I haven't been to the show since I had one child who was a baby. So, quite some time.
My eldest child has given up on asking to go.
My youngest doesn't know enough about it.
DD is nagging and nagging. All her friends go apparently.
I really don't think I can afford it. Even if I can, I think I would resent spending so much money on it. Also, crowds.
But... I guess I can't avoid it forever, so I am thinking about it.
I would like to hear from people who have gone to the show with kids.
How much do you spend on the day, for how many people?
How can I spend as little as possible?
Are the crowds really that hideous?
I mentioned to my mother that it would be more doable if I took one child per year. She said that that's mean! Is it?
Overall, is it worth the money and effort? Would you recommend going, or staying away?
I wanted to bribe them this year with a trip to the Gold Coast instead, in the holidays, but I've just been doing some sums and I don't think I can afford it. :/
Money is annoying.
