1. (Verb) To defy or challenge someone to do something idiotic.
2. (Noun) An idiotic challenge.
3. (Fact) Something with which you'll become intimately familiar in a house full of boys.

There's nothing like a crew of boys to show you how funny bodily functions are, how loud a house can get, and how little one should care about clothes, nice shoes, style, and personal care. Boys see the world as a gigantic playground. They see home as a safe place to be their truest, messiest selves. They see moms as a source of unconditional, never-ending love and dads as an eternal jungle gym.

There's just nothing like them.

From the voice behind the popular Crash Test Parents blog comes Book 3 of the Crash Test Parents series. With wit and eloquence, Rachel shines a light on what it's like to live with males who unintentionally destroy everything, unwittingly walk around in a dirt cloud, and wholeheartedly enjoy making everything a competition--especially if it involves eating.

This Life With Boys includes hilarious and entertaining essays like:

What Sons Do to a Perfectly Good House
Food is the Way to a Boy's Heart
What it Means to Be a Boy: Compete in Everything
Welcome to My Smelly Pit
How Boys Fight: Incessantly
I See London, I See France, Go Put on Some Underpants
How to Dress Like a Boy
Things You'll Hear in a Household of Boys
How to Turn Family Dinners into Family Gag Fests
11 Mom Looks that are Familiar to Boys
8 Ridiculous Things I No Longer Care About As a Mom

and many more.

Hailed as "the Erma Bombeck of a new generation of parents," Rachel's third full-length book of humor essays in the Crash Test Parents series will make you laugh until you cry and cry until you laugh--but mostly it will remind you that this life with boys? It's pretty grand.

Rachel is the mother of six young boys who daily give her inspiration for comical essays. Her work can often be seen on Huff Post Parents, Scary Mommy, Babble and Motherly. She lives with all her males in San Antonio, Texas, where she faithfully writes 5,000 words a day, five days a week.
