Anyone with a curious child knows that they have a tendency to pick up whatever strikes their fancy and shove it into their pockets. You just never know what you're going to find in there! That's why Lisa Bauso came up with the brilliant idea of documenting the items found in the clothing of her then 7-year-old daughter, Bella.

Over a decade ago, Bauso and her husband Joe spent a year saving the stash of stuff their daughter would bring home in her pockets every day. She photographed each batch and compiled the snapshots, resulting in the hilarious and adorable book, "Bella's Pockets." The book documents every item that was found by the young girl (who is now 18!), along with captions that Bella herself wrote when she was 12 years old.

Is this a genius idea or what?! I just love that this project has literally been years in the making and that the entire family has worked on it at some point or another. Plus, the concept is so cute and something that I'm pretty sure every parent can relate to.

The best part though are the photos themselves. You'll laugh out loud when you see some of the completely random items Bella once carried in her pockets, which Bauso has rightly compared to "mini museums." Check out the pictures of what the mom found in her daughter's clothing years ago, as well as the explanatory captions written by Bella herself:

Toothpaste, stick, plastic rabbit

What was little Bella doing with a mini-sized toothpaste bottle in her pocket? "I whittled that [stick] with a pocket knife. And the tiniest little toothpaste -- it was really cute," she wrote in the caption.
