And Wow we're back we're back, welcometo season Tas season to of accidental parenting, and you know what they said.This was would never last who said that no o t kno they it'the collective, thinWut last, so welcome back season to accidental parenting. The timing ofthis is quite interesting because we're right in the middle of what some mightcall the worst episode of Netflix's Black Mayror ever corona by Ra, thecorona varis quarantine stay at home murder pretty much everywhere. All theschools have been cancelled, so all parents are also now teachers, yeah, wl,home schooling. Well, I mean some more than other kids. Do our kids work oncomputers? I don't know if they do schoolwork on computers, they do alittle they'll do a little bit of schoolwork and then a lot of justplaying. We actually it's been. It's been a crazy couple of weeks. Few weekswith all the kids at home after we took our break from season one of accidentalparenting. We had springbreak here, and that was what bin March Uhhuh and justbefore we got out of spring break. So, just before they went back to school,we get an email from their school saying, hey we're closing for anothercouple of weeks wel. They said until further notice, Wein, yeah, andate yeah,and then that would be one of our children requesting screen time as wespeak. At least we have limits on it, but they just request more and weusually give it to him yeah. So, as we were saying, these schools send an email, hey we'regoing to be closed and that led to longer closures and now school isclosed for the rest of the school year. Yeah. So parks are closed. In fact,this was heartbreaking. For us parks were close, no pickle ball, novolleyball. I miss that yeah. That was our Saturday morning Friday eveningSaturday evening activities and now we can't do that so, but people are stuckinside so maybe they'll, listen to our podcast Mathah. There's nothing Bu EANyeah an unless you're in a beautiful state like Arizona where the weather'sNice we actually did set up a picklebalk Badmeuntain a Badman we'vebeen playing a lot of bad men. Badmint is a very difficult word to say,because it's bad minton now Iju say badminton. Oh know, you got a pronouncethe end. It's badminton badminton not going to do it. It's like cost. CoBadminton. I, though you're going to say badminton, is a very difficultsport to play. Then you're talking about how to say the word. Well, it's avery fun sports. Its like we've, been playing with our older girls andthey've, been getting ther, get better better, they can serve, they can we canvolley every now and then it's a good time. Yeah. It's been we're spending alot more time with our kids. Now that we're forced to yeah yeah, which iswhich is good and bad they're great kids, but they still drive US crazy.Sometimes we had actually, I have said actually like four times so far. Inthis episode I apologize to those listeners. We had a home transformationwhile we've started this crew, you've been doing some projects, I've beensewing, I've been making masks and gowns and Col has been adding a lot ofshell to very worthwhile project shelving and the Organization of makingmasks and gowns Yes for Corona virus. You want to explain, what's going onthere with the masks and gowns sure yeah, so there are a lot of skillednursing facilities in the valley that did not have a stark pile of supplies.So as soon as this hit, they were not able to order more supplies and theywere immediately in trouble, so they reached out to friends and familyasking if people could make gowns and masks and I've been organizing thenonprofit I worke, for we had to close to the public. So some of thosevolunteers were able to start sewing from home, and I have probably fortyvolunteers now who are sewing and surging and cutting and we're all doingeverything we can to get mass and gowns to these facilities because they arethei. Residents are older and already sick, a lot of them and they have covidpatients that are coming in and they're at risk and they need this protectionequipment. It's really been cool to see...

