Pregnant women get all the attention when they’re expecting — as they should. After all, we’re the ones whose bodies are busy growing another human being. We’re the ones whose clothes no longer fit, whose moods we no longer recognize, and who have to get this baby out of us one way or another at some point, hopefully after 9 months.

No more late nights with the fellas, no more sleeping in on Sundays, no more new-sneakers purchases every two months. So more and more, dads are getting their what-about-me time before the baby arrives with the emerging trend of Dadchelor parties.
