Dialogue

Me: Max, please put away the cutlery for me.
Max: This is not called cutlery.
Me: What do you call it?
Max: Silverware.
Me: Cutlery is another word for silverware. I grew up calling it silverware but, when we moved to Australia, I heard people calling it cutlery. Now I use both words.
Max: Cutlery is a swear word.
Me: What does it mean?
Max: It means baby in Spanish. The "cut" part means fighting.
(We've been working on only using "baby" to refer to the babies)