...this effort through through my eyes,being here at home. My Office is upstairs in our house and I can seeevery time someone drops a bag full of fabrida picks up. Some finished masksit's at least a few times a day. I joke with Abbera that she's got a drug run,going on Weing cars coming going, but they've got a system set up where theyhave someone drop off a bag. Another person comes up and picks out the bag.It's quite the set up. They have, and it's really cool to see that collectiveeffort and what about your projects making sholds? Yes, also a veryworthwhile endeavor Ma cocerm for the kids yeah. So first, let's talk aboutthe classroom because that came first, I have for a long time. We've had aplayroom upstairs in our house and I'm not a huge fan of the playroom becausethey never actually play in it and when they do, they leave it. Amessly andthey'll playi'll clean it up after hem, then they'll get their toys out and say:Don't put these away. We want to play with these and they don't come back tothose toys for like two weeks. So it's just always a battle of play versusclean. So I transformed their play room. I was sick of the kids having all oftheir homework their school computers on the kitchen, Tam on the kitchentable and every night we'd come home or not come home, come downstairs and beready for dinner and we'd have to get the kids to clear the table off, whichis a pain in the neck, to try to get kids to clean up at dinner time. So wetransformed the playroom into a little classroom. When you say we, I mee youso I transformed the playroom into a little classroom, put a couple ofruling desks in there that they can. You know fit two at to at a desk. Putsome file cabinets, cleaned up a lot of toys, and I was surprised that when Idid, this good will was still open. I was able to drop off a lot of toys andwhen I droped things off, the donation line at Goodwell was so long yeaheveryone's doing hom, prod everyhere else, IK, O Masi clean out the houseget res. In addition to that, I've also added some shelving in a few of ourclosets, so you know how every closet, if you're not using it as a bedroom,it's like a storage, closet, you're, not hanging clothes in it, but it's setup to hang close, so I've been adding some shelves making it a little bitmore efficient for our purposes. Yeah. It's amazing! So now ewere everythingso well organized. If I wasn't OCD before coronavirus, it's official yeah,it's made you currentof Arus has made you. So let's talk about some of ourplans for season to of actuaen IM eited about this we've beenthinking aboutthis. For a while, we know a lot of women who are entrepreneurs who havestarted businesses and some guys, but a lot of women right and really coolbusinesses, and so we want to interview them kind of in the style of the how Ibuilt this podcast where interview someone about how they started theirbusiness and but we are doing it from an accidental parenting perspectivelike how did you do this as a mom, with kids or as a dad with kids or if we endup entr interviewing any guys everyone I have scheduled as a mom but yeah ifthereare any guys, dode yeah same thing like how did you do this as a parentand still be able to be a good parent right with all that comes with being anentrepreneur?

We this is season to welcome toseason to it's exciting and I have Brook Giffin here with me for the firstepisode of season to say: Hallobrook, Hello. Thanks for having me welcome tothe podcast. I've been wanting to interview you for a while, but thisisecxually better, because we're going to do a series about moms who startbusinesses mom paners. If you will right up my alley, that's right up youralley, so you get to be our first, I'm excited. But first I want to introduce you and Ilike to do that kind of awkwardly. So can you tell us before you tell usanything else about you? Okay, what's the weirdest thing anyone's ever askedyou to cook, I wouldn't say that they've ever askedme to cook anything that weird, but we've had to sing. I studied music in college and allthrough high school, and I went to school on a music scholarship and edidno have some clients. Yes, I'm like the classically trained. I thought I wasgoing to be on for singer, but spoiler alert, I ain't so so we did have some clients to findthat out about us and would have us sing so there as one time where I waslike making all these dinners for people who are on the board ofdirectors for the Fining Start Museum, and they would like to bring indifferent, like groups of people and they had the guy who was like thedirector of the national endewment for the arts, and he was also like a big baseball fan. So then BudSealik. Who was the baseball commissioner? He was there too, so wigsyeah, so the guy who was in charge of the national edelment for the arth. He wasalso a producer for angels in America, and the producersand like big, huge Broadway, shows Wowso, I'm just like killing myselfmaking dinner and we were like making stuff there. You know it was only avery small dinner party, so we're cooking at the residencts lot of htimes wel we would have stuff prepared and then we just kind of would have toheat it ut. But it wasn't like a full like personal cheffing type of asituation which this one was. So we do that and then I'm like literallywashing dishes, and then I hear the post be like Oh Brok, ra, so I'like Drang my hands up andthen I have to go in there and sin, and I come back and and then anyway, andshe would have me, do it for every all of these. The series of dinner partiesfor all these different people and what Di you sing like did you lik have somealittle something n. It was like you had no IDA, you were going to do. Youdidn't have anything prepared, O? No, no, no that's the trick was that afterlike they did so many of them. It was like our stick like Gotcha. I wouldstill be hustling, though, like I that didn't change how much work I still hadto be doing and like washing dishes and cutting things and making things wasmaking sure eveything was coming out all right and then have to go in thereand like perfor, like a legit performance. I think I saying Oh gosh, maybe this time like OntromHebret or something I think, itwas something like that. That's kind of outwhich I just saw at the end of what's the show where they have that song atthe end, there's a show that I just sa watching and she performs that at theend of it, it's killing me that I can't...

