gets up, although this day he was a little cranky. He pulled the little lens cover and one of the little closers that covers the lens (all technical terms) off the front of the camera.
Thankfully, my sister in law Christine heard about my plight and is loaning me her old camera, which is nearly the same as mine but a little bit older. But, since it's so similar to mine, I already know how to use it! Thanks, Christine!
