The musical mood from the other day continued, so I started to mess with some Christmas songs. This one is a work at home rewrite of The 12 Days of Christmas… but you probably guessed that from the title.

On the first day of working at home, my true love said to me
Honey, how I hope it’s not a scam.
On the second day of working at home, my children said to me
Mommy, whatcha doing?
12 Days of Working at HomeOn the third day of working at home, my dear friend said to me
It won’t work.
On the fourth day of working at home, my computer showed to me
Four infected emails.
On the fifth day of working at home, my parents said to me
Get a real job!
On the sixth day of working at home, my family gave to me
Six loads of laundry.
On the seventh day of working at home, my boss emailed to me
Seven urgent projects.
On the eighth day of working at home, my dear friends said to me
Can’t you work later?
On the ninth day of working at home, my calendar showed to me
Nine looming deadlines.
On the tenth day of working at home, my clients said to me
Great job and thank you.
On the eleventh day of working at home, my children said to me
Mommy, we’re glad you’re home.
On the twelfth day of working at home, my true love said to me
Wow, you made this work.

I do need to add a disclaimer, which is that my family and friends have been way more supportive than the fictional folk in this song. Thanks, everyone! Still a lot of work at home parents experience these problems.
