So, motherhood. It's a pretty amazing, incredible, fulfilling gig that most of us wouldn't trade for the world ... part of the time. The rest of the time, it's a nail-biting, gut-wrenching, ear-piercing experience that has us wondering what the hell we got ourselves into. But we're in it for life, and it's a job that no one else can ever truly understand until they're a mother themselves.

That's why it's words of wisdom from other mothers that are often the most helpful and most poignant when we need them the most. These little bits of wisdom and inspiration we pass amongst ourselves are gems that can pep us up and pull us through when we need it, and make us tear up with joy when we sit back and look at our kids with awe and overwhelming love. 

Here are 13 quotes you'll totally get if you're a mom. Pass them along to the moms you know, and let us know which are your favorites.
