If a woman wants to go to Hajj and her father as her mahram, and has the money to go to pay for Hajj, but she has small children, one the age of 4 years and twins the age 1 year, is she obligated to go to Hajj, or are the small children an excuse for her?

If the woman can leave the kids with her spouse (if his work schedule allows) or under the care of someone competent to care for them, then it becomes obligatory for her to go to Hajj. If finding a suitable caretaker is a challenge, then she is not obligated to embark on a journey to Hajj.
