Katie Munnik, a mother and writer from the United Kingdom, perfectly summed up what having a 4-year-old son is like simply by emptying out his pants pockets. In a now-viral tweet, Katie shared the treasures she found in her son's pocket on display, and as you can image, oodles of parents can relate.
She included the sweet caption, "Found in the pockets of a four-year-old's winter coat before washing" alongside the photo. Unsurprisingly, the tweet has amassed 14,000 likes and 1,800 retweets.
So what did this little boy's collection entail? Exactly what you'd expect for the most part. His treasures included twigs, a bottle cap, a mini plastic snake that once belonged to his older sibling, rocks, and a beat up Pokémon card among other things.
Parents in the Twitter world were quick to comment on his collection and suggest ways Katie might be able to preserve his keepsakes:
Perhaps your boy might enjoy making a #NatureTable? Back in my teaching days, the pockets of many of my class would be full of such treasures being brought in for the nature table. I've been on a bit of a mission to get them back See #ClassroomNatureTables #BringBackNatureTables

Don't think I've ever grown out of this... It's tradition to bring something home in our pockets when we go on holiday... Interesting rocks, sticks, seashells & an obligatory disco ball. Here's our (very edited) collection #adventuretreasure pic.twitter.com/WuMrPUz9YC

And one man even went as far as complimenting her parenting skills:
Good to see the proof of a child getting out into the wide world and not plonked in front of tv
The world is there to find and discover

Seriously, does it get any sweeter than this?
