Don't let the recession get in the way of turning your kid into a world traveler -- just use Photoshop!
Momlogic's Momstrosity: I would like to pass on my passion for travel to my child. If I had it my way, I'd want to traverse the entire world with my 3-year-old in tow. Problem is, there's no way I could afford it, and traveling with young kids is a huge hassle. So far, her vacations have consisted of camping locally. Not bad ... but I wish I could do more.
But would she even remember if I schlepped her to the ruins of Machu Picchu in Peru, or took her for a walk on the Great Wall of China? Probably not. Sure, we think we remember stuff we did from when we were little, but the fact is, most of our childhood memories are jogged by stories we hear from relatives and looking at pictures. Without a visual representation of our early experiences, I doubt we'd recall much about our preschool days.
That's where computer graphics come in! With a little know-how, you can easily produce an entire scrapbook of memories for your kid -- without spending a cent. It's really easy. Check out all the places I haven't taken my daughter -- and the best part is? She'll never be the wiser.
