In her video parody of the hit Katy Perry song, “This is How We Do,” blogger Brenna Jennings transforms the pop song into an anthem of mom solidarity. 

“I belong to a really amazing group of women in real life, and in my blogging life online. There is so much press given to ‘Mommy Wars,’ and that hasn’t been my experience. I love these women, and we’ve supported each other through a lot,” Jennings told TODAY Parents.

Jennings says the idea for "This Is How We Do — For Moms" struck her after her daughter played the video of the original song – which focuses on the partying lifestyle of kid-free young people – over and over, non-stop. Her neighborhood mom friends were all eager to help her revamp it.

The video features scenes of Jennings and her friends balancing work, life, and child-rearing, and includes scenes of a frazzled mom accidentally putting laundry into the pot with dinner and a mini-van-driving mom showing off her talent of kicking the door closed with her hands full of grocery bags.

Because, you know, this is how moms do.

Jennings' favorite scene? A clip of her and a group of other neighborhood moms at a soccer game, cheering for their kids.

“This summer, we lost a young friend to breast cancer. Every woman in the soccer game scene rallied to shore up that family, and we still do. Motherhood is really a community, and I am humbled by the women who’ve chosen to give me their friendship,” she said.
