On a cold winter night in 1983, three days before Christmas a child was born, I was born, and I often wondered how and what my mother felt the first time she held me in her arms. I tried to imagine the feelings that she would have felt, and constantly analysed our bond

21 years later, on the 18th of January 2004, at 11.45am my son was born. And, when I held him in my arms for the first time, I felt everything I imagined that my mother felt just a MILLION times more intense… And as he fell asleep nestled in my bosom all the things that he needed and unknowingly expected from me ran through my mind… The terms and conditions that come attached to this brand new being. And as I go over them in my mind, at first I feel suffocated, unsettled and VERY scared. But the longer I hold him, and look at him, the fear goes away, and I begin to breathe because I realise that the ‘Terms and Conditions’ are not a set of rules that I am compelled to do. The ‘Terms and Conditions’ are all the things that I naturally wanted for him. I do these things without even thinking, it’s like breathing.

Why are they the most inspiring ‘Terms and Conditions’ in the world?

Because you acquire them when you bring a new life into the world and you sign it with your heart the very first time you hold that little baby.

These ‘Terms and Conditions’ are what that new life inspires you to be and do even before they were even born.
