'Mum And Dad' Father's Day Card Goes Viral For All The Right Reasons
Father's Day is a day meant to celebrate dads for all they do for us, and finally we're getting a bit more inclusive when it comes to the choice of greeting cards available.
High street retailer Card Factory are celebrating all different types of dads this year, with a card that's quickly gone viral thanks to its unique words.
The front of the card reads: "Thank you for being a mum and dad to me. I know it's Father's Day, but you have been both a mother and a father to me...Like a mum, you've nurtured and comforted me, spent sleepless nights worrying over me and made sure I always had a home and place to belong. Like a dad, you've encouraged me, supported me, advised me and always made me feel safe, protected and confident..."
The card isn't just for the man of the house, it would also make a perfect thank-you for mums and basically anyone else who's played the role of a parent.
A pic of the card was uploaded to Facebook where it soon garnered a lot of attention.
One commenter said: "Aww how lovely this could be for an aunt or relative or foster carer too."
Another commented: "Love this."
More and more retailers are recognising that families come in all different forms.
Last year, Sainsburys was praised for selling same-sex Valentine's Day and Mother's Day cards.
Along with this Father's Day card, Card Factory are also selling cards for people wanting to recognise their two dads.
