This 5-Year-Old Is All of Us in Her Before and After First-Day-of-School Photos


Kelly O’ Brien is my hero. Last year she got her daughter ready for her first day at school, with a trendy little outfit that includes a tutu skirt, denim jacket, trainers and a bow. Then, before she sets off she takes the obligatory first day of school photo as she heads out the door, with a big smile on her face ready to take on the world. Franky Meyer’s first day at school.

When she meets Franky off the bus after school she snaps another photo which tells an entirely different story.

And then Kelly goes off script and posts both photos to Imgur, and now they’re going viral.

Here’s five year old Franky ‘before’.


And here we see her ‘after’.
