Eden M. Kennedy

mission accomplished, pal

Eden M. Kennedy is the co-author (with Alice Bradley) of the book Let's Panic About Babies! (St. Martin's Press).

A former college-radio DJ, Mrs. Kennedy has driven cross-country six times in a 1973 Volkswagen Bug and enjoys standing on her head.

Currently she works a straight job and is just about finished writing her first novel.

The honeymoon is over.

I realized today that the terrible twos don't begin when a kid turns two, they begin at the start of the kid's second year, i.e., at birthday one. You want tantrums? Tears? Head banging on the floor? We got 'em, and he's only ten months old.
