No one understands the joys of being a new mother quite like, well, a new mom. There are ups, downs, sleepless nights, poopy diapers, and enough craziness to make you question your own sanity. Alison Wong's "New Mom Comics" hilariously capture motherhood and all the wonderful (and not so wonderful) adventures you have with baby.

Poking fun at the realities of being a new parent, Alison put her artistic talents on display on her New Mom Comics website for all mothers to enjoy. Just nod your head at your computer screen if any of the following has ever happened to you ...

1. After some time of not hearing your baby, you thought the worst, and you disturbed your son or daughter's slumber. (Yeah, I'm guilty of this one.)

2. Mothers have been known to open their wallets when heavy-eyed. If buying a new vacuum cleaner, shoes, and that eyeliner you saw somewhere keeps you awake while breastfeeding, more power to ya. (Hope you got free shipping!)

3. Speaking of breastfeeding ... be prepared to cry (a lot) when you accidentally spill your liquid gold on the floor.

4. Ooh, mama. What a big arm you have! Yeah, you might want to remember to switch sides. You know, just to even that out a little.

5. Three cheers for the disappearance of the linea nigra. Woo-hoo!

6. Ah, yes, the late-night "for the love of God, please go to sleep" tango. At least you can meet your Fitbit goal! (Who cares if you didn't get in a full 10,000 steps?)

8. So many awesome baby milestones, not enough space on your phone. *Sighs.*

9. Of course you only call for mama in the middle of the night, or when you really need something. But Dad? Oh, he gets the grand welcome.

Ain't no shame in purchasing a premade swaddle. #Nojudgmenthere

These are so spot-on.

You might as well print them out and hang them up on your fridge, hahaha.

Let's see ... yup, I'm guilty of all of the above! (My late-night purchases helped stimulate the economy, and is making America great again. That's my reasoning, and I'm sticking to it!)