...think Oh shit's creek at the end thinkshe performs that's at least the last one that I saw there's like anotherseason coming that and she performs that song and it's amazing. Oh that'scool! I'm envisioning you in like dirty apron with like meat blood on it andyou just walk out and perform that. But I imagine that's not how you remembedthe Apron and then perform. No. It was an leave it on, like you know what kindof Shek! Let's do this right. We did one thing it was like for thisinterfaith breakfast or dinner, or something for this. It was a bigcaterinything and there was all these like heads of different churches anddifferent COMMUNITI leaders and- and then I supposed to sing at that and frazen had just came, come out. Okay,and so I go out there and bust that a little frozen, we'll let it goright yesye of coursethis one guy goes and we like commands the attention of thewhole table. He's like I was a Newport beach when that when that first cameout- and I looked at my wife- and I thought this is going to be a hit andwe're all like yeah- no no done S, we all thought that Disney ever everyone, its no big, surprise Wa, likeyou, saw some indie movie or, like you know this. This thiss, like HoiNapoleon dynamite or is like. Oh, this is going to be big. That's a littlemore legit like non it, but Ea Min Disney yeah, the newest big desny movie,yeah, it's going to be bag like I saited raising Arizona, and I knew thatthose guys were going to have as anicolas cage and Holly Hunter whereyou're Goingto have po Jman was going some place like I's, notlike that. Okay, so you guys can probably tellfrom brick stories that she is a caterer and you know involved in thefood industry we're going to get into all of that. But first I want tointroduce Hor little more iman to make some assumptions that I don't knowabout you brook, and then you tell me if I'm wrong and just tell me the rightNanswir. So first, I think that you have three sisters and one brothersoright in correct.

You know what I also love is Retro Game Shows, Oh retro game shows, do, doyou mean like game, show network any old ones or is there a show calledretro game shows. There's a show called like. I think it's called comet okaachannel, that's called the comet channel and then there's another oneshoot I can't on any of T it.

To tell the truth, I love all those I loveall those old game shows for sure you and I haveike like old movies. I reallylove like old stuff, Nice Al, the old stuff, yeah. Okay, I have one last onefor you. I think that your high school crush was Duky Houser, oh, no, no, never...

...nolet's! Just say when I married myhusband. We both looked at each other later on and we're like yeah. I reallythought I was going to have a gengle fever situation, but I guess I endedwith a Whity Soyou. Both felt that way was the same. My High School ChrustasTheo huxtable, actually oh yeah, he very responsible, very responsible, itsso cute, nice guy. Yes, no just any just any BLAK. Guy, likeyeah P, I kind of Generaie to menstyle. Oh yeah,like that that fealing, because I owas but then I thought well wait. They'llalways be like better dressed and fancier than me, orrect terribe sation,feeling I get from a boys, Tomenguy yeah like a good Pol. You know yes,really nice like clean snakers, yes, breaht Weit k like Thi, swagger, okay, so we're goingto talk about your business. So first it s far. As I know, itstarted with gourmet. Girls. Catering right was that the first business youstarted. Yes and you started with your sisters, my sister Hilary okay. So sheand I started it like almost twenty years ago. Okay and inthe beginning, we would just do stuff like like for Friends Party is cards yeah, Oh peoplewould say: Oh can you we can you do like a wedding and we'd say sure, andthen they be like well, how much could we pay and I'm like a fiftylar GiftCard? An tit like I'm so stupid that took days of days of re you felt aboutcharging because it was like o you're just the beginning, and you know I didwork for a cater. When I lived in Utah, I had wanted to go to school likequolinary school, but I got scholarships for music, and so myparents likely should probably go for music, because who knows ifyou're going to get another scholarship- and this is your chance and you can alwaysgo back to cooking school, which is true, te o like I, so I always wanted to like.I always loved, cooking and Cotch loved being around food and all that kind ofstuff. So that was always like a passion from when I was like eightyears old. But what pushed you to instead of like getting a job as a chefsomewhere to like start your own business? Well, I had, I just startedour family. We had just arto family, so I had two kids right when it when we decidedto start- and we just thought it would be like a good like side Gig like aside, HOS cat, wor, soting Yeai, don't want to work fol I mean I would ratherbe poor and get to be home yeah. That was what my what I thought now. I thinkjust GOINGTO try and get a job. Oi mean it was it's it's wonderful, butyou know what I mean like there's things where I think. Oh it W uld, itwould not have been so bad actually might have babe last time the week, but and then you expanded to this you soyou had sweeties as a food truck. First Right. Yes, we got a food track and ittrecked for one event, and then I stope trucking. So then we just did it out ofour commercial kitchen, where we would deliver warm cookies and to a reallylarge delivery area, and then that was going pretty good. So we thought weshould get a brick and mortar like that was the next step. So we did that andthat we've been open almost a year somein. How is it going? We talk aboutBEBRONA virus on a secondre corona virus. It was going well right or busy.Yeah Yeah, I would say it's still going pretty good and your sil deliverat orse.We we don't build her now. We use like different delivery platforms likeubreds, Dordash and GRUBHUB, okay gotcha. So that is good, but it's it's. It could be much worse andgrateful that we're still able to be open that we're still able to getsupplies most everything we need. We've been able to find and weave goodrelationships with our different distributors and- and you know, fooddelivered people. So that's been good, so it really could be. You had to closeyour dining area, correct yeah, but you...

