I read about a new “trend” today. It’s called the “dadchelor party”. Think: Baby shower for men with shots instead of champagne and a side of strippers. Not kidding! Now, when I first read what it was all about before watching the video, I though to myself, why not? Parenthood is a big and exciting change, so why can’t men celebrate it too? But I also thought most men wouldn’t care enough to want to have one. Then I watched the below video of a dadcehlor party in action and had a slight change of heart. This guy’s wearing a “it’s a boy” sash and throwing them back like know tomorrow with a stripper pole in sight — complete with diaper kegs and all.
Not quite sure a man “deserves” to go out and behave like a college frat boy just because his wife is pregnant with their first child. If I told Man that me and my baby bump were headed to the club to dance the night away in celebration of the child’s impending birth he might think I’d lost my mind. Wouldn’t yours? Ladies, what say we? Are dadchelor parties silly? Or just something new? Watch and tell me…men, you’re welcome to weigh in too!
