Dating and the single mom

I went out on a date during the week for the first time. My kids are finally old enough to be left alone.   We were having a really great time but I had to cut it short because I don't like leaving the kids alone for more than a couple of hours.  The kids were already in bed and I have a finished basement so I invited him in for a drink. 

Now I feel like a terrible mother.  Is it bad that I had a man in the house while the kids were upstairs sleeping?  All we did was sit on the couch and watch a movie then he left.

Thoughts?

 I dont see that your a terrible mom. Your children were attended to upstairs and you were having a drink and watched a movie no big deal. I hope you had a great time!! :)

My thought is that you did nothing wrong. The kids were home, in bed and the two of you watched a movie. It's not like you were drinking, drugs and having sex all over the place.
