I am a young South African mom living in London – working the 9 to 5
job, with some hippy tendencies, funky friends, a love for shoes and a
mild dependence on Starbucks. My family rocks! My boy is pre-high
school and my husband is an entrepreneur extraordinaire. Both have
enough energy between them to light a city and quite often they do. My
blog is about being the mom of a exceptional kid, the wife of a man who
is larger than life that I adore, and encounters I have with the weird
and wonderful people of London Town.
Those who know me personally, know that I have a fondness for alter-egos. An alter-ego is basically a character you pull out of yourself that allows you to do the things your normal self would be too chicken to do. Forgive me for this example but take Beyonce. She has Sasha Fierce when it's time to get crazy on stage. Dr. Jekyll turned into Mr. Hyde when it was time to get psychopathic. Me? I have Spidy Clamburger.
A passion for life, love, faith, exploring art through textiles - this
is what I discovered after my struggle with post-natal depression - a
zest for life and people, that I had never felt before. Unbecoming lily
is my place to document this growth as a child of God, woman, a wife, a
mum, an artist, and just maybe, hopefully, share my new joy through art
and writing and an increased awareness of depression.
My real life name is Jennifer, but that's just boring, so I'm known on the internet as Unconditional Mom; particularly on my blog (http://anunconditionalmom.blog.com/) Sometimes I answer to that first. Why?...more
