‘I was mortified when I saw what I had done,’ Rebecca from Dunstable, UK, said.
‘It was a hectic morning and I just bought it without thinking.
‘When I saw Ava with the tiny penis in her hand, my heart sank, but I quickly burst into hysterical laughter at my blunder!’
Rebecca took to Facebook to share her mistake, where her post quickly went viral, amassing 340,000 likes and 176,000 shares.
‘Mum of the Year award most definitely does not go to me,’ Rebecca wrote.
‘I wandered into the market and Ava begged me for some ‘smiley face’ pasta she saw.
‘So I bought it, cooked it for the girls for lunch today..
‘Thought it looked a bit odd, re-looked at the bag and it's only bloody penis pasta.
‘How could I not even realise even while cooking it?!
‘So my 3 year old and 7 month old are currently sat eating a bowl of di**s for their lunch. Life.’
Rebecca and fiance Simon Ridgeway, 31, cannot believe the attention the blunder has been getting.
‘I couldn't wait to tell Simon and show him the photos when he got home,’ Rebecca says.
‘I posted it on Facebook because it really is the stupidest thing I've ever done and I thought my friends would appreciate it - I never expected it to go viral!’
