Hey! Welcome to a bonus interview episode of Dogs are Smarter Than People, the usually quirky podcast that gives writing tips and life tips. I’m Carrie Jones and with me today is Alyson Pelletier Seegmueller, a dance mom who is used to driving 14 hours every day but now she’s stuck at home because of Covid-19, I think.
A former Mainer living in Pennsylvania now and her motto is basically, “I can’t, my daughter has dance.”
In every post Allyson has, it’s super obvious how much she loves her family.
I asked her if she thought there was a certain vulnerability that happens when you love someone so much? Check out her answers and more.

“[Motherhood is] the biggest gamble in the world. It is the glorious life force. It’s huge and scary—it’s an act of infinite optimism.” – Gilda Radner
