I've got a boss who helps me try to advance in my career, while I appreciate this, sometimes she makes comments that hurt. The other day she said, "you are a strange one" and today, after I made an error in some paperwork she said "you are really absent minded for your age, what are you going to do when you have a child?" She means it in a joking way, that's how she is, but it still hurts. How can I point this out to her? Am I being too sensitive?

Please give me some advice, she's a good boss but this is wearing on me.
