That smile says it all!
"I'm in a real good place," says Britney Spears, whose personal and professional futures once seemed uncertain. In fact, the 33-year-old singer says in People's Apr. 6 issue, "I'm the happiest I've ever been."
Posing with sons Sean Preston Federline, 9, and Jayden James Federline, 8, at their home on March 11, Spears says the family's calendar is full of play dates, soccer games and gymnastics lessons. Schoolwork comes first, however. "Homework is a priority," says Spears, noting that it can last three hours a night. "We have a reward system that helps motivate them: if they get so many As, they get one toy a month."
Because her elder son will learn pre-algebra in fifth grade next year, Spears says, "I'm taking classes so I know how to do it!"
The Federline brothers also help out around the house by doing chores, which include washing off their plates after meals, taking out the trash and looking after the family's three dogs. Do they get rewarded? "Preston just asked for a high allowance–like $10 a week or $20 a week–but we'll see!" the singer says.
