Straight from my heart â€“ A glimpse into what makes my fellow Panelists so very precious to me.
There were 3 Amanda’s who joined the Moms PanelÂ family in 2010. Amanda P from Texas was one of them.
Training Weekend was such a whirlwind and if I had one regret when I got home, it was that I hadn’t gotten the chance to really visit with Amanda, Diane G, Dorothy and Maribel enough. These four really connected quickly and they sat together often.Â Time flew by, andÂ I never really had the opportunity to chat withÂ them at length.
HereÂ they are togetherÂ at the California Grill.Â Â
While a lot of us were off riding attractions during “free time” on our Training Trip, Amanda was not. It wasn’t until the very last morning when we were headed home that I learned that Amanda was pregnant with her 3rd child. She was quite the trooper going through Training early in her pregnancy.Â She managed to survive on precious little sleep and always had a smile on her face.
Â Amanda has such a sweet disposition. Like all of us, she is a huge Disney fan and she lights up like a little kid whenever the characters are around.
We were all ridiculously excited when Amanda had the very first, official Moms Panel Princess last year. I couldn’t wait to meet herÂ beautiful little girlÂ at the October 2010 Moms Panel Reunion.
In the nearly 2 years since our Training Trip, I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Amanda better. She has a fantastic sense of humor and she cracks me up online daily with her quick-witted remarks.Â A former teacher, AmandaÂ now spends her daysÂ spreading the DisneyÂ magic and snuggling with her sweet kids. She has a heart the size of Texas and I’m really looking forward to seeing her again this DecemberÂ when we welcome the newest members of the Moms Panel family.
