This Little Girl's Before-and-After First Day of School Photo Is 1 For the Dang Books

We've all been there. You head off to work dressed to the nines and return with your hair in a top knot looking a little . . . lackluster. Well Lucie, a girl from East Renfrewshire, Scotland, showed up to her first day of school looking cute as a button. But after a long day in the classroom she came back home, clearly having seen better days. Her mom, Jill, shared the hilarious before-and-after photos with local newspaper Barrhead News, and naturally it immediately went viral.

"She absolutely loves school and this was her first day in [primary 2] so she loved having her new things on," said Jill. "The wonders of primary two! The teachers are really good, they do a lot of active learning and things with them — so I take it it was down to that. She'd obviously had a really fun day."

Once Jill saw the state of her daughter she asked Lucie what she did on her first day back. Her response? "Nothing much." Sounds about right!
