I literally hear it several times each and every time I am out. I have toddler twins and a 3 month old baby. My older son is 12. It hits my last nerve when I hear those five words especially if I am already a bit stressed. I would like something cleaver to say. Nothing mean, maybe just to get my point across. I say things like " No, not really." or " Yeah, just a little bit." But can someone offer me something better PLEASE!!

Lol, you might not want to use a cleaver as a comeback. That could get messy.
How about "yes, my hands are full. Full of love." or just smile and keep going. I mean really, your op says you're stressed so I'm guessing your hands really ARE full. What's wrong with people acknowledging that?

I hear it all the time & I doubt people are saying it with the intention to be mean or anything. I get this on a daily basis & after they say that they usually ask if I would like some help such as getting groceries to the car or a nice compliment afterwards saying I'm a lucky woman. I don't mind it but if they are saying it to be mean & have some snide comment which has never happened to me then yeah I would not like it.
