Every other week or so when I pick up Koala from his gan, his ganenet passes me the pants I dressed him in that day and I look down and see him wearing the poofy red replacement pants we keep there.
Always with the same explanation: “He leaked again so we changed him…”
I guess I figured his diaper wasn’t changed enough or he was getting water all over himself. At least, it always sounded that way.
Today, my husband went to pick him up and got the same story. Only, he actually understood what the ganenet had been trying to tell me for months:
His pants are too big and fall down his legs.
She said: “Nozel lo.” I heard: “He leaks.” But apparently, she was being poetic and saying that his pants are sliding down his legs because they’re too big.
And I kept sending him in them every week.
Why didn’t she ever tell me they were gadol midai???
