Songfacts®:

  • This ode to Britney's sons Jayden and Sean was written by Britney herself. She penned this song at the end of a traumatic year, in which, after a humiliating meltdown that was covered in great detail by the tabloids, the singer lost custody of her two children. Thanks to a court order that granted her increased visitation rights, Britney was reunited with the pair, and she wrote this in gratitude to the toddlers for inspiring her to get her life and career back on track.
