Here at Listen Up, we love all things Neil Patrick Harris — so we were delighted to learn that he will be narrating the audio edition of Barney Stinson’s The Bro Code for Parents: What to Expect when You’re Awesome for Simon & Schuster Audio.
The Bro Code for Parents is the latest from Stinson, following the bestselling The Bro Code and The Playbook — both of which were also narrated by NPH.
The Bro Code for Parents aims teach prospective parents everything they need to know about having a kid by answering some of the toughest questions facing new parents: Will I ever be able to do awesome things again? Will I be able to afford this? Can I ever have sex again? Will I be a good parent? Am I able to love this child as much as I love my own life? Can I ever have sex again?
Stinson says the answer to all of these questions is a big NO.
But just because your life is now a “petrifying turd on the canvas of life” doesn’t mean your kid can’t turn out okay. And The Bro Code for Parents is here to help anyone become an “awesomommy” or “legendaddy.”
