Counting the Seconds Till My Daughter was in Bed

As a first time father I remember things very vividly even down to the minute.  Jolene took four months off to bond with Johanna.  One of the first nights Jolene went back to work Johanna cried the entire night.  It was so bad that she finally fell asleep at 6:19 a.m.  I tried rocking her on her back, as well as her chest.  She wasn’t hungry.  She didn’t need to go to the bathroom.  Pedialax didn’t work. I paced back and forth trying not to step in the areas that creaked.  I tried music, nothing.  We have a tv in our room that I tried to distract her with.  Swaddling was of no use.  I even tried a car ride.  To this day she has only fell asleep in the car 4 times.  Her colic was so bad, it felt like my child was possessed by demons.  I too broke down crying.
