ask them why. I find that usually (not always) people think they're being funny or witty and asking them why makes them stop and think a second about how what they're saying comes across.

We don't really get this about the amount of kids we have, but about them being all girls, so when someone says "poor dad" or "you have to try for a boy" I just ask why, like I understand why they would say something like that.

Occasionally when I've had a few too many comments like that I get snarky, but I like this one best.
