When Adrian Kulp first learned that he was about to become a father, he was essentially a teenage boy trapped in the body of a 32-year-old high-powered executive. He did what his wife asked him to do: Grow up. He packed away his Phillies baseball memorabilia, hid his GI Joes, and converted their guest bedroom from his private man cave into a nursery. Goodbye sticky beer cozy. Hello Diaper Genie.
Based on his mercilessly funny and brutally honest blog, here is the hilarious story of one man's journey from being the one who brings home the bacon to the one who fries it - along with assembling the crib, learning how to "accessorize" his daughter, and flying with an infant for the first time. From attending numbing booze-free co-ed baby showers to navigating the Farmer's Market with a baby (and loaded diaper) strapped to his chest, to locking himself out of a childproofed toilet, this often sweaty and exhausted SAHD (stay-at-home dad) gets down and dirty about surviving life as a new parent - Dad or Alive.
