About Amy

Amy WillaI'm Amy. Military Wife. Mother to two Silly Bears. La Leche League Leader and natural parenting supporter. I write about my experience parenting and living our ever-changing military daily life . . . sharing thoughts and recipes for everything from mac and cheese to anger management, to breastfeeding success.

I am a bit of an over-achiever, but am passionate about everything that I do, so I carry on balancing it all: Parenting (the #1 job), my handmade cloth diaper and reusables shop, Silly Bear Handmade, my BS in Public Health (graduating May 2015!) and work as a LLL Leader while studying for the IBCLC Exam, doing Lactation Specific Education through online conferences and learning opportunities.

I strive for balance, have a hand at cooking and budgeting, and I drink coffee every afternoon.

I look forward to getting to know you!

We can talk about breasts when we talk about cleavage, celebrities, boob-jobs, or fashion, but […]
