Mother’s Day (May 11) Is A Heavy Holiday For Dads-To-Be

NATICK, Mass. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Dads are getting their “due” this Mother’s Day (May 11).

This Saturday (May 10) BJ’s Wholesale Club in Valley Stream, New York, is holding their 1st Annual Dad’s Diaper Dash, where five dad-to-be finalists will strap on a 37-pound empathy belly and compete in pregnancy-themed challenges for the chance to win a year’s supply of diapers.

By wearing the big belly, dads will feel the perils of pregnancy while being forced to make a bed, vacuum, pick out groceries, and even paint their toenails.

BJ’s spokesperson Sharyn Frankel says, “Once the guys get that belly on, they’ll have a new respect for their wives!”

Frankel suggests dads do “lots of side-to-side walking” to master the mom moves, but when it comes to the preggo pampering, she says guys are on their own.

She says, “The hardest part will definitely be the toenail painting. I doubt these guys have done that before. It might be embarrassing, but for year’s supply of diapers, I don’t think they care.”
