Rubber banding or dumping me?

I've been dating someone a little over two months now, see each other once or twice a week (we both have custody of our kids), always really great dates. He has been calling me, texting me or e-mailing me every day, usually nothing special, just a check in.
Saturday we had a great date. As we were ending it, he suggested we get together on Sunday to take my dog for a nature walk. I said ok, he said he'd call. He did call Sunday morning, and texted me a few times while he was doing some shopping for his kids. Then a text late that night saying sorry about the walk...basically he blew it off, which surprised me because he has always been very good about keeping his word.
A text late Monday night and then nothing since then.
So what the heck is going on here? Is this the classic rubber banding (I'm not so sure I believe this is a real thing or an excuse for bad behavior) or am I being dumped?
Yes, I know I shouldn't freak out because it's only been two days, but this is very uncharacteristic for this guy, so I am a little confused to say the least.
I get advice to call and say WTF, or advice to sit back and do nothing. While I would like to sit back and do nothing, how long is this supposed to go on for? How am I supposed to feel about this behavior? I mean, I have been "trained" (for lack of a better word) to expect daily contact, so when it gets pulled away (and I don't even get a response to something I sent) what do I do?
