Adds the star of Jayden James, 10, and Sean Preston, 11, “I am so lucky that I get to experience all of life’s adventures with them.”

Spears, 35, shares the boys with ex-husband Kevin Federline, from whom she split in 2007.

Federline and Spears have amicably co-parented for years, but the singer tells PEOPLE that “the balance between work and my personal life can be a challenge” as a single mom.

“I always do my best to plan my schedule around my family whenever possible,” she says.

Spears is enjoying every moment she has with Preston and Jayden, sharing, “I love watching them play sports and just running around with them.”

“We have a lot of fun together,” the proud mom says. “We love having a beach day together.”

And she’s focused on raising respectful young men. As the “Slumber Party” songstress tells PEOPLE, “I have always taught them that beauty comes from within.”
