For anyone who’s interested, there is a “Dad & Baby” group meeting tonight and it’s a pretty good time.
It’s held at Cape Cod Hospital in Hyannis and all the dads are encouraged to bring their kids (14 months and younger) to the Lorusso Boardroom from 6 to 8 pm to meet up and talk with other dads. There is also free pizza.
Now granted, I myself was a little skeptical at the thought of going into a room with a bunch of dudes and their babies and talking about feelings. But it’s not really like that. It’s just a bunch of normal, everyday guys getting together and comparing stories. Complain about your wife, rave about your kid, talk about the best and worst things about being a Dad. I tell ya, as someone who doesn’t have a lot of friends who live close by, it was nice to be around people in the same situation.
So pass the word on and feel free to stop by.
