We really try to not be bossy with our grown kids. We ask ahead of time if they need help with something being fixed while we're in town so Dad brings tools. We feel free to jump in and clean dishes or mend broken household items... those kinds of things. I saw myself commenting on messy toys everywhere - so I have stopped. I pick up here and there but have learned to live with the way they live. They now realize they have too many toys/books and with baby 2 coming they have been storing and rotating toys. We want to be welcome when we visit - we don't ever want them to feel we're intruding. "Anything we can help with" is always a good approach.
