Little miss had an invitation to dinner with a friend - I was glad to let her go. And I'm sitting here trying to remind myself that I did, in fact, sign up for this - I actually signed papers and spoke to a judge. My brother has always been a pompous jerk and probably always will be, but he did come to help me with my root problems. I am not my father (wrong sex and everything), but for his times, he was considered a good parent, so I could do worse. And even when I lived alone, I didn't go out all that much - conferences are different from real life.

You are doing a good thing, and I know that if there was some way for your brother to thank you, he would.

I think all (maybe only most, but I bet closer to all) parents of pre-teens and teenagers have to remind themselves that they chose to have kids. You chose one way, I chose another, but 12 year olds are 12 year olds.
