Britney Spears: This year's candidate for Mother of the Year

Will someone please take her children away from her, quick??

Us Weekly has the story explaining her fabulous mothering skills:

“[Sean] He’s having dental problems because Britney just shoves a bottle of juice in his mouth all the time to stop him from crying,” a family insider tells Us.

Spears feeds her kids Doritos, gives the toddlers Coca Cola out of baby bottles and even asked a dentist if he would whiten her kid’s teeth. The dentist refused.

Brit even let her kids run around and make a mess of a house they were looking to potentially buy last week. “She ate tacos on the bedroom floor!” a source tells Us Weekly. “She got crumbs and grease everywhere. She let her babies and her dog roam the floor. She left the bed a mess – I don’t know what’s wrong with her.”

Life & Style has even more on what it's like to grow up with Britney Spears as a mother (emphasis mine):

While Brit’s public slipups make news, a second Britney insider says that being at home with the single mom, 25, is just as unstable for her kids. “It’s tragic what these boys are exposed to on a daily basis,” the insider says. “Kids thrive on routine and the feeling of safety, and Sean and Jayden have neither. Their lives are subject to Brit’s whims.”

And some of the dangers are severe. When Britney and Kevin were first married, she objected to his smoking around the kids, the insider notes, but now “she smokes like a chimney in front of them.” Even worse, when Brit misplaces her pack of cigarettes, “she’ll actually turn to Sean and say, ‘Baby, where are Mama’s lollipops?’ Sean runs, gets her cigarettes and brings them back to her.”

Brit’s also constantly handing off her kids to bodyguards, nannies, even strangers. “She has a short attention span, and that applies to caring for her kids,” says the insider. “Jayden is at a fussy stage, and when he starts crying, Brit hands the baby to a bodyguard to calm him down. When she needs a break, she gives her boys to the nearest person — even shopgirls at clothing stores!”

But Britney still won’t allow the one person who really wants to help care for the kids — her mom — anywhere near them. In fact, the insider says, when Sean asks for Grandma, the singer (who blames Lynne for making her go to rehab in February) “tells the boys, ‘she’s a bad lady,’” says the insider. “It’s so inappropriate to drag the boys into her family feud when they can’t understand what’s going on.”

Really, let's just skip the formalities and go ahead and give her the Mother of the Year award. Clearly, she deserves it.
