Dear Ms. Demeanor,
My neighbor's door is covered in their kids' artwork. It's not that I don't like kids (or their artwork), it's just that it's starting to look messy (and spreading beyond their doors and onto the hallway walls). Is there a nice way to ask them to be a bit more minimalist? I don't want to come across as a rude/child-intolerant, but it's getting on my nerves!
