Spears appeared in court in Los Angeles with her ex-husband Kevin Federline for the custody hearing.
Spears, 26, lost visitation rights to the two children last year during a bout of erratic behaviour that followed her divorce from Federline. But she appears to have calmed down following her forced stay in a mental health facility and the appointment of her father as her conservator.
According to the celebrity website tmz.com, the family court judge, Commissioner Scott Gordon, agreed Spears was once again ready to read bedtime stories to the kids after the singer appeared in person and answered several questions.
"She was very businesslike," said court spokesman Allan Parachini. "Any judge is happy when litigants are making progress."
