Take one young child, add a room full of water faucets and you've got the recipe for a huge mess. Keeping an eye on your children will not only keep them out of trouble, it will help prevent injuries as well. Kids like to climb, and slick surfaces don't make good playgrounds. So, while you're in there, it's a good time to teach them about cleaning up after themselves in the bathroom. Small things like flushing the toilet when they're done and making sure tissues and toilet paper land in the proper receptacles will not only make your life easier, it will make for a lovely little house guest.
