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.

Good morning, I'm humorless and resentful, as are many moms who blog. We overscrutinize our children's every excretion and whore out adorable anecdotes about them just to get attention for ourselves!

Also, you may have noticed, I have a name. I fully intend never to use it again and to continue hiding behind my husband, because I'm shy and delicate and need the kind of protection that only a big, strong, breadwinning man can provide.

What else? Lunchables! I feed my son Lunchables!

You know what, though: I can complain about it, but I got quoted in the New York fuckin' Times, baby, along with some of my very favorite Interweb pals, and that's pretty good.
