For many parents, trying to keep a house full of kids tidy can feel utterly hopeless.
That's the idea behind the Holderness family's new music video, a parody of Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself" titled "Clean Yourself." In the rewritten song, dad Penn sings on behalf of his wife Kim, who is fed up with cleaning up after her family all day.
"If you like the way she cleans it up then maybe you should clean it up yourself!" he sings. Other standout lyrics include "You're adorable, I think we agree, but your room smells like six-day-old pee," and "Baby, I am gonna shout if I find a three-week-old banana in your backpack."
As mom Kim told The Huffington Post, "It's my fight...

To give a glimpse into the less-than-pleasant aspects of pregnancy, Danielle and her husband Jon created a new comedy video for the mom-centric YouTube channel Awestruck. Titled "Top 10 Things To Never Say To Your Pregnant Wife," the video offers some advice to parenting partners -- like, don't comment on your baby mama's appearance, don't tell her to stop moving around in bed, and don't talk about your own nausea and cravings.
Basically, don't do what the guy in this video...

Rose Byrne knows the challenges breastfeeding moms face in transit.
During an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert," the actress said she's been traveling a lot to promote her new film, "Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising" -- while also pumping breast milk for her 3-month-old son, Rocco.
At one TSA security checkpoint, Byrne's breast milk was subject to additional screening. "They wave this weird thing over the top of it and there's a whole production going on," she recalled. "They take it very seriously that it could be something."
In that moment at the airport, Byrne said she opted to "just stand there and smile and tell them that it's really breast milk and that it's nothing."
According to the TSA website, breast milk is exempt from the 3.4 ounce requirements but may be subject to testing by X-ray or other measures at airport security. Parents are also instructed to declare these liquids to TSA.
The actress didn't mention if the TSA seized the breast milk (as happened with Alyssa Milano at Heathrow Airport) or simply returned it to her after the screening, but Byrne joked that perhaps she could've helped reassure them of the safety of the milk by flashing her lactating breasts.
During the interview, the new mom also talked about some of the other common struggles of raising an infant. "It takes a long time to leave the house -- maybe an hour, hour 45 minutes just to get out the door," she said. "To do anything, you have to bring so many things with you ... Then when you get out, he just throws up everywhere or takes a big poop and you've got to go back inside again."
And as for sleep, she says she and her partner Bobby Cannavale aren't getting too much of it.
"Who needs sleep?" she joked. "Just roll on coffee and love."

That's how mom and YouTube personality Kristina Kuzmic begins her latest viral video rant. Titled "I'm not your friend, kid! (Because I love you.)," the video shows Kuzmic eating ice cream while explaining why parents should not strive to be "buddies" with their kids.
"My number one job as their parent is to love them, and loving them does not mean making sure they're always happy and get every single little thing they want," she says, noting that loving her kids actually means "raising them into healthy, decent human beings."
"Until my kids are adults, I am not their friend," she added. "We are not on the same level. I'm the authority. My child's well-being is more important to me than my child's opinion of me. My job is not to be liked by my kid."
With nearly 200,000 views on YouTube, the video is clearly resonating with other parents. Clearly ice cream inspires parenting...
