To not feel guilty about this?

We're going to a bring an share BBQ tomorrow so I've been making a cheesecake most of the afternoon.
Anyway, DH wanted to go and buy a couple of things with ds(2). He wanted me to come as he wasn't feeling that confident about managing DS on his own(no idea why). I couldn't go as the cheesecake was in the oven and only had 20 minutes left. I did suggest going after, but DH wanted to go then.
So they went and have just returned. Apparently, it was a disaster as DS screamed the entire time and DH was so embarrassed he left without buying anything.
While I do feel for him, as it's unpleasant having a screaming toddler, I don't feel that bad, as he needs to experience this by himself!!

Sorry, AIBU for not feeling guilty about not going?

Nope! No guilt at all. Definitely not BU.

Nope, he needs to learn to deal with him.

sounds like it would have been easier for him to just go on his own while you entertained the toddler at home.

Well he needs to learn how to deal with a screaming toddler while out in public, doesn't he? I see plenty of mums in Tesco with a bawling child, getting the shopping done in spite of snotty looks, as opposed to being embarrassed and walking out.
