Go!!!! Its a once in a lifetime thing and you would so totally regret it if you don't go.
There will be loads of birthdays to celebrate in the coming years. Just celebrate this one before/after you go.

Go, puppy guts! It's a second birthday... The wonderful thing about birthdays of small children is that they can be REARRANGED. The child will never ever ever never have any idea that the day they celebrated wasnt actually the anniversary of the day they were born.
Anyone who gives you shtick about going is neither your friend or rational. Go. And have a fantastic time, you have earned it

I would say go, your little one doesn't know when his birthday is so it will be more upsetting for you than for him.

Go and bring him back some awesome presents! As long as you celebrate his first birthday it does not really matter if it's on the actual day - my DS 1st birthday party was 2 weeks after the actual day so we could get the venue!

I say go as well. We rarely celebrate the kids birthdays on the actual day, unless it falls on a weekend, anyway.

I would go and celebrate the birthday before hand. My kids birthdays are 3 weeks apart and I celebrated my DS's 1st birthday about a week before is actual birthday. Think of it like this. Your bub isn't going to remember you weren't there for his birthday...YOU will remember not going on the trip of a life time. You may even come to resent the fact you gave up this trip for a birthday he wont remember. Put yourself first this once...lets all face it, mummys never do. Enjoy it.

It's not called once in a lifetime for.nothing! You will still celebrate the birthday as a family I think the actual day is irrelevant. GO!!

Haven't read the replies but I say go. I wouldn't pass up a once in a lifetime trip that I really wanted to go on. Life doesn't stop once you have kids, you can still do the things you want to do. It's not like you're going for 3 months or doing it six times a year. Go and enjoy!!
