It’s the little things

I realised this morning as I made S’s bottle that it is the small, inconsequential rituals that bring the most peace. I continue to make his bottles with cooled, boiled water. I know he’s old enough for water from the tap but I love the process of boiling the kettle, filling the pyrex jug, waiting for it too cool and then filling his bottle. I had never thought about it until yesterday but I realise there’s a reason I haven’t been going to the tap. I am attached to this ritual and to the idea that the water he consumes is clean and almost handmade by me.
