Even when you're an adult, it's hard to remember to empty out your pockets before you wash your shorts or pants. When you're a carefree kid, it's darn near impossible.

Luckily kids have moms, who dutifully empty out their little one's pockets before tossing their clothing into the washer.

Redditor justgrant2009's mom actually saved all the things she found in his pocket when he was a boy. Then she presented the memories to him encased in a lamp on the occasion of his wedding. Check out this innovative gift, decades in the making.
