Mad Men: Did Forgetting His Kids Make Don Draper a Bad Dad?

It was a call of shame rather than a walk for Don Draper in last night's episode of Mad Men. After a long (and hard to recall) celebratory evening for winning an advertising award, Don is snapped out of his slumber when Betty phones him to ask why he hasn't yet picked up their children. The hungover father of three fakes sick and spends the day dazed and confused on his sofa instead of with his offspring. Were his actions understandable or inexcusable?

I know my husband has bad memory but I wouldn't forgive him forget his own child to just party and get drunk. Don't even tell me about spending the night with another woman!

If they were safe with their mother, it still makes him irresponsible and unreliable but at least a little forgiveable since he wasn't worried for their wellbeing, but imagine they were waiting for him elsewhere...like after a birthday party or at the mall or at school? There's no excuse for forgetting your most precious possessions.
