    Seriously it's a freaking all-expenses paid holiday to attend a once in a lifetime type event. You'd be mad not to go. To me, 1st birthdays are no big deal - the kid certainly won't even remember or care who was or wasn't there. Take a break and just enjoy yourself - you deserve it!

    No question about it, go, and have an awesome time!

    For anyone to suggest that a child will miss out by not having their mother there for a 1st birthday is laughable. All the baby cares about on their birthday is being fed, having a bum changed, and getting some attention .. aka the same thing as the day before and the day after the birthday. All of these things can be achieved by the other parent/siblings/extended family/friends.

    You have to love the double standards where a man can go away for work, or for pleasure and the woman should be supportive of that, but god forbid if the woman wants to do the same thing.

    You do not give up yourself when you become a mum.

    Go and enjoy OP - how exciting

    Have fun on your trip. That sort of trip doesn't excite me but obviously it excites you. We will be in Hawaii for our baby's first birthday but she will be with us along with our son.

    ps. Jax appears to be a moron on the show. Hope he is nicer in real life.

    To answer your original question OP - no personally I wouldn't go, unless I could take the family with me.

    It's not about missing the birthday as such. I just couldn't leave such a young bubba for that long and travel to the other side of the world. If something were to happen, you are so far away. That's also a long time at that age to be separated from mum.

    This is just my opinion and feelings though! I'm certainly not saying it's wrong for you to go, just that I wouldn't. If you are comfortable with it, then don't worry about what anyone else says. Go and enjoy yourself & the experience.

    Thanks everyone I'm glad the majority have my back.

    I know a lot if kids get separation anxiety but when dh has been home he is basically like a stay at home dad so I have a feeling they won't miss me much and it's why I'm comfortable leaving them in his hands but I will miss them and I will be calling a lot!!

    Have a fantastic time! Honestly there's no harm in you going and no one will suffer because of it, so have a great time.

    I like the joint birthday idea too! Birthday celebrations are moved from the actual day all the time.