...ca ave tables out, but we have like a adrive up and order situation and we pet we're working in and a couple differentthings that we could make it a little bit more smooter different avenues forpeople to order bits I mean so far so good. We will. Who knows who knows howlong this will? Last at least a month yeah at least I know schools justclosedto the end of the year, so potentially a little bit longer. Unfortunately, butyou know people always need cookies, they're still going to need poockiesand act. I feel like this is a big comfort food time like yeah. What elseare we going to do? Eide sit home and eat? I need some cookies well and I hadnoticed a lot of people camme to pick up fickese to like deliver to neighborsor friends or grandparents or like hospital staff or policemen. Youknow those types of things, so it's we've seen a lot of kindness and a lotof really beautiful gestures from People Sa. It's been it's a huge blessing to be able to be onthat side of it to see the altrs Yo know yeah, because I know it would be alet more difficult if I couldn't work- and I was just at home and just worried-so I'm grateful for that- that I have the place to go and my kids work withus too. So we all kind of culdn get a break. If we have a shift. You know Idifferent so we're different groups of each other, we're not all with eachother in the house. So how many kids do you have and what are their es? I havefive kids, the oldest is twenty and then eighteen, seventeen, fifteen andtwelve, and are they all working with you right now? Everybody has a shift herethere. Some of them work a lot more than others. The youngest one doesn'twork, as you know, Shell Pin when we need her to but she's, actually a greatworker she', a the best one, hey they're doing or online work, IthemidleDaghters, painting her room and older daughter, Don know what she's doing,but my like, my oldest son, usually doesn't he got laid off at his Javon,so he's picking up a shift tonight for us, so tat kind of amazing and it's stillsamily Ondin vews yeah, my dephews work and then my sisters. So it's it's good.It could be a lot worse. So I do want to know like. What's it been likestarting a company with kids at home, have you been able to see them morethan you would if you're working full time you know? What's it been like? I think the good thing is that they canwork with us, but there are definitely times when I felt like like especially when you're building it,because we did as much build atwork as we could ourselves. So I just there am in the very beginningwhen the shop open, we were there for a lot, so I don't know it was hard andthat Thos yeah, an look at Dhesemmern is te rubderbecause you're just working so much but then weme kind of Gat a little bit moreestablished a little bit better scheduled than the good thing is. Weall understand each other's need to be there for things for our kids, so wecan, you know, take turns if somebody eeds like I need to go to this schoolthing I so let me help do that and all ah Blah, so that kind of stuff is good.I would I don't even know if it would be better to have a nine to five or gotgotcha very diffnt. I mean yeah t well as involved now. It's still you and isHilary, your sister that started going to Hillary and my sister Chelsea and myother sisters work when they want to, but they didn't want to have the likefinancial partners, okay, Aweso, and are you still doing gourmet girls aswell as sweties? Yes, okay, until this that really affected yeah, theCORONABARISS has affected that a lot yeah. I really put a wrench in a lot ofweddings. Yes right, my niece was married on soon the other night. It'slike Oh GSH, yeah, hat's, crazy. We all just like watched. She got married anmy sisters living room which was amazing, Iwas Nice, you know, hey, dowhat you hot to do, because you o have big get together. So yeah, not a lot ofcatering orders these days, probably but the Suntes is cos strong yeah. Sothat has been sweeties is doing fine,...

...but I mean you know it's all. I don'tknow I always feel like it. It could be worse, but that is really like mybottle. Itcoul be worse. Tagodfri could take aturn at any minuteright. I can always be worse. Good Pun, you Olywai, so to is it with your kidsyeah. So, just yesterday for us the governor shut down, I did like a stayat home order. So kids are at home, that's a little more or a little moreaffective lately. What is it working to be like your kidsare coming and working some, but how is like the being a homeschool, mom andrunning a business how's that going t'challenging, because I mean I'm notthe strictest apparent. I know that's going to be really hard, Freeto shocker with everything I know aboutyou. That really surprises me, so I do kind of expect them to beresponsible for a lot of their stuff. You know- and I will check up on them,but I I mean they're all they should be in charge of what they need to do andthat's part of being a big kid. So I would say I am that, like I look atsome people who have like very strict schedules for every day, but becausewe're working there's some- I can't do that. You know today is my day off andI went, you know, did some deliveries for people AF, just grecries that theyneeded and then Gome home and after this will help paints and then Iwi'llprobably do some laundry make dinner and then injusten moe sure what he'sdoing thei Holork, but the we don't have like a end ot eleven fifteen. Wedo our outside activities. No, THAT'S WEL! We do ar lunch time, yeah, THERE'SNO SKHECHU! I wrote up a schedule like that that we followed it for like anhour and then it was like done so. It's posted, but no one's followed it at all.Truly, my biggest thing is like I can not let them get necturnal, which isreal, easy hm when Hehas a lot of teenagers like they just want to stayup to way late and then sleep all they day like yeah. They just want to andthey're really all into animal crossing. What is that, like an APP? It's T, thegame on it's on the Nintendo switch onr sounds like frogger, it's no! It's!I think it's like a Sims, like you make your own universe, that there aren'tany like prostitute, aptions, the younger kid version of Sims Simsslashthere's, nothing to do with animals crossing a road. It sounds likelike no like you're building a town, okay, Gotcha, interesting! Well, Hey!You know whatever cit o Busa there, all ikes are not doing it till thr. Am Imean it's like a huge thing? That's I think we had te lest ing e like come on. TAKE OT MAK UPyeveryone was up all night building their online town, yeah yeah, okay, so Brok nfer their animalpeople.

