Can you say "Duck!!"?

BAGHDAD — Nawal Na'eem Karim was surprised this week to hear her toddler tell her, "Talaq inana! Talaq inana!" — "Bullets here! Bullets here!"

He was warning her to step cautiously past the windows. Their house is in a kill zone. At 18 months, her baby already had learned counterinsurgency survival. He still wears a diaper.

Baby's first words are always memorable. I'm sure these will be indelibly etched into Mommy's memory.

After fighting with Time Warner all day, and finally winning, which is why I am now able to connect with the Internets, I had to find something utterly depressing to post.

Just wanted to cheer all of you up.

What a nice place to make childhood memories. Imagine the fun they have developing their large motor skills sidestepping the IED's. Good times.
