One of my favorite memories with maw. I was n the hospital n labor with kaizly on day 2 of labor and they wouldn’t let me have anything to eat r drink because i was n labor just ice chips. Everyone walked out mom told maw to watch me make sure everything was ok. My mouth was soooooo dry horrible cotton mouth. I said maw u see that container of ice chips pour me some water please. She did I drank so much of that water. Few minutes later mom comes back n the room and I start vomiting and mom said to maw u gave her water didn’t u she said well yeah she asked for some. Mom was so mad. I would still say maw remember that one time when u got n trouble for giving me water. Maw would do anything we asked of her.
