Another day, another treat for Britney Spears' two favourite boys as they watch 'Shrek' Whatever Britney Spears has got planned for her sons' birthdays next month, it will have to be something pretty spectacular.

Her boys, Jayden James, who turns three on September 12, and his big brother, Sean Preston whose fourth birthday is two days later, have had every conceivable treat lately.

There was the carriage ride in New York's Central Park, dolphin sightings in the Bahamas, and a day out to London Zoo.

Meanwhile, on Thursday night the pop star took them to see Shrek The Musical on Broadway.

Spoiling them just a little is forgivable since the young mum is hard at work most of the time on her world tour. This week she had three back-to-back concert dates at Madison Square Garden.

Dressed down in jeans and a stripey top, the singer looked like any normal young parent, relishing time off with her kids.

It's a measure of how far Britney has come since her well-publicised troubles that her fans are able to look forward to the latest sightings of her and the little lads with such pleasure.
