Nick Avallone is a 20-year-old student from Pennsylvania who loves his mom Eleanor "beyond words." That's why, when he was staying at home over the summer, he would regularly bring her a snack at night when she asked for one (because everyone knows bedtime is prime snack hour!).

But by the time Avallone would get to his mom's room bearing pretzels or Goldfish crackers, she was asleep. So he coined the term "mom-shaming" and made a Tumblr about it.

In her defense, whatever is in that cup looks kinda disappointing.

“I adore my mom beyond words but I have to mom-shame her for always doing this to me,” he wrote.

Here are more pics of her sleeping through various snacks.

The post went viral, receiving over 32,000 notes on Tumblr so far and 21,000 likes on Instagram. Luckily, Eleanor was a good sport about it. Avallone told Buzzfeed News that when he told his mom she had become an internet sensation and showed her the photos, she said: “I thought it was funny and that it would make other people laugh."

This is exactly what you would expect from a mom so chill she can fall asleep even when she knows snacks are coming.
