Pockets, glorious pockets.
January 28, 2011

Things I have found in the laundry ever since Charlotte found out what pockets are for:

    -  Soggy bits of pinecone
    -  Wine bottle cork from my parents’ house
    -  Clods of mud
    -  Dried up leaves
    -  Pieces from her transportation puzzle
    -  Her favorite pair of socks
    -  Avocado that she was saving for snack time later
    -  Coins
    -  The spare car key
    -  Sections from her wooden play food
    -  Dust bunny treasures
    -  Blades of grass with a slug mashed in
    -  Bright orange flower petals
    -  A handful of cat food
    -  Glitter poof balls off a holiday card
    -  Two paperclips
    -  Lots and lots of dirt
    -  A living, wriggling earthworm
    -  A gum wrapper found on the street
    -  My chapstick

    This serves as a good heads up for me. :) I figure Charlotte is about a month ahead of my daughter. Thanks!

    HAHA! Too cute. I keep putting things in Jude’s pockets FOR him and he always seems to forget they exist… maybe it’s because his shirts are always untucked and cover them? who knows.

    Alicia - Charlotte forgets even when she puts stuff in her pockets.  I think the only reason she’s obsessed with pockets lately is because of how much time Donald and I spend with our hands shoved in our own pockets lol.  Never noticed it until she started walking around with her hands in her pockets all the time!

    Oh my goodness, that’s too funny and cute! I love that she’s collecting all her “treasures” in her pockets. Kids are amazed by the simplest things, it’s so great.

    That’s hilarious!I especially love the slug.  My nephew used to need his “Tissoo” in his pocket at all times.  He’d show it off, but if he could not find it, the world would end.

    Better in the pockets than in her mouth (where my son would put it - in his world, pockets are for money only…everything else goes in the mouth).
    But Charlotte does look mighty proud of those pockets. Cute!

    LOL Isn’t it fun being a mom??  Before my daughter was born, I probably would’ve freaked out at half of the stuff I do on a daily basis now! Poop, pee, spit up, worms…etc!  I can’t believe the worm was still alive when you got to the laundry! How cute that she keeps things in there for later though!  Smart girl!

    What a great list! Those pics just underscore the importance of pockets. (Hey….great book title! The Importance of Pockets…..;-)

    Plastic Surgeon - It’s probably just luck that I did laundry the day after she picked up the worm.  Otherwise it probably wouldn’t have made it!

    I love, love, LOVE that Charlotte stuffs her hands in her pockets. She looks like such a toughie in her jeans, with her hands shoved in the pockets. Your daughter is pretty freakin cool for her age.
