What kinds of things are acceptable excuses to miss an event that you said you were going to attend less than 2 hours before event is set to begin?

I had a playdate/brunch at my house yesterday and bought enough food for everyone only to have almost half the "yes" responders back out morning of.  Where kids are involved, I realize things happen but I took a few excuses a bit poorly, especially since they all know I am moving in less than 2 weeks and I'll probably never get to see most of them again.

#1 was "I've been up with E since 6:30am.  I'm too tired now so I won't make it" 

#2 was "O had a nightmare last night and had trouble falling back asleep.  We're staying home today"

Is it only me who feels like if you stayed home every time your child cost you a little sleep that you'd never do anything?  My son has been up at 5:30 am for the last week (adjusted poorly to the time change) and while I'm kinda bummed about it, it hasn't made me miss anything I would normally do.

TL:DR - I'm pouting about people who canceled on me last minute.  Validate me?
