I have been trying to figure out how to balance everything on my plate and still be true to my kids and Jeff - and well, even with my aunt here visiting and helping, I am falling short. Really - just not giving the 'time' I need.<br><br>
I need to back away from moderating for a while. I have felt I should do this a few times, but just feel so connected to you Diapering mommas that I haven't been able to do it.<br><br>
I have been asked to write more and that is my love. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I haven't had time to write and have even failed to maintain journaling and I've done that since 3rd grade - not something I want to lax up on now.<br><br>
We have several things going on with extended family in the way of hospitalizations, job losses, death and terminal illness that is weighing heavy on my heart as well.<br><br>
Anyway, I just think I'd like to be able to come online as a member and not necessarily as a moderator at this time.<br><br>
Please forgive me for needing to leave like this, but I have tried so many times to balance it all and really - it is TIME. Jeff has asked me countless times and I figure I've been here a year and it is time for someone (or rather 'two' someone elses) to step up and take the lead for a while. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/nod.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="nod"><br><br>
So, on that note I would like to let you know that Trish will be coming on the board to work hand-in-hand with Pamela as your new Diapering Moderator. She and Pamela will co-mod together.<br><br><a href="http://216.92.20.151/discussions/showthread.php?s=&postid=820446#post820446" target="_blank"><b><span style="color:#008000;">Come and Celebrate Trish's Welcome!</span></b></a><br><br>

I'm sure this is the right decision for you, Heather. I'm sorry to hear that things aren't smooth sailing for you and your family at the moment. Thanks for all your hard work, time, and sage diapering wisdom <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> We better hear from you a lot, even without your being a moderator, or the hyenas will come and hunt you down <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hyena.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hyena">

Thanks for all your hard work, Heather. I have missed your witty and fun posts and hope that you will still be here if not as a moderator at least as a mama. Good luck with your projects and I am sorry to hear about the illnessess and losses in your family <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">

I can totally understand you needing to take more time for your family and while your presence as a moderator will be missed I know we'll be in good hands with your replacements <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

And that is for all the time, hard work and wisdom you've put into your time as a moderator here. AND for knowing when it is time to step down and attend to other more pressing needs in your life and the life of your family. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"><br>
LOVE YOU, MAMA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love">

Heather.....<br><br>
You are an inspiration to all of us I am sure. Remember the key to being a "WAHM" is being a "waHM" if you know what I mean <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Do what yuou need to to make your FAMILY work and the rest will fall into place.<br><br>
Blessings to you <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>

Not one new mod, not even two could replace you, Heather. I want to say that you have touched my life in so many ways. You brought me to MDC and for that I am very grateful.<br><br>
Of course I fully fully support your decision. Being the best mama you can is really what this place is all about, isn't it?<br><br><span style="font-size:medium;">So: In Honor Of <span style="color:#FFA500;">Heather</span>...</span><br>
and all she has done for us here in Diapering (special forums, auctions, advice, information, love, support, Haiku, etc.) let's all work together so it can continue to be the forum she has worked so hard to nurture.<br><br>
I mean... let's work doubly hard to provide information to newbies. Let's reach out to others in need. Let's Launder to the best of our abilities <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">. Lets STAMP OUT SPAM. <span style="font-size:xx-small;">Er, well, maybe that's my agenda creeping in a bit.</span> We need all of you diapering mamas to kick in a little bit more to help fill the gigantic gaping void she's going to leave. (I am *not* being Overly Dramatic!)<br><br>
Heather, we will take care of Diapering while you take care of your home life, and we'll be happy to have you back when all of your ducks are in a row.<br><br>
I'm sure I'll have more to add later...<br><br>

I go out of town for 2 DAYS AND THIS HAPPENS!?!?!?<br><br><br><span style="color:#FFA500;">Heather</span>, you have helped make this board the wonderful community that it is. I have been able to rely on you as a resource for cloth diapering wisdom for all this time *sniff* at least that won't end *snuffle* because you are gonna see my booty all over <a href="http://www.diaperhyena.com" target="_blank">the diaper hyena!</a> <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/banana.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="banana"> !<br><br>
Now if you aren't modding here, maybe I have a crack now at breaking your post count... hmm, only about 9000 to go... <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"><br><br>
We love you Heather and you will be missed.<br><br>
Yours,<br>
Smelly Cat<br><span style="font-size:xx-small;">edited to change reference to Heather's colossal post count, I was off by 6000 (!!)</span>

Heather you will be surely missed as the mod of the board, but I couldn't think of 2 better people to take over <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br>
You have done an awesome job and now it's time to sit back and "just" be a member.<br>
Enjoy your new status and time with your family <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/hug.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="hug">
