I was one of ten grandkids on the Craig side, my moms side. My Papa Craig had a saying…
When ever us grandkids looked cute, did well in school or a sport basically displayed any positive attribute he would say, “There is a lot of Craig in that kid.” I remember that as if I can almost hear him say it. My mom and I still often repeat that saying so of course when I look and watch my girls I think, “there is a lot of Craig in that kid!”
Another Craig kid, my cousin Cliff, was quite the character as a child. WILD with a ton of personality. One of the things I remember was a phase where he would want to wear several layers of clothing at a time. The other day Ava went into the bottom drawer of her dresser where I had put a stack of new spring and summer clothes and insisted that she were three new shirts over her pajamas. Just like Cliff… although I am hoping that it does not become an everyday event it brought on a childhood flashback of endearing memories….
There is a lot of Craig in that kid!!!
