    Yep I'd miss out on that for my child's first birthday or 2nd, 3rd ,4th or 9th. Who are all those people to you at the end of the day? No one !

    Go.

    And life is short. If this is a once in a lifetime trip for you, then go. And enjoy.

    Not that LA does much for me any more these days, but if it was somewhere in Europe (did someone say the South of France?) I would be in, so whatever floats your boat I say.

    I have no idea if my parents celebrated my first birthday, I assume they did, but in all honesty, if they celebrated it on the day or a few days before or after, well it made no difference to my life.

    Go.

    I haven't read any of the replies yet as I didn't want to be influenced in my response.

    No way in heck I'd miss any of my children's 1st, 18th, or 21st birthday parties. A 1 year old is still a baby, I can't comprehend how a mum could leave her baby to go overseas... Let alone on bubba's birthday.

    How sad for your baby if his mother isn't around on his first birthday. Will bubba, in years to come wonder why mumma wasn't their for the first birthday? Probably not (i dont remember my first birthday)....Unless the trip overseas is indicative of other issues such as mum putting work first or mum needing a break from family life.

    I don't think your hubby not being there for your kiddo's birthdays justifies your trip. Two wrongs don't make a right.

    I'm going to get shot for saying this but after reading all the posts I'm worried that with the boob job, mentioning hubby just finishing a lengthy FIFO stint, going to Heff's mansion etc I'm worried that you are perhaps needing a break from family life.

    Look after yourself and please see your GP if you need to talk to someone.

    I don't think my husband ever did anything wrong?!
    He was away working for our future same as I am going to have opportunities and doors opened for me in ways I never thought possible and only dreamed about for my career.

    I can fathom going away because my husband helped make my babies and we are a team so I can happily leave knowing they are in the best hands possible what a shame you couldn't do the same!

    It's a tough one but I think I'd go. I haven't made a huge deal of Dd's bdays so far. She's only two and whilst we've had parties and gone places (wildlife park, Sea World), she's none the wiser! I would miss her heaps but I think it's not a bad thing x

    I don't think there's a problem with needing a 'break' though. Maybe this is just what op needs to re-charge?

    Of course I'm needing a break. I have up my life at 17 when I fell pregnant and have been married, had a business, and gone on to have another beautiful child but I love my kids and my husband.

    It's time for me to do what I want in my career that I gave up and help the body that I sacrificed and its starting to happen I don't feel bad about it and I certainly don't need to see a gp because I'm looking forward to a reward for working so hard!

    If, as an adult, a persons biggest issue is that their mummy missed their first birthday cos they were off doing something for themselves, then Id say that child had a good life. If my child complained about that as an adult Id tell them to grow up and get over it.
