Yep it's an adult price for 2yo plus. Melb - Brisbane it's pretty $$$. Mum has offered to pay for dd.
How do other big families manage this sort of thing? My cousin has 5 kids and lives in WA (rest of family on the east coast) she often travelled with one or two kids at a time.
It's hard to have one on one time with so many.

I agree with your DH too. Having helped my mum recover from neurosurgery let me tell you the last thing you'll need is extra kids around. I also think it's unfair to your other two, and that DD won't have much of a holiday, not enough to warrant missing school for anyway.

Wow I really am at odds with popular opinion. Hmmm not what I expected

Hmm, missing a week of school is a big deal IMO. If she is sailing along she might not be after missing a week, and it sets a bad precedent.

I only have one child so I can't offer much advice, but personally if this was my mum and she asked for DD to come I'd take her. My DD was around my mum a lot after she had surgery (nothing as serious though) a couple of years ago and mum said it helped her a lot, cheered her up etc.
I hope everything goes well for your mum

Sorry but I wouldn't take her. Your mum will need as much rest to recover as she can get and you don't want her feeling like she has to pay attention to your daughter when she isn't up to it

We are flying up in November and got flights for $59 each way but 2 of our children will be under 2 yrs so we don't have to pay for them. Works out to be about $500 in total. I think that's pretty reasonable really, and usually out tax/family tax refund pays for it.
