Maybe you were supposed to be too old for dolls at her age. At least that’s what Yechiel teased her about. And this Shabbos was the worst. They were all in the van, packed and strapped and snapped when Leah’le realized Zissi was still sitting on the windowsill in her room.

Tatty had just started pulling out of the driveway when she cried, “Wait! I forgot Zissi!” “Can we go without Zissi?” Tatty asked, looking at his watch and then looking at Mommy. Mommy turned around in her seat and looked over the first bench to the back seat. “Can we go without Zissi?” she asked Leah’le. “How will Leah manage an entiiiire Shabbos without her dolly?” Yechiel mocked. A tear trembled onLeah’le’s check. Mommy took one look at her face and made a decision. “Yechiel, please run back as quick as you can and get Zissi. It’s very late.”
