lancelot is on a distinguished road

We tried again today and it was much better.

I brought an 8" x 10" photo of our kids there. I think it helped, not only us for but the mediator. It puts 2 faces on there for him. I recommend it, even thoguh he looked at me funny when I placed it on the table.

At one point, we were going off track and I just tapped the frame and said "we need to focus". It worked like a charm.

In fact, today went so well, the mediator said after about 45 minutes that he didn't consider us high conflict !! Bear in mind he hasn't seen the crazy emails, scurrilous court documents and ridiculous offers.

But that just goes to show what a good attitude and a well placed photo can do. :-)

My stbx even managed to look me in the face and actually talk to me, which he couldn't do last time. small step at a time...
