It should be {SoH nIrurbog loDHompu'}, qar'a'? Although I'm not sure that
"boys" in this context means the same thing as {loDHom}. In English,
infantilisation is sometimes used as a form of affection, but Klingon
culture would probably view it as insulting. (There's a story here about an
unfortunate Terran who tried to flirt with a Klingon by calling her "baby",
i.e., {ghu}.)
