The Tom Petty Effect

A few weeks ago now, Rosie was crying one morning and after about 20 seconds of trying to comfort her I'd exhausted all options. So, I resorted to playing some music from my phone, I just hit play on the last thing I was listening to and Tom Petty's 'I Won't Back Down' and 'Free Fallin' were the tracks of choice. She instantly stopped crying and actually gave an inquisitive smile, coincidence I thought and left it there...The next time I was trying (and failing) to calm her down I tried it again, and within seconds of the I Won't Back Down intro she stopped crying again. This has now become my first port of call when settling her and has yet to fail me. I decided to try and capture the moment next time she cried and share the results in this post.
