Mom shares hilarious before and after photos of daughter's first day of school

Posted: Updated:

Starting a new school year can be rough.

Lucie, a 5-year-old student from Glasgow, Scotland, came home from her first of school looking a bit different than she did when her mother sent her off that morning, Yahoo reports. 

The girl's mom, Jillian Falconer, told Barrhead News she took pictures of her daughter before and after the big day.

The first image shows Lucie looking prim and proper in her pressed uniform, rocking a big smile and perfectly combed hair adorned with a bow. The second photo shows Lucie as her mother picked her up, with a  disheveled uniform, messy hair and weary look on her face. 

The comical photos have since racked up 25,000 reactions and over 14,000 shares on Facebook. Some parents posted similar photos of their own children returning from school.

But despite Lucie's appearance, she told her mother the school day was rather uneventful.
