Nicole Lauren was babysitting three adorable triplet babies when she encountered an interesting dilemma. Nothing was wrong with any of the boys--but one of them reached an important milestone under her watch.
One of them, named Michael, took his first steps. And the parents had missed it.

At a loss of what to do, she took to Facebook to ask parent friends what they thought her next move should be.
She wrote, "My question is, if you have a child in daycare or with a nanny and they hit a milestone, would you want to know right away? I’m torn between telling them and acting oblivious so they can think they saw his first steps."
Responses were widely mixed, with some people preferring to know ahead of time, and others wanting to be kept in the dark.
After taking some time of consideration, Lauren decided to ultimately tell the parents.

They both told her that since they were working parents, they did understand there was a chance they could miss a milestone like that. And they were okay with that--under one condition.
Lauren said, “They just asked that I try to record it for them.”
What do you think? Should parents know about milestones if they weren't there to see it?
