The Dadechelor Party!
Anyone who has children can probably attest that his or her freedom was incredibly compromised after having a baby. Between the long nights and fuzzy days, who could even think of going out, especially partying post-baby. That’s why when I heard about the Dadechelor Party the other day, I had to write about this BRILLIANT idea!
So what is the Dadechelor Party? It sounds like something that Chris (Will Arnett’s character) on Up All Night would have done before his baby. Just like any party that celebrates YOU, it can be exactly what you like. If you prefer dinner and drinks or clubs at 2am, then that should be your party. Just remember to do it right. You don’t have to wake up to a screaming baby, yet, and you don’t have to find a babysitter, so live it up! A night out with friends to celebrate those last days before having to plan around naps and feedings–who could resist?
The only problem I have with this idea is that it doesn’t include the ladies. Sure, dads-to-be deserve their night out with friends, but so does a mother-to-be. I personally love to see a prego getting down on the dance floor, so moms, let’s start a new one … the Mamachelorette Party. Wow, that’s a mouthful! If anyone can think of a better name, please share. So, if you’re pregnant and planning a night out with the girls to exercise your pre-baby freedom, you’ll need something fun to wear. Check out my picks for your Mamachelorette.
