When you check your kids pockets before doing the laundry, what was the weirdest/ funniest/ most disgusting/ oddest thing you found so far?

Until now there're just hankies with big bogies (luckily), but I heard of dead frogs, sticky liquorish with hair on it and squashed blueberries.

  • The worst was a banana peel. I asked later why it was in his pocket and he said because there wasn't a trashcan around....

    Oh well, at least he remembered my lessons on not littering!

  • My 3yr old had a frog!!! Thankfully it was still alive. =) My 10 yr old had a gooey caramel. 5yr old had a tampon. Oh, and once I found 2 $100 bills in my now 10 yr olds pocket! He was 2 at the time. LMAO kids put the wierdest things in their pockets.

  • When my son was in his teens just starting high school, I found a letter from a girl practically giving herself to him if he wanted, I thought it would be something to show him when he gets older, he is now 23, I am waiting for the right time to do this, lol!

  • Wow, Caoimhe_Oona, I want to do your kid's laundry, talk about a tip! LOL The weirdest thing I have found was a handful of shell casings. We had moved out to the country and our youngest went around in the woods collecting them. Before we had lived there it was used as a shooting range so she had at least 50 in her pockets.
