Colleen Chulis recently shared a video on LinkedIn of her daughter Adelle, who is eight years old, picturing her mother as she does her demanding sales job from home while also caring for her young children.
“Last night, my daughter, who is eight years old, approached me and requested if she may impersonate me as i wasn’t quite sure what to anticipate,” she said.
In the video, Adelle acts as if she is on a business call while sitting at her mother’s desk, and she then acts as though her children are “interrupting” her.
Adelle immediately goes into “mom mode,” at which point she snaps her fingers at her children and tells them to go get dressed upstairs, all the while maintaining her composure and being polite to the person she is speaking with on the phone.
Colleen commented on the video, which has since been seen more more than 9.8 million times, saying, “I felt many of you may connect (and giggle) with the snapping and the multi-tasking.”
As a result of the epidemic, a significant number of women are now working from the comfort of their own homes.
This has not been a simple transition for moms, who must now balance the demands of their careers with those of their families.
Colleen also has a son named Luke who is 10 years old, and another son named Declan who is 6 years old.
