Records of my time with James Benjamin, my Friday child.
This is an ongoing arts project: text comprised of diary entries, audio and photographs by Lena Simic, artist/mother.
My maternity leave started on 06.01.2014.
James Benjamin was born on 10.01.2014.
Early days are described through James’s birth story and Doubts entry.
First two weeks were spent with the father who was on paternity leave.
It is from 24.01 that I started being alone with the baby, on my maternity leave.
This blog outlines my weeks during my maternity leave. I compile material every Friday.
