MY MOM IS COOL
And I'm sure yours is too! All moms are cool. But what made my mom extra cooler (for me that is) is the photo below. Nope, she didn't do the laces. I did. Hehe...
My mom just recently arrived from Saudi Arabia. She works there as a midwife and has been "pulling" babies for more than 30 years already. Now, if that's not one reason for her to be cool then I don't know what else will. By the way, me and my siblings were all born there. That explains me being named Paul Riyadh. I was born in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. My brothers were kinda lucky because they were named "properly." As for me, I guess my mom was still high with meds when she thought of my name and maybe she was so in love with the place she was in during that time that's why she named it after me. So in love that until now she still works there. Riyadh.
And another one! My first Double Uppers!
Ever since I asked her to bring me Chuck Taylors (Hi-Tops particularly) every time she comes home, she never fails to always always surprise me. Even though that I have my own company now (plus sponsor), she still buys me a pair or two (redundant lang) kahit di na ako nagpapabili. Good thing Saudi has designs which our country doesn't have. But still, I love my mom for the effort. And the designs? Cool no?
This month we are celebrating Mother's Day! It should be Mother's Day Every Day (just like Valentine's and World Peace! lol) But for this year, why don't we make it Mother's Month? The month started with Labor's Day anyway. Moms = Pregnant = Labor. Gets? Haha.
Going back on why mom is cool, she gave me these shoes as pasalubong (despite my age).

Speaking of cool moms, here's a couple I slightly/personally know who are waaaayyy beyond cool!
JP Singson's mom who was recently featured on Stylebible.ph!
And Chuvaness / Cecile Van Straten who just had her birthday recently! Here's an entry on her blog which I find very endearing and nostalgic at the same time because I and my brother also did the same thing back when birthday cards and letters on papers were hip. Her kids' letters (and the drawings!) were enough testament that she is really a cool mom! I like her.
PS: I'm dedicating this post to all blogger moms out there. Juggling motherhood (and a whole lot of other things!) plus blogging is not an easy feat. Thumbs up to you cool moms!
