What should I do? Advice Please...

My 7 month old has been SO fussy ALL DAY!! I had a baby shower to attend today, when we got there, he began to cry hysterically. I tried everything. He is teething, so he was throwing a fit. I finally apologized and told everyone I had to go because my DS was just really upset.

I drove home, and he fell asleep on the way home. He is sleeping in his Crib. My DH suggested that I go back to the baby shower. Should I? I feel so stupid because I feel like everyone was thinking that I am a bad mother because I couldnt calm my son down and I just left because I couldnt handle it anymore. UGH.......

I dont want to look stupidER if I go back. What do you think???
