10 ‘First Day of School’ Before and After Photos


If you’ve logged on to any kind of social media over the past couple weeks, even for a second, there’s no doubt you’ve seen an endless stream of “back to school” photos from all your friends who have kids.

And, hey, they’re pretty adorable!

By now, it’s a time-honored tradition to post a pic of “Lucy’s First Day of Second Grade” or “Timmy’s First Day of Kindergarten.”

But there’s a flipside to all of this joy…it’s what the kids look (and feel) like after that big first day of school. And it is pure exhaustion and trauma. Take a look for yourself:
