Happy Mama's Day, Britney!

Britney Spears spent part of her Mother's Day weekend with her mama Lynne Spears as well as with her young sons Sean Preston and Jayden James. To get the weekend festivities started, Brit Brit took her mother out for dinner at SUR restaurant on Saturday night and then spent Mother's Day Sunday with her children at her Beverly Hills home ... here are a few pics from Britney's weekend:

It's really great seeing Britney back in the company of her mother these days ... I believe things were falling apart with Mama Lynne around this time last year so it's nice that they can enjoy Mother's Day together again this year. I am VERY happy to see that things are going well with Britney and her children ... and now, according to Kevin Federline's attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan, the way is paved for even more interaction with her children now that things are going so smoothly between Brit and K-Fed as well:

There may be a thaw in the formerly contentious relationship between Britney Spears and Kevin Federline, suggests K-Fed's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan. Spears, who last week was awarded more visitation time with her sons by Federline (Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1), was the topic of discussion for Kaplan, on Monday's Today show. Kaplan said that the judge's decision at last week's ruling reflected an "improvement" in Spears's condition. She spent full days, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., on both May 8th and Mother's Day with her sons. Asked about the current status of the relationship between the couple – including the rumor they would again star together on a TV show – Kaplan sidestepped any direct answers, instead saying that any potential reconciliation between Spears and Federline would be for the sake of their sons. "If you're going to have two parents participate in the lives of raising their children," said Kaplan, "there has to be some camaraderie between them for that to be a meaningful expectation and reality." But are things better between the ex-husband and wife? "When you go from where things were, when there was no visitation, to where they are now," said Kaplan, "there will be some contact … there'd be some ability to exchange a camaraderie that is necessary and a function of co-parenting together."

I totally agree ... and now that both Britney and Kevin are acting more like adults rather than reckless children themselves, I think there is a way for both parents to interact with one another in a manner that will be beneficial to their children. It sounds like Britney enjoyed a great Mother's Day this year ... hopefully the best is yet to come. Woot! [Source]
