It is kind of funny to see how parents react to the messes their children make. Some let their children play and at the end go and clean the mess up. Others are of the type that clean up the messes as they are created.
I fall into that latter category. I see the messes that children create like oil spills. With that in mind I try and attack the mess immediately, because, like an oil spill, even the smallest mess will quickly grow and require a major cleanup operation.
