13 Hilariously Appropriate Sympathy Cards for Parents

Dear Hallmark:

The last time I was browsing in the card aisle, I noticed a startling lack of sympathy cards appropriate for parents. You're missing out on a very large market of exhausted and overwhelmed consumers.

I hope you don't mind, but I've taken the liberty to draw up a few new designs for parent sympathy cards you may want to consider in the future.

Please see the attached list of suggestions.

Sincerely,
Jenny from Unremarkable Files

A friend of mine wisely observed that people resist purchasing minivans because they feel like they won't be hip anymore, and yet most of us were never hip to begin with.

Maybe buying the minivan feels like admitting defeat.
