Emily:  I can’t believe Britney Spears is pregnant again!

Dave:  The second baby. She’s a terrible mother!

Emily:  She’s a terrible mother! And who knows what’s going on with her crazy husband.

Dave:  She almost dropped her baby in New York yesterday or today.

Emily:  Yeah, I saw pictures of that. Now, did you see pictures of her driving in her little Mini Cooper, and her son was, like, all slouched over.

Dave:  On her lap?

Emily:  That was a different time.

Dave:  Oh.

Emily:  So that was really bad, but then there was a picture of her the other day driving in her – she has a Mini Cooper convertible.

Dave:  Okay.

Emily:  And, he was in the back but he wasn’t strapped in properly.

Dave:  [laughs]

Emily:  She’s a wreck.

Dave:  She is. And her nanny dropped her baby…

Emily:  Yes.

Dave:  ...a few weeks ago.

Emily:  And now she got a “manny,” a male nanny.

Dave:  Oh, man! Now she’s got another bun in the oven.

Emily:  Yes, yes!

Discussion

Britney may not be the world’s best mother, but she’s sure trying to be the world’s worst. Since the birth of her son, Preston, last year, Britney has had quite a few questionable moments in mothering.

In February, Britney was photographed driving her SUV with her baby in her lap. While this may be common in some countries, in the U.S. it considered very dangerous and is illegal.

In April, Britney’s nanny accidentally dropped Preston, injuring the young child’s head.

In early May, Britney was driving around Malibu, California, with her child improperly strapped into his child safety seat.

In mid-May, Britney nearly dropped her child when she tripped in New York City. Thankfully, her bodyguard was able to catch the child before he fell.

What’s next for mama Britney?

i like her song but i don't know about her life. it 's a secret and private.however i think a mother need to take care her baby carefully because nothing is larger and more important than the love between mum and children.children is motive for a mother to continue to live….Smile
