Breakups – In Many Ways They’re Like a Barstool
Chapter 1 of SUPERWOMAN takes readers through the four phases of a breakup. From waking up and realizing that you’ve been overlooking yourself (phase 1) to the day when you look in the mirror and KNOW in your heart of hearts that you’ll be fine without him (phase 4). Each step of the process builds us up until we’re strong enough to stand on our own – or sit on a barstool – and explore new opportunities.
Sometimes those opportunities lead to a new (and better) relationship. Sometimes it’s a matter of taking some much-needed time to discover what type of eggs we actually like – just like Julia Roberts’ character in the romantic comedy, Runaway Bride.
There’s no denying that breakups are difficult. But sometimes they’re necessary for us to grow. And that’s exactly what happened to me after I left the father of my kids. SUPERWOMAN is a collection of essays where I share my experiences as well as the stories of other single mothers. Sometimes it’s just nice to know that we’re not alone in our circumstances. As single moms, we often feel alone but really there are a lot of us out there, doing our best for both our kids and ourselves.
A light read that’s both funny and reflective, SUPERWOMAN is the book I would have needed to read when I was a young, struggling mom. I wrote it for younger me. I wrote it for you – as a reminder that you have the power to follow your dreams and live happily ever after, with or without a partner.

They put the tiny, red-faced bundle into her arms, and time stopped. She gazed at that puckered little face and whispered, Welcome to the world, baby girl. Little did she know that within weeks, she would become a single mother—not exactly what she had imagined for her daughters and herself, but exactly what needed to happen. This is the story of a single mother, but it’s more than that. Sometimes funny, sometimes reflective, it’s also your story—a story of that peculiar, trying, and wonderful state of motherhood.
In Superwoman: A Funny and Reflective Look at Single Motherhood, popular humor blogger Mona Andrei brings you her sage and snickery insights on being a single mom, with all its gore and glory. Through a series of interviews, you’ll also get a voyeuristic peek into the lives of other single mothers—and don’t we all love that feeling of Thank goodness, I’m not the only one! We’re all superwomen here.
About the Author
Mona Andrei’s adulting journey took an unexpected turn when she realized that the father of her children was not committed to the family they had started together. At the time, she was twenty-four years old. With a baby in her arms and a toddler in tow, she soon realized that everything had fallen on her shoulders, including any chance for a secure future for her and her girls. With humor and candor as her strongest tools for survival, she went from struggling single mother to accomplished wordsmith to member of an award-winning advertising team to top 100 humor blogger. Today, she continues her journey, writing and speaking about her experiences as a single mother with a focus on changing the way that single mothers are respected and appreciated in the workplace: a win–win for both.
