Dear Britney,

In response to your questions:

1. The diaper goes on first, then the pants. It is similar to the way underpants work for adults. I can understand the confusion.

2. You are correct, a glass of Cristal will get a baby far more drunk than an adult. However, it's important to remember that a baby should never be allowed drink liquor, no matter how “cute” it is. Do not be embarassed. This is a mistake that any young mother could make.

3. It is unwise to leave a two year old in charge of a one year old, even if the older child is “smart and stuff.” I suggest you hire a babysitter or sit this particular movie out. Good Luck Chuck will be out on video soon enough.

4. The nipple goes in the baby's mouth; the flat part stays outside. I agree, it is infuriating that pacifier companies put such vague instructions on the packaging.

5. In the Zone was okay. That is all I am going to say about this.

6. See #5

7. See #5

8. See #5

9. Babies should not be taught dance steps. This is not responsible parenting.

10. The entire course takes ten weeks, but sometimes more sessions are required. I would make time to spend a solid fifteen to twenty weeks improving your parenting, learning necessary skills, and improving communication with Federline before you're “done with this [crap].”

11. A bra is, in fact, required for our sessions. In general, wearing a bra is always good advice to keep in mind.

It's obvious that you're invested in becoming a better parent. I look forward to our sessions.
