So what's your sore spot?
Hmm. I don't really have an issue that raises my BP. I guess if I had to reach I'd say people in general who tell me they can't imagine how I "handle" working with three kids. It usually feels patronizing. But really doesnt bother me too much. I'm pretty happy with our choices and our set up at the moment so I'm fairly duck like:)
Ive got a couple....My first one is that people are amazed that my children are all well behavied most of the time.
It has to be comments about staying home to raise your kids said as if anyone who doesn't stay home doesn't raise theirs.
That is so sad, that poor little girl.
I am in the fortunate position of being too new to parenting for anyone to say much to me personally that I would find upsetting. The closest thing is people telling me when they think I should have my next child and how many children I should have, but I find that more amusing than annoying.
My aunts and uncles want me to have something like six kids. Um, and with what money am I supposed to raise them? Maybe everyone should send me a dollar - I'll go make my website, LOL. ;-)
My sore spot is working

Oooh, I have a couple:

I am quite confident in my choices, so it doesn't make me question what I do, but it ticks me off, I don't tell other people how to parent, or how to do their job, and
