When Jin predicted the future...

Eloise, illustrated by Hilary Knight

Jin was going through his old papers and handed me this one he found in one of his piles. It was a newspaper clipping of an illustration of the Eloise who lives in the Plaza (illustrated by Hilary Knight). I laughed but then I noticed this piece of paper was pretty old and I asked him when he found this clipping.

"A few years ago. I thought it was cute and I saved it"

That means he saved this piece of paper before we knew we were expecting, before we decided on naming our little girl Eloise and before we knew about the Eloise books. Which makes this piece of paper more special to me than a regular old newspaper clipping.

Happy Friday! (And Happy Thanksgiving to us Canadians!)
