My father-in-law thinks that God answers all my prayers. And while that's a complete exaggeration, score one for team Keith.
Last summer we had a number of empty apartments near our building. I kept telling John that I wanted a teenage, homeschooler to move in so that we could take advantage of her babysitting abilities night and day.
Soon after a homeschooling family with eight kids moved in. Eight. And I haven't been in want of a babysitter since.
