The first day of school is a roller coaster ride of emotions for everyone involved.
You're excited, nervous, scared, happy, and exhausted. Back-to-school photos often capture the thrill of going back to class, but Kelly O'Brien's photos of her daughter, Franky Meyer, show what an emotional day it can be.
O'Brien took photos of her 5-year-old daughter before and after her first day of preschool last year, and they are hilarious relatable. O'Brien recently posted the two pics on Reddit for those who are heading back to class. The first one shows Franky with a big grin as she poses in her school outfit.
The after photo captures the day's emotion with one expression.
That is a face we all know too well. It's the look many of us probably had after our first day of school, as well as our first day at a new job, or after a tough test.
Since the photo was uploaded to Reddit on September 1, it has been viewed a whopping 1.3 million times. Users are writing how they relate to hilarious photos.
Franky's face in the after pic may be full of emotion, but O'Brien wrote on Reddit that she actually had a good time at school. O'Brien said Franky was initially scared to ride the bus, but she enjoyed preschool.
"My daughter excitedly told me all about her first day at pre-k and she loved it all year."
Franky starts Kindergarten next week, so O'Brien is interested to see what she will think of that. O'Brien better make sure she has the camera ready. That face expresses more than words.
