US-based mom Sara Visingard  could not resist sharing this hilarious video of her 12-year-old daughter Mackenzie's impersonation of a work-from-home mom. 

The video shows Mackenzie using a banana for a phone, while wildly motioning for her 'kids' to shush, as she maintains a perfectly calm phone voice.  

"My 12-year-old mocking me (and every single mom who has worked during the Covid-19 pandemic)," Visingard captioned the viral post. 

And from the reaction in the comments, the video couldn't be more true to life. 

"Every Day!!! And after almost 11 months [working from home] they still don't get it!!!" Commented one mom, while a dad thought the performance was "Pure gold!"
