Posting here for traffic.
Okay,I appreciate this is bad so I'm asking for how to move forward or if mn's out there has been in a similar situation.
Have been with DP for 4 yrs, he has two teenage DC - they are lovely. Unfortunately their DM had turned into a mentalist for the past 6 mths of the divorce negotiations (no OW). This has been a strain and things will settle I get that. BUT I'm on holiday and last night I drank too much and made a derogatory comment about the DM. (Because she's being such a pain in the arse atm ) However this was when DS1 (17) was sitting at the table
Sooo... any hand holds out there?? I feel like a twat, I know I was a twat and it was a twatish thing to launch into (I was stopped pretty soon by my SIL). I never want the DCs to feel conflicted - which has now happened thanks to me.
Just feeling like a bad cow x

Your stepson is 17 am sure he can handle it.

Tell your DS1 that. He will probably appreciate your honesty and humility.

Exactly what HerOtherHalf said
Admit you were a dick,apologise for any offence and tell him you won't do it again.

You aren't the first person to make such a slip up OP, so don't feel to awful, just don't do it again.Enjoy your holiday!

Yes, apologise to the DS and say you shouldn't have said that, and you won't do it again.
