17) The photo of an adorably frazzled 5-year-old girl on her first day back to school has gone massively viral on Facebook, though her mother is still mystified by how the youngster got so messy in the first place. Last week, Jillian Falconer of East Renfrewshire, Scotland, picked up her daughter Lucie from her first day of a new academic year and could barely believe the state she was in. In a hilarious side-by-side image shared to social media, little Lucie looked pristine in a “before” photo, proudly sporting her school uniform of a black sweater and skirt paired with a white oxford shirt, striped tie and matching hair bow, plus black knee socks and patent-leather Mary Janes. The “after” was a different story. Photo: Barrhead News
