Author(s): Hannah Evans
You know you've joined the MOB when you hear...'My, are they all yours?' 'Bless you!' (Occasionally) 'Poor you!' (Frequently) 'Lucky you!' (Once) And of course, the ultimate: 'So ...are you going for a girl?' Hannah Evans has three small boys. In her world, farting is so much more interesting than phonics, dam-building trumps damsels in distress any day and, astonishingly, she now instinctively knows the difference between a Frontloader and a JCB. It's a world of mud - and just occasionally blood - sweat and tears. It is also a world of indescribable joy. MOB Rule is the funny, honest and eye-opening account of Hannah's experiences as a Mother of Boys. Supplemented by recipes, quizzes, mnemonics and mysteries, it is the indispensible book for anyone who finds themselves adrift on a sea of testosterone, wondering when the lifeboat is going to show up. You may be outnumbered, your face may be frazzled and your toe-nails black and bare, but know that, far from being alone, you're part of a very special club. Welcome to ...the MOB!
The trials, tribulations and unexpected triumphs of being a lone Queen in a Kingdom of Kings
Hannah Evans has previously explored the world of the MOB in a number of articles, most noticeably in the Guardian. She lives with her husband and three boys in Hampshire. www.hannahevans.co.uk
