Britney Spears has come a long way from 2006, when she gave then infant-son Sean Preston a driving lesson as he sat on her lap behind the wheel of an SUV. Now when she lets Preston and little brother Jayden drive, helmets and other safety gear are involved, and the speed is kept to a minimum.
This week, the Las Vegas-bound popster posted an Instagram pic that shows her piloting (with seemingly fierce concentration) an ATV with Jayden. The ride was in celebration of the tot's 7th birthday on Sept. 12.
"My little future motor crosser and I ripping up the track....At 5 MPH! Yee haw," she wrote.
In another pic, Jayden poses with big brother Sean Preston in full racing gear in front of their birthday cake (Preston, born almost exactly one year before Jayden, was marking his 8th birthday).
In other Brit-Brit news, her apparent plan to make Preston a regular part of her Sin City act has been given the thumbs down by her ex-husband, Kevin Federline.
When asked by TMZ what he thought of her suggestion that their eldest son may join her onstage every now and then, K. Fed implied that it wasn't going to happen, at least not until the tyke is 25.
"We'll see about that, won't we?" he said.
Britney's two-year residency at Planet Hollywood kicks off on Dec. 27. Despite reports to the contrary, ticket sales have apparently been brisk.