...a place that looks like that and theyare the best coocase they're way better than crumble or whatever I don't knowwhatever the other ones are because I've had a e very like baby showers and our Friendtea when she has party shehas them there there're so much better. I like put him in the pocket e thingsAk Tom and take them II, don't Toediam! No! If you had thison video, you could tell I also don't tire of eating them. We'reactually we're going to do give away.

Are you ready? We always end with the game yeah,and this is the game we're going to do: okay, Shn. We are going to each name cookies, oneat a time until someone can think of another one. So you have the advantagehere a little bit, but we're going to have a little bit of a stipulation. Youcannot like repeat something too similar like if you said chocolate chip,I couldn't say chocolate, chip walnut like too similar right. It's got to belike I get I more different, cookie and yea say like if someone says sugarcookie, you can't say sugar cookie with sprinkles or sugar, cookie with luckycharms on top yeah that'd be stupid ioul ever I wouldnever have an answer like that anyway, okay en o posally. Clearly I thoughtyou were going to all it wouldn't have felt like I needed to clarify so now.You know, I think of you. Okay, so seasoned game showprofessional this guy. I did you have the you know the leg up, because you make cookies allday every day, but I did know that this was the game were going to play. So Ihad a chance to like think of a few cokys that Le Yeah that's true thats,so we e Sois, probably thevo, been leveled yeah. Yes, though, now I'mgiving you time to think so. Let's start you Goforsad, okay, millaway forOATMEAL, frostodotmal, chocolate, peanut butter, ginger, snap, snigger,noodle, chocolate chip, sugar, wafer sugar, cookie shoot! No, Oh ias, nothing Yo'll fudge,but can we do in brand name yeah? I think so because we know we dal'Tl knowwhat you mean when you say: Ell, Fedge, yeah dip in fuge made by elves all right e Ba all accept it HoemadeOrios Tho. I guess I could have just saidOroscoes and cream yeah, but I honestly that next say cookies. INCREA similaris the same as too similar new cookie yeah, okay about a shortbread, okay,yeah, cinnamon, swirrl, okay, so, okay yeah. How about have youever heard of those stuffer news cook, KS Yeha with a p Anaf yeah, like I know,t ther nasty. I don't like Hem, but that's an acceptable answer. I've neverhad one, but I also so covered in in powdered sugar than had what blackpepper in them. DETM they're, like the some you'll, see hem called wedding,cookies or somethings. So I aros sa like the powder, chacer kind of a shortbreddish cookie. I A lot of people, Love them a not for me. Okay, let me think you actually, I usedto make those Mexican wedding cookies. Yes right, it's similar is on butteryand crumbly yeah like the short jail there's like not a lot of big yess, butsome of them are like Weird S: Hell be like gingery tasting and summer likelicrish tasting or SOM reallysd.

Wouldn't she she does agreat job for sure yeah. Well, she's she's Super Nice, but what I think isalso great about her is that she just loves food, so it's not necessarilylike she's going to be like a critic or critiquing the food, but she just likeseems to really enjoy the experience of it and she likes the people who do it.So I feel like it's an it was like a breath of fresh air when she startedher way because most people were like rating and giving stuff like I likethis, I hate that betit and she would say what she liked them, what shedidn't like, but it wasn't like in a mean spirit way or try to pick apartway, and I feel like that, has become more of the norm than when shefirst began. It was like, I think she was just her. You know Yes for sure,that's so much better. Like tell me what you love, you know it doesn't needto be critical yeah. I feel like food critics.
