As soon as Kate got back from her all expenses paid TLC trip to Australia and New Zealand, she dropped off her eight kids and jetted to the Big Apple to see ‘Jersey Boys!’

Kate Gosselin had a weekend all to herself! The mom-of-eight spent two weeks traveling with her eight Gosselettes for her TLC show Kate Plus 8, and clearly it was plenty of kid time! A source tells HollyBaby.com that right when Kate got back, she left her kids at their Reading, Pa., home and headed to NYC Jan. 15, to catch Jersey Boys!

Kate and the kids return from Down Under!

Instead of getting her children, ten-year-old twins Cara and Mady, and six-year-old sextuplets Joel, Collin, Aaden, Hannah, Leah, and Alexis ready for school, since they missed 14 days, she opted for a glam night on the town. We told you that Kate’s ex-husband Jon Gosselin didn’t want the children missing school so he filed a motion in court but was denied.

Do you think Kate should have stayed home to get her kids ready for school?
