Photographing my kids

I am happiest when I am photographing my children. My husband often askes me to "put the camera down and enjoy the kids." He just doesn't understand that this IS how I enjoy my kids. My thinking is that if there isn't a photograph to document the event, did the event really happen? I'm only 38 and love to find an old picture from an event I'd forgotten about. If a picture hadn't been taken, I would have probably never gotten to relive the memory. There may be a day when I can't remember all of the wonderful things I am lucky enough to do with my kids now, but a photograph may be the difference between a wonderful memory and "Huh, why didn't we ever do that?"
