Your Child Could Be A Star!

No, I’m not turning Mama Rose on you; I don’t have any suggestions for the next American Baby Idol auditions.

But I do have a great holiday gift suggestion.  I promised you earlier you'd benefit from the fruits of my labor, and this one is a whopper.

My husband Brian’s a big astronomy buff; he’s already telling Madeleine about the telescope they’ll buy when she’s older, and all the stars she’ll see when we visit my grandparents’ farm.  If you’ve got a youngster (or a spouse for that matter!) who’s interested in space, this is the gift for them.

At International Star Registry, you can name an actual star.  This isn’t like real estate on the moon; it’s a legitimate site and your star’s name will be put in the books.  You’ll get a certificate of authenticity, a book giving you your star’s co-ordinates, and more.  It’s a great gift for someone who has everything, and a perfect present for the procrastinating shoppers out there!

Imagine, pointing up to the night sky one night, and saying, “That’s the Madeleine star, right there.”
