A mother has captured hilarious photos of her daughter before and after her first day of school.

Lucie Falconer, five, from Glasgow, Scotland, looked prim and proper in her uniform for her first day of school as she posed for a photo with her big brother.

She looked excited to be heading off for her first day, showing off her beaming smile, shiny shoes and the bow in her hair.

But in a matter of hours, the Neilston Primary student was no longer bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.

After school Lucie came home looking tired and dishevelled, as she lugged her unicorn backpack

Mother-of-four Jillian Falconer, from Glasgow captured hilarious before and after photos of her daughter’s first back at school. Before school, Lucie, five, looked excited to be in her uniform but later she came home looking tired and dishevelled, as she lugged her unicorn backpack

Her mother Jillian Falconer captured a hilarious after photo showing her daughter looking like she had a rough first day.

In the picture, a tired-looking Lucie lugs her unicorn backpack by its strap.

The schoolgirl’s ribbon is out of place, her tie undone and her socks uneven.

Her mother Jillian told Metro: ‘She had her skirt round her ankles almost and a bow at the back of her hair.

‘I think her clothes were too big slightly and she was pleased to see her friends.’

‘I did say to her, “What did you do today?” and got usual reply all children give, “Oh, nothing much,” the mother-of-four said.

‘She’s the smallest and is a wee madame. But she is normally very shy. Except when she’s around her brothers.’

Ms Falconer added that her little girl was quite tired after a big first day and went to bed earlier than usual.

Students in Glasgow broke up for summer holidays in late June and returned to school on Wednesday, August 14.

Most children around the UK are in the final weeks of their summer holiday and will return to school in the first week of September.
