How does he know what needs to get done? Well, he's more organized than I am. He actually keeps the list and designations on a sheet of paper that he shares only with his dad. Poor Mom (read ME) is kept in the dark. 

But finally Adi showed me the list. Guess what? My heart did a flip! I spotted one girl's name out of all the boys he's listed. Ahem, and her designat…
