Sources say Britney Spears relies too heavily on nannies to help care for her two sons, Sean Preston, 17 months, and Jayden James, 5 months.
Wow, we're astonished.
When Spears is alone with her kids, "she gets overwhelmed," a source tells Us Weekly, which features a newly-shorn Britney Spears on its cover. "She gets so frustrated when they cry, asking, 'How do I make it stop?' But she loves her kids."
If you're thinking of applying for a nanny job with the wigger, first read what one job candidate claims were the requirements when she applied last year:
PROFESSIONAL STANDARDS = NONE
"Britney didn't ask me one thing about my child care experience. She only wanted to know about my personal life."
MUST BE A FRIEND ABOVE ALL ELSE
"The agency that called me emphasized that Britney was looking for a nanny who was young and hip because they wanted her to interact with people her own age. Basically, Britney wanted a friend."
MUST ADMIRE NUDE BRITNEY SPEARS
"Britney asked me and one of her nannies to come to her room to watch her try on outfits for a party one night â€" then she stripped down naked in front of us!"
MUST BE THE DE FACTO MOTHER
"One nanny told me that Britney will hold her kids for 10 minutes and then say, â€˜I'm done now. You can take them.'"
BE GOOD... JUST NOT GREAT
"Britney doesn't like when [Sean Preston] prefers the nanny to her, so she fires them and looks for a new one."
Great stuff. It seems like Britney, who recently had a meltdown and shaved her head, then freaked and got a wig, then checked into rehab (and out of rehab) twice in the past week, wasn't really ready to start a family at such a young age.
We're stunned, and frankly, a little scared for the kids at this point. For once, The Gossip and Kevin Federline probably agree on something.
