If it truely just happened once and nothing bad happened to them while you were gone.... let it go. The guilt is going to do nothing other than tear you apart. I would not feel the need to tell anyone.... just make sure it NEVER happens again under any circumstances. There is nothing so important as to risk leaving your children unattended (at those ages) for.

Don't beat yourself up over your mistake. Simply learn from it and move on. The fact that you are consumed w/ guilt at the moment means you realize it was wrong. Guilt is a good thing to have, but only if you LEARN from it as opposed to dwell on it.

I don't get it. You made a poor choice. Luckly, nothing bad came of it. You won't do it again.
The end and move on .... why would you tell your sons' father? Why guilty? Guilt is a usless emotion, save that it inspires us to not do again whatever we fet bead about.

There is not a parent anywhere that has not made a few poor choices and mistakes.

Some end badly, your situation did not. Be glad, be happy, hug your kid
