Boomer Phelps Just Understands

Michael Phelps has 28 Olympic medals, 23 of which are gold. And now, a new (smaller) Phelps has joined in on the swimmer's spotlight, his three-month-old son, Boomer. Boomer Phelps has been on the world's radar not just because he's the son of the most decorated Olympian of all time, but also because he's downright adorable in his soundproof headphones, patriotic pants, and chubby cheeks. Boomer is a golden baby and has been front and center during these 2016 Olympic games in Rio to watch his "Superman" dad dominate the playing field his fifth time around.

Phelps finished off his record-breaking swimming career with a gold medal in the 4 x 100 medley on Saturday, August 13, and his fiancée Nicole, mom, and baby boy were in the stands for this historic last race. Although Boomer may not know much about Olympic glory just yet, he's become quite the famous fellow himself. His face, that has been circulating the internet and stealing our hearts, says it all. And he may just understand each and every one of us—take a look:

When you can’t come to terms with what you've just eaten and start questioning every life choice you've ever made:

When you get home from a long day and your bed feels like Heaven:

When you're feelin' yourself and don't care who knows it:

When the person you're with won't stop taking selfies:

When you just got away with something super sneaky:

When you're tired but still want to hold bae's hand:

When you remember that really important thing you were supposed to do but didn't do and it might come back to bite you in the butt:

When you realize you match the carpet:

When your song comes on and you're loving life and no one can bring you down:

When your friends force you out of the house and you're nothing but a big ball of resentment:

When you wake up from that "5-minute nap" that lasted too long and you've never felt more lost:

When you're just happy to be alive (those pants though):

When you realize you have grade-A genes:

I remember how exciting summer was when I was a kid. I would just be eagerly waiting for school to end so that I could fly to some exotic location with my family for the summer. Or hang out with my friends every day. Or just lay around in bed or read, paint, draw, basically do whatever.

Soccer, Spain and Racism
