Planting the Learning Seeds with Hayley Pearson

Planting the Learning Seeds with Hayley Pearson

I am the co-creator of Adelady, a website, TV show on Channel Nine and magazine sharing the best of South Australia. I have two little boys, Austin (8) and Alfie (5) and a puppy Peggy, oh and one husband... Jimmy.  I have been in radio for 17 years and radio will always be in my blood but my career dreams have evolved, and I am now doing exactly what I have always wanted to do, and have my own business with Adelady. I have a super supportive husband and together we have managed to juggle and balance everything all at once... but somehow it works! 
 



 

1. My favourite picture book for little learners is …

My Kind by Eddie Betts! Not only is Eddie a star footy player and someone my kids look up to, he's also an amazing father and author. My Kind is all about spreading kindness and that's all I want for my children... to be kind! 

2. Something I’ve learnt on my parenting journey so far… 

To make sure you have a great 'village' of mums who you can talk to about absolutely anything. My friends (with bubs) have saved me from being super anxious many times and made me feel normal. Always be real and if you are struggling or worried about something , chances are you're not alone and talking about it with a friend, might be all you need. 

3. My go to nourishing meal that is super easy and the family loves … 

I do a 'progessive picky plate' where we start with all the really healthy things like veggies and fruits then once they eat that, they get cheeses and meats, then warm bread. So they know to get the 'yummy' things they have to eat the veggies first! 

4. An important learning seed I wish I could plant in every child …

Always be kind and stand up for those who might not have a voice. 

5. I’m the best version of myself … 

When I find balance. I love being a mum more than anything (it's the greatest thing I have ever achieved) but I also need a creative outlet to fill my bucket. Doing what I love creatively, being the best mum to my two boys (and puppy Peggy) and a great partner to my husband... that's when I feel like I can do anything!
