Who has time for zippers?!

I am a boy mom. I do not own a lamp. no, seriously. We have ceiling fans in basically every room. My bedroom is very dark, but I do not own a lamp. Why? It wouldn't survive in my house. My middle son had a Pottery Barn Batman night light. Did you notice that was in the past tense? Yeah, he broke it. How? Don't know, don't care. The boys are always hot anyways, so we do ceiling fans- no lamps. 

I never have enough food in the house. I shop for food almost every day, and I simply cannot keep up. They eat breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, snack snack, dinner, snack. It's unreal. I try to keep 'healthy snacks' stocked, but honestly- it's not possible. Even the two year old just helps himself to things in the pantry... I have had to rearrange what items are in his reach. I once found him eating a package of Oreos, at 6 am, in the pantry. Go ahead, judge me. Do you have three boys??? If you are judging me, you clearly do not. I took a video, posted it on Instagram... because that's what you're supposed to do in that situation.

I don't understand the families who look all put together, dressed in today's stylish clothing trends. My youngest walks around in hand me downs, circa 2008 from his older brother. Skinny pants weren't a 'thing' back then, so he rocks baggy pants. Name brands? No, I have no idea what brand they are. The free kind? Yeah, that's what he wears. My oldest basically just wears Minecraft t-shirts and 'comfy shorts', which is what he calls shorts that do not have a zipper or buttons on them. Who has time for zippers? He gets the new clothes, because he wouldn't fit in his dad's clothes :)

I am a boy mom. I love them fiercely. They drive me crazy, but I couldn't possibly love them any more!
