Forget all that blather about how much kids cost to raise. Start thinking about it the other way. The time to start making money off the little nits is NOW!

Starting with this year's taxes. Turbo Tax, the popular tax time software, is sponsoring America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Deduction.

All you have to do is send in a photo of your newborn baby (born between 12/01/07 and 12/31/07) and hope he or she is as adorable as you think she is. The winner will receive the title of America's Cutest Last-Minute Tax Reduction and a $5,000 U.S. Savings Bond (and perhaps the launch of a lucrative modeling career.)

You're not sleeping these days anyway, are you? Get the camera and start snapping away. The contest started Dec. 17 and runs through Jan. 9, 2008.
