Joys of Learning the Language

Can anyone explain how a child with articulation issues decides that her “breakthrough” is going to be a good old Anglo-Saxon four-letter word, taught to her by her older brother?

I guess it is a sign that we’ve been involved in speech therapy in some form for the last ten years, but I find myself having a mixed response.  Part of me is, of course, mortified.  The other part of me is thinking, “did you just hear how clear that F-sound was?  I never thought she’d get the labiodental fricative right.  And what a crisp glottal K!”
