Sophie was prancing around prior to bath-time with her toothbrush between her legs – this is the conversation that followed:
Mum: “Sophie, clean your teeth with your toothbrush, not your bottom!”
Sophie: “Fanny! Tee, hee, hee!”
Mum (with half worried, half amused face): “Sophie, what was that you said?”
Sophie: “Fanny! Tee, hee!”
Mum: “Who told you that word?!”
Sophie (laughing at me): “Daddy!”
Mum now goes upstairs to the bathroom with Sophie, where Dad and Charlotte are (by this time Sophie’s toothbrush is where it should be!).
Mum to Dad: “Have you ever used the word ‘fanny’ in front of Sophie?”
Dad (laughs): “No!”
Then it clicks – Not ‘Fanny’, but ‘Funny’! Oops!
Austin Powers would have approved…
