Have you ever heard of a dadchelor party? It’s basically like a bachelor party, but for first-time dads. Complete with bar crawl and acts of public humiliation. Tonight was the Husband’s and our friend Sean’s dadchelor celebration.
I would show you the front of these shirts, but the guys may kill me. Here’s a description: there’s a sling sewn onto the front with a Cabbage Patch doll tucked in. And they each have a button that says, “New Dad – Give Me Advice!” Part of the evening entails fulfilling a ‘scavenger hunt’ list that includes: finding a pregnant woman to take a picture with (may be difficult at a bar…), getting someone to show them how to burp and change the Cabbage Patch doll, and learning a lullaby. Oh, how I’d love to be a fly on the wall…
Now, it’s not fair to let the guys have all the fun – a few of the female counterparts (including the other mommas-to-be) decided to come together at my place for a ladies’ night in.
We had a delicious dinner – I just made this simple quinoa dish that included pineapple chunks, peas, corn, chickpeas, and sunflower seeds.
And for dessert, we had ice cream and brownies. Yesssss.
In a sugar coma, we all curled up on the couch and watched a chick flick. We considered painting our nails to make the ladies’ night in seem complete, but we never got there. Toes seem far away at this point.
This may just be the pregnancy hormones talkin’, but evening in > evening out.
